Pictured above, are Reed Doughty’s two children dressed up as Marvel super heroes, Captain America and Thor. Not quite as ferocious as the originals, but pretty impressive.
“Well, we did 6:30 a.m. presents, of course,” Doughty said after practice. “We’re always up by 6:30–or before 6:30–so we did presents then.”
“I’m gonna go home and play with the remote controlled cars, and maybe ride the Razor Scooter around,” Doughty continued. “He wanted a scooter, and he’s really excited for it.”
This is the same son that was born with kidney failure in 2006. He had a transplant three and one-half years ago now, and is pretty much your average 5-year-old.
“Most of it’s behind him now,” Doughty said with relief. “He’s doing phenomenal, going to preschool, excited for his birthday, and doing all of the fun stuff that 5-year-olds do. Y’know, he’s got his normal checkups and medicine, and stuff like that, but he’s doing great.”

The Redskins have unveiled two wall murals dedicated to the rich history of the football team, entitled the “Hail to the Redskins Walk.”
One mural is adjacent to the locker room on the first floor of the facilities at Redskins Park. Players cannot enter or exit the locker room without seeing life-sized pictures of Slingin’ Sammy Baugh or “The Diesel,” John Riggins, immortalized on the wall.
“It displays the storied history of this proud franchise,” said Redskins Senior Vice President, Tony Wyllie. “Anyone that walks downstairs and takes a look at it will instantly understand what this organization is all about.”
The mural magically appeared on Monday morning, and curious players have been seen pausing on their way to and from meetings, taking a closer look. Wyllie said, “Everyone from veterans to rookies have read it and studied it, and walked away proud to be a Redskin.”
An identical wall has been constructed at FedExField, and will have television screens embedded in the wall for a delightfully multimedia experience. It’s located on the club level of the stadium.
This is Part One of an eight-part series, looking at each decade of the Redskins history, as depicted on the walls.
The Redskins were born in the 1930′s, in Boston, Mass. Originally known as the Braves, the team moved to greener pastures in Washington, D.C., and became the Redskins that we all know and love.
Here are shots of the 1930′s panel on the Hail to the Redskins Walk:

Given today’s official roster cuts, it was difficult to determine who was missing from practice due to injury and who was permanently excused from practice. The team also did not need to make cuts official until after practice today, so some players suited up in the Burgundy and Gold for the last time.
Head coach Mike Shanahan is expected to clarify the situation shortly.
Here are some scenes from practice. Now that the players are removed from the heat and two-a-day’s of training camp, players are starting to look crisp going into the last preseason game. This is the last open practice before Thursday’s matchup against the Bucaneers.
Here is footage of the the receivers practicing routes below: Read more »

In relatively old news, new defensive end Stephen Bowen was interviewed by CSN’s sideline reporter, Rick ‘Doc’ Walker during the first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Doc told viewers at home that he had exorcised the demon of Dallas out of Bowen, and that he had “cleansed him of that filth.”
Check it out below if you missed it:
Stephen took it all in stride, and knows which side of the rivalry he’s on now. Read more »
