Players definitely weren't happy with the reports of them laughing after a game. It led to a little grumbling throughout the week, but only one player turned down interviews because of it. Fact remains, though, that it was one of the more unusual postgame locker rooms I've covered in my 20 years on this beat.

The average starting field position after a kickoff by the Redskins is the 29.2 yard line, the second highest in the NFL.

Stephen Bowen has looked good working out off to the side -- he was running hills the other day. They were wise to keep Leonard Hankerson on the list; all knees react differently to this injury and he was initially told a minimum of nine months for his recovery. At the end of camp he still wasn't near 100 percent. I don't know when they'll activate them from this list; they need to see them in practice to get a better feel.
