Redskins training camp: Observations from Day 3


(John McDonnell/THE WASHINGTON POST)

Rookie inside linebacker Keenan Robinson is battling for a spot behind London Fletcher, Perry Riley and Lorenzo Alexander. Robinson had an interception in the middle of the field off of a pass from fellow fourth-rounder Kirk Cousins.

On the very next play, Cousins threw a pick to his left to rookie corner Richard Crawford.

With LG Kory Lichtensteiger resting his surgically repaired knee, rookie Josh LeRibeus got extensive work with the first team. LeRibeus has spent the bulk of camp at backup center and had some struggles back at guard.

Running back Tim Hightower (knee) didn’t take part in any of today’s team portion of practice.

Linebacker Jonathan Goff, who missed all of 2011 with the Giants while recovering from ACL surgery, was injured on a play and hobbled off the field before being tended to by trainers.

Linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan usually line up on the right and left sides of the line, respectively, but did some flip-flopping today.

The quarterback keepers by Rober t Griffin III will make things easy for the running backs. On one set of plays, after a draw from Griffin, the defense keyed on him so hard on the next play that they totally missed the handoff to Roy Helu, who split up the middle and was off to the races.

Safety Brandon Meriweather is known for his hitting - and the fines he receives for them. Today he met Helu in the hole with a clean pop that knocked the back’s helmet off.
