Linebacker and special teams captain Adam Hayward suffered a season-ending right leg injury Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. But on Wednesday, his number remained on the practice field.
In an act of solidarity, fellow inside linebacker and good friend Will Compton shed his personal No. 51 for Hayward’s No.55 during the Washington Redskins’ first practice since coming back to Loudoun County, Va.
11 games into his first full season, Compton has totaled 20 tackles. He has valued Hayward’s presence on the field and developed a strong relationship—and similar facial hair styles– with him, as evidenced in a couple of Instagram photos together.

Several Washington Redskins players traded in their shoulder pads for aprons and name tags Monday evening.
Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan hosted his second-annual Blitz For The Better Celebrity Waiter Night at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Arlington, Va., where Kerrigan and nine of his teammates spent a couple hours serving hors d’oeuvres and mingling with fans — and all for a great cause.
Kerrigan started his Blitz For The Better foundation last year to provide opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need in the Washington, D.C. area — particularly for children who have serious illnesses, special needs or are physically challenged.

The free agent linebacker arrived at Redskins Park, completed a physical and signed his contract with his second NFL franchise. The 2014 season will be his eighth in professional football, but 10 years ago he almost gave up the game.
