THURSDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS

- Rain fell throughout the morning practice, making the field slippery. Jason Campbell’s best pass was to receiver Santana Moss, who went between two defenders before making the catch and slipping. Moss sat out the rest of the practice and afternoon drills as a precaution but said the injury wasn’t serious.

- The morning practice marked the first time that NFL officials were present. One referee was involved in the strangest sight of the day: While the offense took reps, the umpire held a child dressed in Redskins gear.

- During morning drills, receiver Marques Hagans ran the wrong route. Furious, coach Jim Zorn approached Hagans afterward - and still looked unhappy several plays later.

FOUR DOWNS

WITH K DAVE RAYNER

1. On the kicking schedule during training camp: “We’ve only kicked one time with the team. I think we are kicking in the scrimmage on Saturday. It kind of depends on what the coaches say. We’re not kicking a whole lot.”

2. On his past athletic experience: “I played soccer from when I was 5 until when I was a senior in high school.”

3. On the role of the holder: “It is important to the whole operation to get a good snap and a good hold. That way, you get a better kick.”

4. On what the special teams players talk about during practice: “Whatever we want to. We do a lot of football talk, but there’s a lot of downtime where we just talk to talk.”
