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.
