Robert Griffin III: three sacks, no touchdowns.
The left tackle that practiced with the Washington Redskins' first-string offense on Saturday afternoon was planning for his retirement two weeks ago. The left guard was a rookie. So was the right guard. And he practiced next to a right tackle who played with the second string all offseason.
There's a strong chance quarterback Robert Griffin III will make his Washington Redskins preseason debut Thursday night without half of the first-stringers on offense.
Now that right tackle Jammal Brown's availability for the 2012 season is in doubt, the bill on the five-year, $27.5 million contract the Redskins gave him in July 2011 seems close to coming due.
Things got pretty rough for the Washington Redskins' offensive line last season. If one more guy had gotten hurt or suspended, the team might have held a seance and tried to contact the spirit of Turk Edwards.
Right tackle Jammal Brown will not have surgery on either of his hips, but he is out indefinitely as he tries to overcome the pain that has sidelined him for the first six practices of training camp, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday.
Already dealing with an uncertain situation at right tackle with Jammal Brown, the Washington Redskins became thinner along the offensive line, at least in the short term, after left guard Kory Lichtensteiger had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday.
Trent Williams and Maurice Hurt were the last two Washington Redskins off the indoor practice field Saturday afternoon. While most of their teammates headed to lunch, and a few stragglers spoke to reporters, Williams tutored Hurt about squaring his shoulders to pass-rushing defenders and absorbing contact in the chest.
One of the keys to quarterback Robert Griffin III's success in his rookie season with the Washington Redskins is an offensive line that should keep him healthy and off the ground more often than not. On Day 1 of training camp, that line took a significant hit.
