SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS

• Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth got in Jason Campbell’s face on consecutive snaps during morning 11-on-11 drills, stuffing the quarterback for a sack on the first one and allowing rookie Brian Orakpo to come from behind and knock the ball from Campbell’s grasp on the second one.

• Campbell’s morning also included being knocked to the ground during the wacky drills when coach Jim Zorn has his quarterbacks smack each other with massive blocking pads to give them the feel of the pocket collapsing.

• Defensive tackle Kedric Golston got into it with an offensive lineman during the afternoon session. When Mike Sellers intervened, Golston went after him. Sellers, restrained by a teammate, tore off his helmet in disgust. “Somebody felt they got held and the other guy felt he wasn’t holding, and they threw a couple of blows, but they love each other,” Zorn said.

• Receiver Malcolm Kelly’s fine start to camp continued with the catch of the day, a tumbling grab against double coverage in the morning session.

FOUR DOWNS

WITH TE TODD YODER

1. On his role amid the potential emergence of Fred Davis: “I kind of think it will be the same role as in the past - play on special teams and be a good backup and be able to play tight end, fullback and wherever they need me to play.”

2. On where his career was going when he signed with the Redskins in 2006 after being released by Jacksonville: “Honestly, I didn’t know. I didn’t know if it was the end. I didn’t know if I would bounce back and get on somewhere else. It’s worked out for me. Anytime you can come to a place and feel like a part of a family, it’s been great for me.”

3. On what position his wife, who played lacrosse and tried women’s pro football in 2002, would play: “She would have to be Clinton Portis because she was a running back.”

4. On how often he wears the Super Bowl ring he won with Tampa Bay: “The last time I wore it was at a dinner we had down in Florida maybe a month or so ago, and I keep it in my gun safe. I don’t really wear it a lot — just on special occasions where I’m with people who want to see it or with people who haven’t seen it before.”
