While Redskins fans living near Redskins Park in Ashburn, where the team has held its training camp for several years, are dismayed that the team has moved further south, the team has heard from plenty of people further south in Norfolk and North Carolina delighted to now live closer to the site.
Robert Griffin III's knee is still feeling fine. His ability to turn a room upside down is better than ever.
He had surgery on Jan. 9 to revise his ACL reconstruction and repair the lateral collateral ligament and medial meniscus. Doctors expect him to be ready for the Redskins' first regular season game, which is Monday, Sep. 9 at home against Philadelphia.
Americans learned that the Boston bombers initially wanted to launch their terror attack on Independence Day, and the Obama administration found itself on the defensive once again over accusations of a Benghazi cover-up.
