Ouch: Receiver Brandon Lloyd (shin splints) did not participate in team drills and is day to day. Clinton Portis remained sidelined for a third day because of a sore knee. Portis said afterwards that if they had a game today, he could play.
However, it's troubling that his knee continues to bother him. There's no way anyone can feel confident at this point that it won't be an issue during the season. That's why when Portis and Santana Moss miss because of leg problems, there has to be some concern.
By the way, DT Cornelius Griffin did return after spraining his ankle Wednesday night. And OL Jason Fabini sat out with a strained groin.
Adios: The Redskins cut DT Jared Clauss and signed DT Vaka Manupana. It was a somewhat surprising move given that Gregg Williams had praised Clauss only a couple days earlier and he seemed to be the sort of energy player they like.
Blown off: For all the talk we had about Sean Taylor being more mature this season, the media hasn't seen it. At least not yet. Taylor blew off the press for the third straight day, after we were told he would talk. Oh well. But Taylor did make a nice pick of a Jason Campbell pass on a deep out.
Brunnie: Mark Brunell has seemingly spent most of camp throwing passes underneath, dumps to the tight ends and backs. But he unloaded a pretty pass in the right corner of the end zone to receiver Kyle Brown, a 25-yard strike.
Short timer: Got to wonder about Casey Bramlet's future. He has to prove he's better than Jordan Palmer to stick around beyond next week as the Redskins likely will cut one of the two youngsters soon. No need for five QBs on the roster. Bramlet has not looked very good. Neither has Palmer, but he's a draft pick.
Mossman: Campbell hooked up with Santana Moss on a slant pass for a 25-yard score.
Statement time: Tight end Chris Cooley wore a T-shirt with Chuck Norris on the front and on the back it read, ''Chuck Norris kills 100 percent of whatever the [bleep] he wants.'' There was no bleep; just the real stuff.
LB play: London Fletcher nearly made an interception on one of Jason Campbell's first throws in the seven-on-seven session. Marcus Washington tipped a Mark Brunell screen pass, coming off the corner on a blitz.
YouTube: Jason Campbell has a cool commerical for NFL.com Fantasy Football. In it, he throws one pass downfield and then unleashes a second one that hits the other in the air, both balls bouncing to receivers running downfield. Is it real? Campbell wouldn't say it was and termed it a ''mystery unsolved.''
