Third round of Redskins workouts begins

Thirty-one Washington Redskins players gathered Tuesday morning for a third round of informal group workouts as the NFL Lockout reached its 94th day.

Twelve defensive players and 19 offensive players met for the first of three days of workouts at a location in northern Virginia.

Quarterbacks John Beck and Rex Grossman again alternated leading the offense. Linebackers Lorenzo Alexander and London Fletcher headed up the defense as they did last time around, in May.

That session drew 41 players the first day, including 10 rookies. Six rookies - Ryan Kerrigan, defensive lineman Chris Neild, receivers Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson, and running back Evan Royster were are on hand today.

Alexander said some of the rookies weren’t able to make the trip for financial reasons.

I’ll have more updates coming throughout the morning, so keep checking back.
