Some 40 players attend Redskins’ lockout workout

The Washington Redskins are holding their second players’-own
minicamp to try to keep themselves sharp during the lockout.

About 40 players attended the first day of the three-day
minicamp Tuesday at a Virginia high school. The turnout included 10
of the team’s 12 rookie draft picks.

Also in attendance was NFL Players Association executive
director DeMaurice Smith, who took questions from players for about
15 minutes after the practice ended.

The practices also offer a chance to renew the big on-field
question for the Redskins: Who will be the starting quarterback
this fall?

Both Rex Grossman and John Beck were present. Grossman is a free
agent who hopes to re-sign with the Redskins, while Beck has
received strong praise from coach Mike Shanahan.
