Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Alfred Morris is "as good a back as I've been around."
The theory that Morris is an unproven back so he's subject to "Shanahanigans" is unfounded. Alf more than proved himself last year by coming off the pace to win the starting job at training camp and ranking second in the NFL in yards and 12th in YPC. Evan Royster, Roy Helu, Chris Thompson and Jawan Jamison will merely battle for scraps at training camp.
Redskins signed WR Devery Henderson, formerly of the Saints.
The 'Skins added Henderson and Donte' Stallworth to the roster in an effort to add speed to their receiving corps. With neither player providing any help on special teams, it's safe to assume they're directly competing for a spot. The Redskins are suddenly crowded at wide receiver.
Redskins DE Doug Worthington suffered a biceps injury on Wednesday.
He'll undergo more tests to determine the severity of the injury, but Coach Mike Shanahan already alluded to surgery as a possibility. Worthington was brought up off the practice squad last year, and was competing for a reserve-role with the team.
Robert Griffin III (ACL, LCL surgery) will visit surgeon Dr. James Andrews for a checkup on his knee next week.
Griffin hopes to receive clearance to resume cutting, clearing yet another hurdle in his ahead-of-schedule recovery. "It's a month of cutting drills, changing direction," RG3 said. "That way I can train my body to get back for that. I'll start cutting and after that it's just everything over and over." Griffin has progressed to performing bootlegs on the side of OTA practice.
Robert Griffin III (knee) reiterated that he's "pretty confident" he'll be ready to go when the Redskins open training camp.
The Redskins will kick off camp on July 25. Griffin continues to work out with no setbacks and draw glowing reports from observers. It's fair to say he's ahead of schedule.
