With rain falling in Ashburn, the Redskins practiced in their indoor facility.
Cornerback Josh Wilson (thigh), defensive end Adam Carriker (heel blisters) and running back Roy Helu (hamstring) all were in attendance, but watched practice. Defensive end Kentwan Balmer also was held out of practice.
Leonard Hankerson (hip), running back Tim Hightower (knee) and guard Kory Lichtensteiger (knee) went through positional drills as they continue to work their way back into form from 2011 season-ending surgeries.
Linebacker Brian Orakpo (pectoral muscle) and Jonathan Goff (knee) went through positional, but not team drills.
Receiver Pierre Garcon made perhaps the catch of the day, a diving one-handed grab from Robert Griffin III in the end zone from 20 yards out while blanketed by cornerback Cedric Griffin.
Santana Moss shook DeAngelo Hall when he lined up across the defensive back in the slot. Hall fell down and Moss made a midfield catch from Griffin, racing 40 yards untouched for a touchdown.
Rookie cornerback Chase Minnifield intercepted a Rex Grossman pass and reeled off a nice return. Minnifield also later had a near-interception of Griffin while breaking up a pass for Moss in the end zone. Minnifield did give up a Kirk Cousins touchdown pass to backup wideout Lance Lewis.
