August 25-- Skins and Ravens get rained out

The Redskins-Ravens pre-season game was cancelled just a few minutes into the 3rd quarter after a second major electrical storm came through Landover.. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that because of the threat to the spectators and the players, the league deemed the situation unplayable.. The game was postponed for over an hour due to a wild storm that came through about a half hour before the scheduled 8:07 PM kickoff.. Lights in the stadium went out for a period of time. The crowd that was assembled was asked to leave their seats and take cover in the concourse. So the teams left the field and they waited it out..
At approximately 8:45, the teams came back and started a quick 20 minute re-warmup and kicked off around 9:10PM..

CB Shawn Springs was held out with a minor achilles injury.. he was dressed to go, but the trainers felt it better to hold him out due to the slick conditions and the delays.. RB Rock Cartwright was also held out for similar reasons.. He strained his hamstring prior to the Pittsburgh game.. Held out tonight as well, RB Clinton Portis (knee), QB Jason Campbell (knee) although he did take his most strenuous work since injuring his knee last week during pre-game warmups.. Joe Gibbs said he believes Campbell will play at Jax in the final pre-season game..
T Chris Samuels (knee), Newly acquired LB Randall Godfrey and G Pete Kendall did not play.. LB Marcus Washington (elbow) was out as well..

The Skins offense was lacking a consistent run attack for the 3rd straight game (all be it for a half tonight).. The team's lone touchdown came on a defensive score on the first defensive play of the second half.. Pierson Prioleau and Anthony Trucks converged on Kyle Boller forcing a fumble that landed in the hands of LB Dallas Sartz who scored his first NFL touchdown..
Co-draft pick HB Blades played significant snaps at strong side linebacker during the first half.. He and Khary Campbell shared the role in place of the injured Marcus Washington.. CFL pick up Chris Wilson was used as a pass rush specialist on third downs in the role Marcus would be playing.. Cornelious Griffin started at DT alongside Anthony Montgomery, a shoft from the Kedric Golston/Joe Salave'a duo of the past week..

Todd Collins first pass was a 40 yard play to Santana Moss down the left sideline.. The Skins only managed two field goals rom the starting offensive unit and went 0-6 on third downs.. Mark Brunell only had one series (a 3 and out) before the game was cancelled.. Brunell will be the first quarterback off the bench in Jacksonville whether that be as starter or after Jason Campbell plays..

Injuries: RB Derrick Blaylock (heel), WR Jason McAddeley (hamstring)

What a trainwreck!!

I didn't know there was such a thing as a "minor Achilles injury."
