It’s three hours before the Redskins’ second practice of the day and according to the Weather Channel’s website, the temperature in Leesburg is 97 degrees and the heat index is 114 degrees. Translation: It’s miserable to be outside. Players are losing between four and seven pounds per practice session.

The Redskins worked for nearly two hours in full pads this morning, starting at 8:30 a.m. Tight end Mike Sellers, slowed yesterday by cramps, returned to the field. Receiver David Patten (ill) and defensive tackle Joe Salave’a (mother’s death) were not at practice.

The player that has caught my eye: Quarterback Jason Campbell. The kid’s got a strong arm, rarely underthrows a receiver and is making good decisions. It will be interesting to see him during the preseason games because the Redskins’ best move is making him the starter in 2007.
