The defensive line reserves destroyed the backup offensive line on consecutive plays during goal-line drills. DLs Chris Baker, Darrion Scott and Doug Worthington re-established the line of scrimmage four yards back against C Erik Cook, G Josh LeRibeus and others. Baker got under Cook’s pads, pancaked him and then stood over him to taunt him. It was domination.

Baker has flashed against the Redskins’ reserves. It’s time to see him against better competition.


C Will Montgomery snapped a low shotgun snap that QB Robert Griffin had to catch at his shins. It wasn’t Montgomery’s first errant or slow shotgun snap of camp, either. This was an issue last season, as well.


The unintentional comedic highlight of practice: QB Kirk Cousins running the option from the Redskins’ own 1-yard line. He pitched to the running back (whose identity escaped me because I was in such disbelief), but OLB Chris Wilson tackled him for a safety. Here’s thinking Cousins will never run the option in a game.


The best hit goes to FB Dorson Boyce who plowed ILB Lorenzo Alexander after a short reception. Alexander tried to wrap Boyce up, but Boyce bulldozed through and ran at least another 50 yards before being chased down. Boyce hasn’t impressed as a blocker, but he showed great power on that play.
