The Redskins are back on the practice fields in Ashburn and our CSN Redskins crew is out there taking stock of the action.
JP Finlay, Chick Hernandez, Pete Hailey and Mitch Tischler will be providing regular updates from the OTA session throughout the day. Follow along here!
After practice sessions, head coach Jay Gruden will take questions.
That's it, we've concluded today's live blog. Thanks for following!
Terrell McClain had jersey on but didn't work w team during OTAs— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 31, 2017
The Redskins signed former Dallas DL Terrell McClain to a four-year deal in March.

Rob Kelley overtook Matt Jones as the starting running back last season. The team appears to be moving on from Jones altogether.
Rob Kelley just caught a three yard pass off his shoelaces. Considering his hands last year, that's basically a Tyree-type grab for him— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 31, 2017
Jordan Reed may not be here but Niles Paul is...84 just went up and got a TD from Kirk, got both feet in bounds too as he fell down— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 31, 2017
Nice hands in practice. Incumbent starter Rob Kelley will face new competition with the Redskins drafting RB Samaje Perine.
Jim Tomsula just got a bit perturbed at the lineman for not moving to the next drill quick enough. "We're just gonna walk?"— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 31, 2017
Jim Tomsula was hired as the Redskins' new defensive line coach in January.
Quinton Dunbar ankle taped up/ice bag on. Now off to the side. Doesn't look serious but pulled up a bit after defending a route on sideline— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 31, 2017
That's cornerback Quinton Dunbar, who the Redskins converted from a wide receiver in 2015.
Kirk just threw a ceiling scraper to Pryor, from his own 30 to the opposite 30. Pryor caught it over Breeland— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) May 31, 2017
The Redskins brought in Terrell Pryor to add height to the receiving corps and give Kirk Cousins a big target down field.
It's May and it's OTAs - don't read too much into it - Compton and Mason Foster taking first reps at ILB in 11v11— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 31, 2017
The linebacker competition will be fierce all summer, but in today's OTAs, Will Compton and Maston Foster took the first-team reps. Take that at face value.
Redskins corners practicing the Pick 6 drill - Josh Norman gets things startedPosted by JP Finlay on Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Josh Norman starts off the pick-6 drill.
Looks like no Trent Williams and no Jordan Reed at #Redskins OTAs. Same as last week. Also no Matt Jones.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 31, 2017
Trent Williams, Jordan Reed and Matt Jones are not at OTAs today. As JP Finlay noted, the three did not appear for the last session, either.
Matt Jones reportedly won't be participating in any OTAs with the Redskins as his career in Washington appears over.
Finally some nice weather, but that doesn't mean the players get to practice outside. Conditions are muddy at Redskins Park.
