Redskins Tuesday practice: RG3 off (sort of)

RICHMOND--Here's a look at today's practice via the tweets of Tandler and Tarik. Don't look for RG3's passing stats because he did not participate in 7 on 7 drills. It was a partial day of for Griffin, who will get three more days off as he will not be playing on Thursday when the Redskins open their preseason against the Titans. He did, as shown in the picture, do some wind sprints after practice.
Turner will talk to media RT @CHICKatCSN: RBs coach Bobby Turner will lead practice today in place of Shanahan, who is attending a funeral.

Some players are wearing shells others, like QB's and some LB's, wearing no pads at all. #RedskinsTalk

Cousins off to a slow start with one batted down and another thrown near nobody. #miscommunication #RedskinsTalk

Another Cousins pass batted down, this one by Kerrigan. First one was by Cofield. #RedskinsTalk

QB's are getting play calls from Kyle via the radio headset. Simulating game conditions. #RedskinsTalk

Helu continues to impress, good quickness to edge and burst up the middle on consecutive plays. #RedskinsTalk

Trent is out there with the cast on. Might have to rethink whether or not he'll play tomorrow. He might. #RedskinsTalk

Chris Thompson is a full go for the second straight day. Maybe he'll get some snaps tomorrow. #RedskinsTalk

Amerson with a nice one-handed pick of Rex. But he didn't run with it Raheem: "When we get picks, we score!" #RedskinsTalk

Then Rambo drops a pick. Could not hear Morris' talk with him but likely not tweetable anyway. #RedskinsTalk

I don't have a lot to say about special teams drills in camp. Limited contact teams is an oxymoron. #RedskinsTalk

— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) August 6, 2013
Looks like no 7 on 7 today so no action for #RG3. #nostats #RedskinsTalk

— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) August 6, 2013
A lot of praise from raheem directed to Jerome Murphy. #darkhorse? #RedskinsTalk

About a one-minute statement from Bobby Turner, who ran today's practice in place of Mike Shanahan, who is attending a funeral. No questions

Fans, Redskins pay tribute to longtime NBC Sports Washington reporter Rich Tandler

NBC Sports Washington lost an important piece of its family this week when longtime Redskins reporter Rich Tandler died on Tuesday. He was 63.

Tandler joined NBC Sports Washington in 2011. He began his writing career in his 40s after working in restaurants and created his blog, Real Redskins, in 2004, which became the longest-running blog on the team. He also wrote three books on the Redskins and posted an estimated 2,300 consecutive “Need To Know” posts, becoming a must-read for Redskins fans as part of their morning routine.

“We’re devastated to learn of the loss of one of our most loved and valued media members, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington,” Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder said in a statement. “His dedication to covering the Redskins over the past 14 years has made him an irreplaceable presence among our media corps, and he will be in our hearts. Our thoughts are with his family, our family at NBC Sports Washington, and the entire Redskins community. He will be truly missed.”

The team will hold a moment of silence for Tandler before its game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and will keep his regular seat on press row empty. On Wednesday, Redskins quarterback Alex Smith offered his “thoughts and prayers to his family.”

“Rich’s kind and warm nature made him a good friend and an especially close colleague to many of us at NBC Sports Washington,” NBC Sports Washington General Manager Damon Phillips said in a statement. “His passion for his work and the Redskins was inspiring and made him a critical part of many of our successes over the past seven years. This is a very big loss for the sports community. Our thoughts are with his family and his many friends.”

Fans, Redskins players, fellow reporters, and friends of Tandler paid tribute to him on social media.

“Incredibly saddened by the sudden passing of NBCSW’s Rich Tandler. He was a great talent and an important voice in the DC sports community. Our thoughts are with his wife @MissSkeetersmom, his family and his family at @NBCSWashington,” Washington Wizards and Capitals owner Ted Leonsis wrote on Twitter.

2018 NFL Power Rankings: Patriots prove they still got it, Rams remain top dog

In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.

It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.

Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?

Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.

The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.

So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?

And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards. 

How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
