Latest Niles Paul Items
LaRon Landry's practice uniform since training camp began has included a visor instead of a helmet. That was supposed to change Sunday, but it didn't.
My observations, analysis and conclusions about the Washington Redskins' offense after re-watching their 16-3 preseason victory over the Indianapolis Colts using the TV broadcast:
This isn't just the most hurried training camp in NFL history, it's also the scariest. Why? Because when cuts are finally made, coaches will be deciding the fate of players — and, perhaps, franchises — based on only partial information.
As the Miami Dolphins' all-time leader in receiving yardage, No. 2 in receptions and No. 3 in receiving touchdowns, Mark Duper knows about playing the position. So when some of Leonard Hankerson's uncles learned that their employer was a close friend of Duper's, they asked if the three-time Pro Bowler would tutor the young wideout, a rising junior at Miami.
Mike Shanahan didn't like what he saw Wednesday morning as the Washington Redskins went through position drills.

Shanahan was displeased enough to stop the drill and correct the mistake.
Ryan Kerrigan's first practice with the Washington Redskins will forever carry an asterisk.

No coaches were present; only veterans guiding him through the playbook.
No. 16 Nebraska will be without senior wide receiver and kick returner Niles Paul as it tries to win the Big 12 North title.
Bo Pelini isn't one to backtrack.
The Big 12 has suspended Nebraska linebacker Eric Martin for Saturday's game against Missouri for a hit he put on Oklahoma State's Andrew Hudson.
