Redskins first-string RB Ryan Torain injures hand in practice
Quarterback John Beck changed his jersey number from 3 to 12. Receiver Malcolm Kelly was glad to give up 12 and switch to 14, Beck said, because Kelly’s three seasons wearing 12 haven’t been prosperous.
Beck has worn No. 12 since a youth coach who liked Terry Bradshaw assigned him the number. He always wanted to wear No. 14 as a kid because he adored Ty Detmer, but No. 12 stuck with him through high school and college. He couldn’t wear it with Miami after the Dolphins drafted him because it’s Bob Griese’s retired number. He wore it for the Baltimore Ravens in 2009.
• Return specialist Brandon Banks sat out Wednesday because his surgically-repaired left knee was sore when he woke up. “It’s more preventative than anything,” Shanahan said.
• Free agent defensive lineman Kedric Golston re-signed with the Redskins on Wednesday afternoon. Terms were not immediately known. Golston, a five-year veteran, started all 13 games he played in last season but is expected to be a reserve this year.
• The Redskins re-signed free agent safety Reed Doughty to a three-year contract.
