What you missed: Redskins August 2 camp recap includes Norman, Ihenacho, Cravens

Are the Josh Norman fears overblown? Are the Su'a Cravens injury fears underplayed? Plus Redskins confidence talk and more from Richmond.

Because you were living life, it's quite possible you missed some or most of the action from the Washington Redskins training camp on August 2. 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: the Redskins will have a morning walkthrough Wednesday at 10:35 a.m. followed by an afternoon special team's practice at 3 p.m. Check out the full training camp schedule here.

* Training camp observations -- Let's talk about this Josh Norman practice "controversy" and whether Kendall Reyes' familiarity with Joe Barry's defense give him an inside track to a starting job.

Gruden's joke of a "rookie training room" might actually be a nightmare -- Second round pick Su'a Cravens sits out of practice with first round pick Josh Doctson.

Even though we did not think Doctson's injury was serious either, Cravens should be back soon.


* Training camp battles -- The key to the left guard and center positions start and end with Spencer Long.

* Right tackle is a position without a battle -- So instead Breaking Burgundy talks to Morgan Moses about who he would take to Vegas and more.

The outsider's insight -- Breaking Burgundy's Manny Benton presents five early camp takeaways including Bashaud Breeland's dominant play.

* Confidence is key -- Duke Ihenacho goes on camera with Breaking Burgundy to discuss what is different this training camp.

*  Quote of the day

"I mean, it comes from us being competitive, man – being professionals. I mean, if you don’t have confidence, you might as well not step on the field. We’re not sitting here practicing every day on run game and run schemes to go out there and be mediocre. I feel like any team in the league should set those expectations high, and we’re no different." --  Left tackle Trent Williams on the Redskins confidence.

* Neil's Nugget: Between Norman and Breeland, the Redskins arguably have two shutdown corners. Although Norman is the superior talent, evidenced by his $50 million guaranteed contract, he may not always be Washington's best cover man during any given game. If Norman temporarily struggles, Joe Barry should not hesitate to switching up his matchups and giving Breeland a chance to cover the Odell Beckham and Dez Bryant's of the world. Giving Breeland opportunities to tee off against the opponent's number one receiver will help his growth and possibly give Norman a breather while tending to an easier assignment. Unlike in recent years, the Redskins have riches at the cornerback position and they need to make the most of it.
