Jim Zorn has finished his day-after-game press conference at Redskin Park, a quick 13-minute session that could have stretched longer because there were a few more questions everybody wanted to ask (and not all of them negative, either).

Some news and notes:


*Zorn said the Redskins’ youngsters got an eye-opener playing against the Ravens.

“This was the first game,” he said. “That was the first test. It was a difficult test for some of these guys. Some failed. Some came through with flying colors. Some now need to rise up.”

*On the injury front, DL Lorenzo Alexander’s pulled oblique was the most painful of the hurts. RT Scott Burley’s knee strain turned into a quad strain after further evaluation. Other injuries were LB Cody Glenn (rib), TE Fred Davis (shoulder) and RT Mike Williams (abdominal).

*Zorn singled out CB DeAngelo Hall and SLB Brian Orakpo on defense and QB Jason Campbell and the first unit line on offense has having solid games.

*Zorn was perturbed by the amount of slipping going on.

“One of the things that irriates me is slipping,” he said. “We can’t slip. We had some holes open and slipped trying to get through them or slipped trying to block. That’s one thing we can control and we didn’t control that ourselves.”

*The Redskins return to the field Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and then special teams at 2 p.m. The next full-squad double session is Sunday.
