Before Wednesday, Scherff had worked exclusively with the first line at right tackle during full-team work. On Wednesday, he took snaps at right guard with Morgan Moses at right tackle (the Redskins were in shells, not shoulder pads). Moses handled all the first-team work at tackle and Scherff took all the snaps at right guard. Spencer Long, who has been working with the first offense at right guard, handled that position with the second group.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III did not have his best day: there were moments good and bad. He did not look as decisive as he had been before the one-day break or as sharp. He failed to connect on a deep pass to Pierre Garcon (the play took a while and Griffin probably would have been sacked on the play). Griffin also lost one pass as he stepped up in the pocket and appeared to pump-fake; the ball squirted out of his hands.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III. He was up and down all last summer and his showing versus New England did not help matters. He just wasn't sharp. But in seven practices this summer, I'd say Griffin has had a good day on five of them and was inconsistent on the other two. Now he needs to have a good showing against another defense, one where he doesn't know what's coming (and one that won't know what's coming from him, either).
"I used to stretch, but only a little bit before practice," Reed said. "Now I'm in the training room every chance I get. I'm in there at least three or four times a day, usually one of the last guys to leave the facility. Just making sure."
Injured cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland (knee) and David Amerson (shoulder) did some rehab work on the side. Breeland had a brace on his injured right knee (sprained MCL) but he is able to walk and put weight on that leg. If he is ready in the lower range of the 4-6 week estimate he could be back in time to get into preseason game No. 4 against the Jaguars. Terrance Knighton missed practice with the flu.
