News: Hankerson (knee) continues to sit out practice, but is running better and could be nearing a return, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Hankerson has a long road to winning a roster spot. He is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery and needs to prove he is healthy and can be consistent on the field.
Thu. July 31, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hatcher (knee) has no immediate timetable to receive clearance to practice, the Washington Post reports. He was seen running on the sideline and appeared to be less than 100 percent.
Impact: Hatcher is currently on the PUP and is expected to miss the rest of training camp with participation in the preseason on his part not a lock.

News: Thomas sat out Wednesday's practice because of a tweaked hamstring, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: The injury appears minor and he should be back on the field in a few days.
Wed. July 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thomas (foot) is looking healthy and making a good impression at training camp, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Thomas missed his rookie season with a Lisfranc injury. He is competing for a starting safety position.

News: Royster (hamstring) practiced on Wednesday, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Royster has been out since Saturday after pulling his hamstring during practice. He's trying to make the Redskins as the third running back behind both Alfred Morris and Roy Helu, but the injury is not helping his cause. Royster is also being pushed by Chris Thompson, who has reportedly had a better camp thus far. It also may hurt Royster that he's more of a one-dimensional back who isn't recognized as a pass catching threat, but we'll see if he can impress the Redskins' coaching staff now that he's back at practice.
Wed. July 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garcon (hamstring) practiced Wednesday, csnwashington.com reports.
Impact: The report suggests that Garcon appeared to be limited in his participation Wednesday, but the wideout's presence on the field is nonetheless encouraging after he strained his hamstring during Monday's practice.

News: Griffin continues to look stronger and more fundamentally sound when compared to last year's training camp, the Washington Post reports. "I think he's done a really good job of working on his mechanics, his footwork and his delivery, being able to have more of a compact release where he is able to change his arm angle up, kind of feel those soft spots in the pocket," offensive coordinator Sean McVay said.
Impact: Griffin sat out most of training camp and all of the preseason last year, which impacted his preparation for the season. He is poised to rebound in 2014.
Tue. July 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Forbath made all of his field goal attempts in practice Monday while his competition, Zach Hocker, only made one of three, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Forbath is the favorite over the rookie Hocker but nothing will be finalized until the preseason.
Mon. July 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garcon left Monday's practice early due to a sore right hamstring, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Both Garcon and coach Jay Gruden downplayed the wideout's hamstring issue, so this doesn't look like anything that will develop into a long-term concern. Garcon led NFL receivers in both catches (113) and targets (181) in 2013, and while the addition of the dynamic DeSean Jackson to the Redskins' wideout mix could result in a hit in Garcon's workload, the team's passing offense as a whole figures to benefit from the improved health of QB Robert Griffin.
Mon. July 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coaches have praised Murphy's development during his first training camp, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: It will be interesting to see how Murphy fits into the defensive plans. Right now, he's behind Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan (knee) at outside linebacker.
Mon. July 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson (shoulder) has received more work over the last few practices with Evan Royster (hamstring) sitting out, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: It appears that Thompson is third or fourth on the depth chart at this point.
Mon. July 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brown has signed with the Redskins, CSN Washington reports.
Impact: Brown saw the field in seven games for the Cowboys last season, registering 10 tackles and one sack along the way. The 26-year-old will add another pass-rushing option at outside linebacker in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme.
July 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cofield is feeling healthy after offseason surgery for a sports hernia, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Cofield sat out all the team's offseason workouts, and opting to rest patiently appears to have paid off. The defensive tackle said he's 100 percent healthy now, and should be ready to anchor the Redskins defensive front heading into the preseason.
Sat. July 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Royster is day-to-day with a slight hamstring pull.
Impact: Royster's injury is evidently a minor one, but he's in the midst of an intense battle for the third running back spot on the Washington roster and can't afford to miss much time. Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk both have fresher legs than Royster, and both are significantly more explosive, too.

News: Crawford (knee) has been cleared to practice, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Torn ligaments in Crawford's knee ended the 23-year-old's 2013 season before it even began, but he's been cleared to practice and will be on the field when the Redskins open camp Thursday. He will compete with Tracy Porter for playing time behind starting cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson.
Wed. July 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Porter (shoulder) has been cleared to practice, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Porter underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in the offseason, but he's been cleared to take the field for the team's first practice of training camp Thursday. The 27-year-old notched 67 tackles (53 solo), 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season with Oakland, and will compete with Richard Crawford for playing time behind starters DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson.

News: Hankerson (knee) will open training camp on the PUP list, csnwashington.com reports.
Impact: Meanwhile, Hankerson, who is bouncing back from ACL and LCL tears, has been running and cutting on his surgically-repaired knee, but the Redskins are of no mind to rush him back. Once Hankerson does return, he'll have to look sharp in order to secure a roster spot, let alone a key role in the Washington offense.

News: Police say Davis is wanted in a domestic violence case. District of Columbia Police said Wednesday they are searching for the 28-year-old Davis, who lives in Leesburg, Virginia. He's suspected in a domestic assault that occurred in the early morning hours of June 2 in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, known for its nightlife.
Impact: Davis was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in February for his second violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. He said he was suspended for taking a supplement that included a banned substance. He says it wasn't for marijuana, which was the reason for his first suspension. A day after his suspension was announced, he was charged in Virginia with driving while intoxicated. Davis played for the Redskins from 2008-2013 and is now a free agent.

News: Bowen (knee) will open training camp on the Redskins' PUP list, CSN Washington reports.
Impact: Bowen's season was cut short last year after the 30-year-old defensive end was forced to undergo microfracture knee surgery in December. While his recovery's initial timetable was set at six months, microfracture procedures have been historically tricky to overcome and most of the time require a case-by-case rehab evaluation. With that in mind, Bowen will continue building his health during training camp, when he can be taken off the PUP list and begin practice at any time. Nonetheless, Bowen could see his role slightly reduced this season, since the Redskins brought in Jason Hatcher (knee) this offseason to bolster their defensive end options.
Wed. July 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hatcher (knee) will begin training camp on the Redskins' PUP list, CSN Washington reports.
Impact: Hatcher underwent a scope on his knee at the end of mini-camp and was expected to miss four-to-six weeks while recovering. As of now, it's been five weeks since the procedure, so his inclusion on Washington's PUP list isn't exactly a surprise. The Redskins will likely err on the side of caution with their big money free agent addition to begin camp, but Hatcher, who posted a career-high 11 sacks for the Cowboys last season, should be fine for Week 1.
Mon. July 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Caussin was signed by the Redskins on Monday, Howard Balzer of Lockerdome reports.
Impact: Recently cut by the Bills, Caussin has battled through injuries over the last few seasons. He hasn't caught a pass since 2011, contributing primarily on special teams.
Thu. July 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Grant, a fifth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, will likely make the final roster, CSN Washington reports.
Impact: Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts are expected to work as the Redskins' top three receivers, leaving Grant to compete with the likes of Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss and Aldrick Robinson for the No. 4 and 5 spots on the depth chart. Speaking at rookie minicamp earlier this offseason, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that Grant plays like a 10-year veteran.
Wed. July 16, 2014 | STATS
News: Buffalo released Caussin.
Impact: Caussin missed most of the past two seasons because of hip and knee injuries.
