Jay Gruden wouldn't have a problem starting Scherff at Guard | ESPN Redskins Blog

If he ultimately becomes a top guard, then it won't matter. If he's just average then it will, perhaps like any other player they might have drafted. Numerous NFL people said they felt he'd be best suited at guard than tackle -- one coach for another team said Scherff could be a good tackle but a great guard.

One throw I did not mention in the Robert Griffin III post, but it occurred in one-on-ones and involved Crowder. Griffin lofted a perfect deep ball to Crowder, who beat Jackson again for an over-the-shoulder grab. Crowder caught a play-action pass over the middle from Kirk Cousins in 11-on-11 work. And, working with the third offense, Crowder won deep, drawing an obvious pass interference penalty (officials are here for a couple days).

Redskins secondary must adjust to loss of players | ESPN Redskins Blog

Injuries: The Redskins' secondary is banged up so I'll be curious who will even be on the field for them. They should have safeties Dashon Goldson and Duke Ihenacho available, but the corners might be Justin Rogers and a host of unknowns if David Amerson isn't available. It gives rookie Kyshoen Jarrett more time to work in the slot, too. The kid has opened eyes with his toughness.

"I'd say about 75, 80 percent if you calculate it right now," Galette said. "It's tough [being patient], especially for somebody that's as passionate about playing as I am, but it's about when I'm finally comfortable and doing reps that I was doing in the weight room. We're just being cautious. If there was a game next week I'd be able to play, but I'm not. ... We just want to be cautious because we can't afford to have any setbacks right now."

Need to know: Preseason games loom large for back-up QB's | CSN Washington

McCoy and Cousins have both had good plays and bad. Cousins does seem to be doing a better job of protecting the ball; interceptions have been few and far between after being at least a daily occurrence last year. McCoy struggles at times but when he gets into rhythm he can complete several in a row.
