Washington Redskins tackle Tyler Polumbus, on behalf of his charity group the TKO Foundation, made a special visit with offensive linemen Josh LeRibeus and Tom Compton to the Pediatric Oncology Unit at Fairfax Hospital Monday morning.

Supporting Amphora’s Bakery Charitable Organization, “Cakes Against Cancer,” the linemen visited with several pediatric cancer patients for the second-annual Gingerbread Workshop, building and decorating the cookie houses and spending time with many children who won’t get to spend their holidays at home.

After getting help from the kids, the linemen asked everyone to judge their gingerbread houses. Compton took first place, Polumbus second and LeRibeus third.

Both DeSean Jackson and Rashad Ross have blazing speed on the field, but just how fast are they on the race track?

While we don’t know the exact answer to that — at least yet — we do know that the two were at the indoor go-kart track at Allsports Grand Prix in Sterling, Va.

This isn’t the first time a pair of Redskins have buckled up the seat belt there, as wide receiver Pierre Garcon posted on his Instagram last weekend a photo of running back Alfred Morris and he there:

Guess who???

Redskins Participate In Pros vs. GI Joes

Social Recap: Redskins Charitable Foundation Hosts Skins Santa Shoppe

The Washington Redskins cafeteria turned into a temporary game room Monday morning, as active duty members serving overseas connected over Skype and Xbox with several Redskins to play video games as part of Pros vs. Joes.

Hosted by Redskins Salute, Pros vs. GI Joes — presented by Xbox and EA Sports– was founded by Greg Zinone seven years ago and has become a recurring event within the sports community. Connected over the internet, athletes play video games in the United States alongside family members and teammates, able to see their military members on television as they battle online.

Linebackers Perry Riley Jr. and Will Compton, defensive lineman Chris Baker, offensive tackle Trent Williams, long snapper Nick Sundberg and kicker Kai Forbath competed with active duty stationed at home and at Wounded Warriors Centers in Germany and Afghanistan.

“You see it with the troops, you see it’s a big thing for them,” Zinone said. “Over there in the Wounded Warriors Center, they sit down and see one of these athletes, it’s just big. Guys are in the Afghanistan, back and forth, they come down, all of a sudden they’re playing these athletes.”

“It’s pretty cool playing a video game of what they do,” said Compton. “It means a lot. We’re able to do this because of them. We’re very thankful.”

Social Recap: Redskins Charitable Foundation Hosts Skins Santa Shoppe

Instead of being home to 53 Washington Redskins like it usually is on gamedays, the locker room at FedExField on Tuesday was transformed into a toyshop, where students from 20 Washington, D.C., area schools were able to select from thousands of toys to take home for their own this holiday season.

As the kids scanned through all of the different options, they were joined by Tanya Snyder – wife of owner Dan Snyder – Redskins players, WOW Wives and Marines.

The players in attendance were running back Alfred Morris, fullback Darrel Young, tight ends Niles Paul, Je’Ron Hamm and Chase Dixon, offensive lineman Tevita Stevens, linebackers Trent Murphy and Jackson Jeffcoat, cornerback Kenny Okoro and safety Duke Ihenaco.

The first shift of players, including Paul and Young, got active with the kids, as they played catch with the students who picked out athletic equipment, while others like Young and Stevens helped young girls handpick their newest toys.

Below is a quick look at what happened through Twitter:
