August 1PM-- Night Practice, No K/P competition

The Skins held their first night practice of camp.. Players described the session as more spirited.. The Skins continue to implement a policy of no full tackling.. Contact was as heavy as typical long full pad practices, but there has yet to be a full scrimmage-esque session..

Jon Jansen said he is very impressed by the play thus far of Stephon Heyer who continued to take the bulk of the first team snaps at LT..

The play of the night was a throw back pass from Ladell Betts to Jason Campbell who made a leaping catch between players.. Asked if he could be a reciver, Joe Gibbs said, “Uhh, No.”
CB John Eubanks had a nice 1 handed interception during 11-11 drills..

Of names to keep an eye on this summer, DL Jared Clauss who was used prominently in the 9-9 drills.. On one particular play, Clauss beat G Will Whitacker badly for a would be sack.. There figures to be an open spot for a rookie or free agent at DE.. Clauss is certainly one to watch along with undrafted rookie Alex Buzbee out of G’town..

LB Marcus Washington did participate in the night practice after resting his sore hip in the morning session..

Those who sat out of the night session: RB Clinton Portis (knee), T Chris Samuels (knee), G Randy Thomas (knee), FB Pete Schmidt (shoulder), TE Tyler Ecker (groin), WR Carl Berman (hamstring), WR Mike Espy (knee)

Asked if Danny Smith is happy with only one punter (Derrick Frost) and one kicker (Shaun Suisham) in camp right now, Joe Gibbs said “He better be happy about them, or I am going to kill him.” Gibbs said the injuries at FB and TE forced the team’s hand at making a roster move.. The curious part was removing the one bit of competition at kicker and punter.. If health returns to those positions, it is possible you will see someone come in to compete with Suisham or Frost..

OK men..
