The Daily Twitter will be posted at the beginning of every day (at midnight in Washington, DC). The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general, along with a smattering of other things.

Thank you to all the men and women who came out to #MilitaryAppreciationDay presented by @geico military. We hope you had a great time and can’t wait to see you again this season! #HTTR #SkinsCamp pic.twitter.com/c8BR7oHs2K— Redskins Salute (@RedskinsSalute) July 27, 2019
Today’s sked: 9:45 am practice. 4:40 walk-thru. Forecast: ☀️ . Reminder: no practice Monday. So after doing this tomorrow: I’ll be doing this ♂️— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
The Redskins say a report that says Trent Williams' relationship with the Redskins is beyond repair is, to quote Tony Wyllie, Sr VP of Communications, "100 percent false." .... one note: Trent Williams has not said a word publicly. Stronger statement if he's the one saying it.— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
When u talk to players and coaches they’ll point to signs of progress on a play by play basis. Learns quick. Still: patience. Long term view important. So much to learn way beyond the physical skills. Can’t emphasize that enough. https://t.co/O7Hzrtjnj8— John Keim (@john_keim) July 27, 2019
Jay Gruden asked about the benefits of being in Richmond vs at home in Ashburn— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 28, 2019
"None, really. It's football."
Says the meetings, practices, etc are the same whether you're in a parking lot, on a field, in Richmond or in California.
Right tackle Morgan Moses showed up for his press conference wearing a familiar jersey -that of Trent Williams, who continues to hold out. "Pretty sure he wants to be here," Moses said. "He has to figure out some things that are above my pay grade." pic.twitter.com/SE8uejsJ4M— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019

"This is a custom made, vintage Trent Williams jersey. You can't get this online." https://t.co/4xA3gq3vL7— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 28, 2019
Moses emphasizes that he does expect Williams to return at some point. https://t.co/epLYoojaO2— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) July 28, 2019
Morgan Moses says there isn’t another guard he’d rather play next to than Brandon Scherff. Scherff, of course, needs a new contract to stay with Washington beyond this season.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) July 28, 2019
Jay Gruden said they're getting Geron Christian (knee) and Chase Roullier (shoulder) ready to go for Tuesday.— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Gruden said Trey Quinn has the slot spot locked down. Zero surprise considering uncertainty over who would be next. A few guys will get reps there, including UDFA Steven Sims. Cam Sims said he's worked there too; he's learning all 3 spots. Kidzy working inside too.— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Gruden said Jordan Brailford, on PUP, is still 'a couple weeks out' maybe... team was upbeat about what he showed during OTAs.— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Cassanova McKinzy had a really nice session against the offensive linemen, typically getting to the QB with speed and in one case used his hands exceptionally well to throw off the tackle #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 28, 2019
Receiver Trey Quinn wasn't overjoyed to hear coach Jay Gruden say he had the slot position "locked down". Quinn is only one year removed from being Mr. Irrelevant and likes the chip it put on his shoulder.https://t.co/EF1utnYU9E— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Can see it in Pierschbachers’ 2nd rep. Goes at the DT, negates the first rush, DT falls to the ground trying to go to plan B. But can see risk too, Pierschbacher in general pops up a little too high, risks bullrush driving him back, which happens a lot in those clips— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) July 28, 2019
It would be crazily ironic, all this hubbub of trying different guys at the position and even signing guys to contract only to find that the solution has been on the roster already for most of the offseason— Aaron (#CampSZN) (@_YaDoneMessedUp) July 28, 2019
Wes Martin vs. Jonathan Allen for most of his reps. Decent first rep but the other two Allen won the reps pretty easily. Last play was a good rep against JoJo Wicker. pic.twitter.com/hJcgH3ZyAp— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) July 27, 2019
Can see why Rob Ryan fits in with Jay Gruden and his staff. High energy and having fun https://t.co/mikS2fFWbO— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) July 28, 2019
I asked @MontaeNicholson what defines success for him. His answer was mature beyond his years and a true sign of the growth he's experienced in the last year.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 28, 2019

