Washington receiver Darnerien McCants has always been a crowd-pleaser, with eight touchdowns in 53 career catches. He received a standing ovation yesterday — understandable considering there wasn’t anywhere for the crowd to sit.
McCants snared a pass and toed the sideline for an impressive footwork move. That wasn’t enough, though. He gave the crowd a thumbs up and waved for support. Fans roared their approval.
Linebacker LaVar Arrington also was a crowd favorite despite merely walking past en route to watching practice from the far side of the field. The big name on everyone’s lips was rookie running back Nehemiah Broughton just because they could yell “Nemo” every time he touched the ball.
One night only
Quarterback Jason Campbell was forced to sing a Boyz II Men tune for veterans at dinner Tuesday after holding out for the first day of camp. The traditional rookie hazing brought a few boos, but Campbell finished with zest.
“It was only three or four verses,” Campbell said. “Once I got a groove on, they started clapping along. I think I passed the test.”
Running back Clinton Portis saw limited snaps after missing Wednesday night’s practice with a swollen knee. Portis’ first carry in seven-on-sevens was met with a sound thud by linebacker Lemar Marshall.
Meanwhile, cornerback Walt Harris said he might practice today after missing four days with a pulled quad muscle. Defensive tackle Brandon Noble (knee infection) should return next week.
Owner Dan Snyder attended his first practice. Clad in a white Redskins polo shirt, Snyder watched from midfield away from the crowd.
