Observations from Thursday’s practice at Redskins training camp
The Redskins suffered a scare when linebacker Brian Orakpo left practice with a leg injury and was checked both on the field, and then in the trainers’ tent. Orakpo said as he headed to the locker room after practice that he didn’t believe the injury to be very serious, and the team announced a short time later that he had suffered a thigh bruise.

I think Chip will do a great job there because they’ve got great skill players on offense. … So I think they’ll be successful in what they do and how they do it. But hopefully we’ll play well in that first game."

"It’s not necessarily, ‘How do they stop the zone read and how are we going to make the zone read work?’ " Shanahan said. "It’s like, ‘All right, this works good. It’s not great to run the zone read versus this look. What other play do we have that is awesome versus this look? Let’s get good at that because eventually we are going to see this look and when we see this look we don’t want to run it. Are we going to be able to execute this other play that they’ve just opened up?’ That’s really what we’ve been trying to get good at."
