August 5-- Redskins-Ravens scrimmage

Injuries: DE Nic Clemons bruised his left knee, he will be re-evaluated tomorrow but it is not expected to be a a serious injury..

TE Robert Johnson mildly sprained his ankle, he did return however to continue the scrimmage..

RB Ladell Betts was suffering from a sore hamstring and did not participate..

CB Carlos Rogers was held out after suffering from back spasms late this past week, he is expected back at practice on Monday.. DT Anthony Montogmery suffered a mild hamstring pull.. S Curry Burns also suffered a hamstring injury..
WR David Patten did not participate in the scrimmage, he is expected to practice for the first time in camp on Monday...

47,258 people attended the scrimmage with the Ravens.. Mark Brunnell and the starting O-line did not participate at all in 11-11 drills, but were prominent figures during the 7-7 work.. The offense used little motion, a far departure form the practice regimen we've seen at the camp.. This was vanilla to the extreme..
Al Saunders was not on the field for the scrimmage, instead watching from above, obviously the plays were scripted for each drive.. Joe Gibbs did however spend time behind the huddle during a couple of 11-11 series..

Marcus Washington intercepted a Ravens pass and scored a TD during the scirmmage.. Sean Taylor had the hit of the day popping Mike Anderson...

The right side of the offensive line was interchangable, but the left side featuring G Ike Ndwuke and T Jim Molinaro played all the 11-11 snaps confimring their spots as the top two back-ups at this point...
Todd Collins was the first quarterback to take reps after Mark Brunnell during 7-7, but Jason Campbell was the first to take snaps during 11-11 and took the lions share of those..

K John Hall missed 2-3 field goal attempts, wide from 46 and 47 yards.. but Hall's distance was obviously back easily hitting the net on both misses..

The Skins did not use Antawn Randle El on punt returns nor Betts of James Thrash on kick returns.. In the punting portion, Derrick Frost connected on two solid kicks, Aussie David Lonie shanked his two punts.. John Hall did not perform kick off, that was taken by other kicker Tyler Jones..

Joe Gibbs actually took questions from the Fed Ex Fans during his address at the stadium following the scrimmage..

The team has the day off on Sunday..
