What you missed: Redskins camp weekend recap includes McCloughan, Norman, beard talk

Weekend topics from Breaking Burgundy included the Scot McCloughan injury, Norman laughs, and Riley is ready to roll.

Because you were living life, it's quite possible you missed some or most of the action from Day 2 and 3 of Washington Redskins training camp. That's why each morning we'll have a recap of the all the news, notes, features, interviews, videos and any other coverage from Breaking Burgundy's team on the ground in Richmond.

First, a reminder: No practice Sunday. Back in action Monday.

DAY 2

Training Camp Observations -- Everything you need to know about what actually happened on the field including clarity at outside linebacker?

General manager Scot McCloughan hurts a wall because of his love for his players.

WATCH: First round pick Josh Doctson updates the media on his Achilles injury and the rumored 3-month recovery prognosis that led to McCloughan's hand needing a bandage

Josh Norman drops the mic -- "He's talking about me but I'm not talking about him". The he and him are the same, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Norman also shared his belief that Washington could have a shutdown tandem at corner with Bashaud Breeland's growing confidence.

"I think that just resonates in him to be the all he can be, to outdo me, outdo anybody else that’s out there on that football field, to be the best he can be because he can be, you know, the best once he puts his mind to it. Once he develops that confidence and swagger about him to where no one can beat him, he’ll be just fine because he has that in him to be. So I’m looking forward to him having a super year."

Do not write off Perry Riley just yet -- The ILB backer comes off the PUP list to get practice reps -- and his job back.

DAY 3

* Staying with the camera, Niles Paul stepped into the Breaking Burgundy grooming lounge Friday one day after the tight end replied to a hairy question we posed on Twitter.

* Training Camp Observations -- Everything you need to know about what actually happened on the field including physical play.

With the pads going on, the Redskins coaching staff gets a better look at the abilities of the offensive and defensive line according to Gruden.

"Well, defensive line and offensive line, you want to see that physicality. You know, that’s what it’s all about. We have a lot of good defensive linemen in-house that is good competition. Young guys, veteran guys, we want to see them make some plays – get off blocks and get to the ball carrier in the running game and obviously convert to a pass rush when need be."

* It is about time -- Redskins to induct former GM Bobby Beathard into 'Ring of Fame'.

Beathard shared a funny anecdote of then owner Jack Kent Cooke's initial reaction to the hiring of Joe Gibbs.

"So I went into Mr. Cooke and he said, ‘What are we going to do about a coach?’ I said ‘I’ve got a coach.’ He said ‘What do you mean you’ve got a coach? You didn’t even tell me about the coach.’ I said, ‘Well, we haven’t hired him but I got a coach I am thinking of.’ He had some ideas and he said ‘OK, who is it?’ I said ‘Well, you probably haven’t heard of him. It’s a guy named Joe Gibbs.’ He said ‘Joe Gibbs? Who in the hell is Joe Gibbs?’ He said, ‘When we announce a guy named Joe Gibbs, they will crucify me [Cooke]!’"

* Neil's Nugget: Although this is not the NBA where teams have to look attractive to superstars in order to land them, big name free agents are going to want to play for the Redskins. Junior Galette has gone on record about how loyal Scot McCloughan is to his players, which is backed up by the emotion the Redskins GM felt after hearing a, now outdated, injury prognosis for Josh Doctson. McCloughan stated on ESPN 980 that Washington is about 10 players away from really contending and the lure of working for a player's GM is bound to lower that number in the future.
