Posted by Andrew Walker on October 26, 2012 – 5:54 pm

Remember, Redskins fans: Lorenzo Alexander isn’t just a linebacker and a special teams ace — his preferred position is “athlete.”

Alexander joined the crew of the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” this morning and talked about his role on the team, Robert Griffin III and more.

Check Out Brian Orakpo’s Surgery Scar

In his short time away from the game of football, tight end Chris Cooley joined Redskins Nation weekly for what became known as the “Cooley Report.”

Well, Cooley now has his attention in other places — he was re-signed by the Redskins on Monday — but another Redskins player with a little bit more free time on his hands could fill in his place in front of the cameras.

Outside Brian Orakpo, who suffered a season-ending pectoral injury Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams, joined Larry Michael for what he called the “‘Rak Report.” Whether or not it becomes a weekly thing is unknown at this point, but it sure is good just to see Orakpo back at the team’s facility.

Orakpo underwent surgery on his left pectoral muscle, and showed the scar to Michael on this week’s ‘Rak Report — and we’ve got the video.

Morris Named NFL Rookie Of The Week

Can we just go ahead and name the Pepsi Max NFL Rookie of the Week award the “Washington Redskins Rookie of the Week award” yet?

The league announced today that Redskins running back Alfred Morris had earned his first-career Pepsi Max NFL Rookie of the Week award. His quarterback teammate, Robert Griffin III, has already won the award three times this season.

So, by my math — and by “math,” I mean calculator — a Washington Redskins rookie has won the award about 57 percent of the time so far this season.

A huge credit goes to Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, head coach Mike Shanahan and their staff for making their 2012 draft class count to this point. Griffin III has been an absolute league-wide sensation, while Morris has simply been the best rookie running back in the NFL.

Speaking of the NFL Draft, Morris’ Rookie of the Week award puts him in elite company.

They’ve already been referred to by many national media outlets as “disturbingly ugly” and “absurd.” But I guess the Pittsburgh Steelers are taking the “I know you are, but what am I?” approach to their 80th-anniversary throwback uniforms.

Like, the Redskins, the Steelers are also celebrating their 80th year as an NFL franchise this season — and, like the Redskins, they’re doing so with commemorative set of uniforms. While the Redskins will wear their 80th Anniversary Uniforms at two home games to be determined, we’re all in for a treat when the Steelers dawn their throwbacks Sunday against the Washington Redskins at Heinz Field.

Long Snapper Sundberg Practicing Again

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 26, 2012 – 8:18 am

It’s been nearly 50 days since Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg played an entire half with a broken arm.

After receiving the welcomed news that the team had used a brand new IR designation on him that allows the Cal product to return this season, Sundberg — whose arm was placed in a heavy cast the day after the injury — had to wait for the natural healing process to work its magic before he could return to the practice fields at Redskins Park.

In those nearly seven weeks, Sundberg has gotten his 15 minutes of fame, celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness Month and even began selling shirts that documented his injury. But, more than anything, Sundberg — who remained a mainstay at the team’s facility throughout his recovery — was itching to get back onto the field and get back to snapping.

That’s exactly what happened Tuesday, as Sundberg — sans cast — returned to practice for the first time since breaking his arm Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. Sundberg said the practice sessions went well, but his arm still is not quite at the point where pain isn’t an option.
