Maybe the heat made a couple Redskins antsy because there were several big collisions during the 90-minute afternoon practice at the Park, a day so hot that even owner Dan Snyder ditched the shirt-and-tie for a Redskins golf shirt.

Sean Taylor thumped Clinton Portis. Lemar Marshall crunched Mike Espy, who lost his helmet on the play. Chris Clemons hit Jimmy Farris.

Aric Williams and Robert McCune had interceptions for the defense.

The Redskins have one practice tomorrow at 7 p.m. It’s open to the public.

But we’ll take this moment on the blog to offer fair warning: NOTHING MUCH HAPPENS AT PRACTICE. Very little hitting. Very few (if any) trick plays. Hardly any kickoffs and punts. So if you’re trying to get a good preview of the Redskins, Saturday at FedEx Field and a scrimmage against Baltimore is the best bet. If you’re into autographs and anything wearing burgundy-and-gold, hit the Dulles Toll Road and join us.

That’s all for today.