Wes Martin just beat Austin Maloata in his 1-on-1. Pushed him down and made him touch the earth. After play finished Maloata pushed Martin in the chest and Martin responded with his hands up like, “What?” #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 28, 2019
Haskins just completed his best period of training camp. Had four touchdown passes in a red zone period, including a dime of a fade ball to Trey Quinn over an outstretched Norman.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 28, 2019
This has been his best day so far. Good day for all three QB’s.
Not sure how Redskins keep seven WR on the 53, but Robert Davis's work making me ponder the scenario.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) July 28, 2019
Been hearing some great things about Haskins today, across all of the reporters present. Need to temper expectations, but it's nice to hear he's making progress.— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) July 28, 2019
Haskins has been pegged as astute. Maybe things are slowing down a bit. #Redskins https://t.co/byjQ5ElPiC
Something I’ve noticed, the coaches have used Kelvin Harmon on a number of motions, and drags. His last TD, he started essentially out of the TE position, initiated a block, released and then dragged before Dwayne Haskins found him. Harmon broke an arm tackle #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 28, 2019
Intensity Ramps up as go live tackling for 3 plays inside the 5. Jim Tomsula: “all about attitude... do you got the balls to do it”. Good pops. Looked like on third play Reynolds stretches over. I think.— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Defense is hot. Rob Ryan yelling at his guys “Hit them!” Last rep, Jay Gruden yelling, “There’s no secret what’s coming next.” Offense goes goal line run to Craig Reynolds, Deion Harris hits him hard, Reynolds keeps legs going, extends ball over line for TD #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 28, 2019
First time I've seen Dominique Rodgers Cromartie on the field a lot. Don't know if that's vet treatment or something along those lines.— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) July 28, 2019
Practice almost over.— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) July 28, 2019
Easily best practice of the week. QBs loosening up and letting it fly. Look to be more confident in playbook/reads. Less dump offs and letting plays develop. Fun battle so far. All 3 QBs had good days. #Redskins
Until Robinson gets caught up and Christian comes back full go, or Penn signs, or Trent comes back, going to have to deal with Flowers at LT.— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) July 28, 2019
Robert Davis said his injury was the same as Teddy Bridgewater’s and he doubted whether he’d ever play again. He’s very relieved to be out here and put together a really nice day. Said he only thinks about his knee when we bring it up. So maybe we should stop bringing it up— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) July 28, 2019
Another day, another after practice session between Josh Norman and Kelvin Harmon. Harmon had himself a really nice day this morning, scoring a few times. #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 28, 2019
Whoa. Slow down. Many many more steps to go. I would not jump to that conclusion at this time at all...— John Keim (@john_keim) July 28, 2019
Haskins almost fumbles the snap but is able to gather it and keep eyes downfield. Good pocket. Haskins delivers great ball to TE Flanagan down seam just over hand of Monte Nicholson. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/6LznS9k0BM— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) July 28, 2019

Ravens’ QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be out 4-8 weeks with a hairline fracture in his right thumb, per source. Griffin injured his thumb tonight during practice.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 28, 2019
I was able to catch the rep that RG3 injured his hand on. He hit Tim Williams on the helmet on his follow through. Wishing him a speedy recovery. pic.twitter.com/v7YspxYsgj— Spencer N. Schultz (@ravens4dummies) July 28, 2019
He's been flashing at training camp, and although he's not from Alabama, #Redskins DL Caleb Brantley could soon become part of the 'Alabama Wall'. @RShavatt21 profiles his path, and his promise, here:https://t.co/MALLKCZI3L— Riggo's Rag (@RiggosRag) July 28, 2019
In an Uber and asked the driver if he’s a Redskins fan. He hedged, paused and then asked (I think seriously) what’s the deal with RGIII. Sigh— Matt Perison (@matt_perison) July 28, 2019

In NFL training camps we see dehydration levels dip to their lowest in day 3 and it takes til day 11 to normalize. We also see significant amounts of soft tissue injuries in that time period.— Rick Burkholder (@proatc) July 27, 2019

On the day he boasted about his plans for constant growth, Tyreek Hill should have resisted acting on a grudge against a reporter https://t.co/ANQKnSyJnd— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 28, 2019
