Dan Snyder: Richmond camp has been ‘spectacular’
Snyder: Sure. And last year IS last year. And we think we’re improving, we think we had a heck of a draft and a great offseason. And players are in great shape, and it’s now time to get going.

A look at some of the Redskins players to watch in their first preseason game of the season.

Dan Snyder on RGIII, expectations

"When I was a kid growing up in a small town of about 500 people in the 60′s, the way I thought I was going to get out to see places like the Redwood National Forest was to be a truck driver," Riggins said. "Obviously, I took a different route. At the same time, I get to do exactly what I wanted to do as a kid."

The Redskins Blog | Santana Moss Tells Of First Car Purchase
"I remember my senior year of college when I was about to have my son, it broke down on me and my girl. That was a wrap. I was pushing it to the side of the road with my pregnant girlfriend in the car. A fan jumped out of his car to help me push my car. I went home and told my dad I wanted a new car."

Rookies in Redskins’ secondary will be in spotlight Thursday night
DeAngelo Hall, who’s not scheduled to play against the Titans. "We don’t do a lot of tackling and things like that [in training-camp practices]. We fly around and make plays. But these guys have kind of got accustomed to our receivers.

Observations from Tuesday’s practice at Redskins training camp
Kirk Cousins said he isn’t sure exactly how much he will play Thursday, although Mike Shanahan had somewhere between 10 and 15 plays, but possibly a little more.

Cousins not sure how much he’ll play Thursday night
"I feel good with where I’m at but also know that I still have a long ways to go. I’ll be the first one to tell you I’m not satisfied in terms of being as good as where I need to be. But what I’ve done along the way, I feel good."

Kevin Matthews returning to Tennessee, but focused on job with Redskins
The 6-foot-3, 309-pound Matthews got his start in the league in 2010 by signing with Tennessee as an undrafted rookie out of Texas A&M. There, he hoped to follow in the footsteps of his father, Hall of Fame guard and long-time Houston Oiler/Tennessee Titan Bruce Matthews.

Kirk Cousins could play more than normal starting QB would in preseason
"It is a unique situation with Kirk, but it’s unique throughout the whole preseason, like we talked about," Shanahan said. "We’ve got a game plan, getting these guys ready. Kirk will play more in the second and third game than a normal starter would. We’re going to give him a lot of reps, not necessarily as much probably in this first game."
