In Memoriam: Armstrong’s Yellow Jersey

One of the things I looked forward to the most when heading out for the Redskins’ afternoon training camp practices in recent days was discovering what Anthony Armstrong had put on his yellow “no-contact” jersey.

Well, Tuesday’s practice signified the end of training camp, so that pipe dream is over. But it doesn’t mean we can’t look back at the wide receiver’s antics with a glorious photo gallery.

Armstrong talked about the reason why he chose to alter his football fashion after Tuesday’s practice.

“It’s a way to break the monotony,” he said. “You get into late into training camp, it’s like groundhog day. And you don’t really know what day of the week it is. I’m just in there trying to be a little light and entertainment, for the guys that come out there. They’re going to dawn me with this yellow jersey, I might as well have a little fun with it and make a few guys laugh while I’m out here.”

Now, the reason Armstrong was wearing the yellow jersey — which is typically worn by the Redskins’ quarterbacks at practice — was not good. He injured his shoulder in practice last week and, while he recovered, was ordered to wear the non-contact jersey to avoid further damage.

Mystery Man Dons Questionable Jersey

By James Ho

Redskins’ fans know wide receiver Anthony Armstrong as one of the team’s top playmakers, but yesterday Armstrong had himself a bit of an identity crisis.

During Monday’s training camp practice, Armstrong came out sporting a gold non-contact practice jersey – usually worn by quarterbacks– instead of his usual white #13 jersey.

The jersey, however, didn’t have a number printed on it, so Armstrong grabbed a roll of athletic tape and improvised.

Griffin III Wants To Know ‘Why?’

Posted by Andrew Walker on July 10, 2012 – 2:27 pm

The “who,” “what,” “when,” “where,” and “how” are apparently on the back-burner for Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III.

But it’s the “why?” that has the rookie quarterback curious.

Video: Armstrong Works On Golf Game

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 7, 2012 – 5:16 pm

Anthony Armstrong was having a good time on the golf course Monday afternoon.

With the opportunity to help contribute to a great cause, the third-year Redskins receiver also found himself in the middle of a lively group at Monday’s seventh annual Leukemia Golf Classic at the Trump National Golf Club.

Armstrong also shared his strategy when approaching any shot — and it’s apparently not as difficult as it’s made out to be.

Seventh Annual Leukemia Golf Classic Underway

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 7, 2012 – 11:06 am

A collection of Redskins players, coaches and team officials are hitting the links today for a good cause.

The seventh annual Leukemia Golf Classic – hosted for a second straight year by Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo – is set to tee off today at 11 a.m. at the Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va.

The event – started in 2006 by then-Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell – serves as a fundraiser for the National Capital Area Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and has raised closed to $885,000 since its inception.

Redskins wide receiver Anthony Armstrong showed up for the event dawning a bright gold polo – per the course rules, I’m sure.

Armstrong  said he’s gunning for first place.

“I’m going to be playing like the old Tiger (Woods),” he said with a laugh.

Happy ‘Golden Birthday’ To Jarvis Jenkins

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 24, 2012 – 3:03 pm

What would a birthday be without a picture of a teammate hug? (FYI: This photo was taken last August.)

Things have been awfully serious on the blog recently, and it’s time to freshen things up.  Fortunately, defensive end Jarvis Jenkins was kind enough to be born 24 years ago today, and is celebrating his one and only “golden birthday.”

Fastest Redskins Debate, Version 2.012

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 2, 2012 – 5:14 pm

During the darkest hours of last offseason’s lockout, Redskins receivers Anthony Armstrong and Brandon Banks livened up the debate with a playful Twitter war of who would be faster in a foot race.

While the race was never consummated (due to concerns of injuries), the merit of each competitor was debated back and forth, 140 characters at a time.  Banks is traditionally thought of as the team’s speedster, but special teams coordinator Danny Smith has clocked Armstrong at a sub-4.2 on kickoff coverage.

Whichever man is faster, we may never know–but other Redskins receivers threw their hats in the ring this afternoon, declaring their shot at the title of ‘The Fastest Redskin.’

Here’s a Twitter recap between Brandon Banks (@SpeedyBanks16), Niles Paul (@Niles_Paul) and Terrence Austin (@Terrence_Austin), with their respective merits: Read more »

Redskins Dunk, Dougie In Basketball Game

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 2, 2012 – 11:42 am

Friday night was the latest installment of the fabled ‘Battle of the Beltway,’ pitting the Redskins against their bitter rival Ravens in a Battle Royale for the ages.

Media hype aside, it was a fun-filled celebrity basketball game at Stafford High School, with proceeds benefiting Anthony Armstrong’s Lucky 13 Foundation and the Ravens’ Torrey Smith Foundation.  Redskins starpower was on high for the event, as current Redskins Armstrong, Lorenzo Alexander, Brandon Banks, Josh Wilson, Niles Paul, Aldrick Robinson, Terrence Austin, Joshua Morgan, and Markus White joined local radio personalities and former Redskins Chris Wilson and Darrell Green on the court.

While the question on everyone’s mind had to do with hoop dreams, the evening was actually kicked off with a contest to determine which team was better suited to “Teach Me How To Dougie.” Admire: Read more »
