The mini camps ended yesterday and Jim Zorn was impressed with his draft picks, particularly with Brian Orakpo.
“Each one of the draft choices who participated, they were a bright spot, just seeing the speed with which they were working and how they picked things up,” Zorn said. “When [defensive line coach] John Palermo would tell Brian Orakpo to make a correction, the next play Brian would make that correction.” – redskins.com
As usual with rookies in their first NFL drills, injuries were had. LB Cody Glenn suffered a mild hamstring injury and sat out yesterday.
“He pulled up a little bit as he was making an adjustment and slipped,” Zorn said. “We thought it was his groin, but it was his hamstring. He'll be fine.” – redskins.com
Last year's rookie hopeful Devin Thomas saw a lot of action during the mini camp because of injuries to Santana Moss, James Thrash and Malcolm Kelly, however, his hamstring injury reared its ugly head and he had to sit out.
“I don't think it's a pulled hamstring, I just think it's irritated,” Zorn said. “We're just going to give him rest. I don't want him to have a setback. This is a minor one.” – redskins.com
OTAs begin today for the veterans. Hopefully no more injuries!

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
