The Week That Was: What can Davis and Garçon do together?

RICHMOND—Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, August 4, four days before the Redskins play the Titans in their preseason opener.

That Was the Week That Was

—The Redskins have just three full practices next week and so don’t look for any major changes to what Robert Griffin III does. Mike Shanahan said that the second phase of the team’s plan for RG3’s practice activities would not kick in until the Monday after the Tennessee preseason game. That day is the start of the final week of training camp in Richmond. The good folks in the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia might get a peek at RG3 running in 11 on 11 drills. Or they might not. Shanahan wouldn’t say one way or the other yesterday.

—I’ve written off Santana Moss more than once and he usually proves me wrong. I didn’t write him off this year and, hey, it looks like I’ll be right. The one-handed catch he made last week (you can see the picture here) was the play of camp so far. And his camp has been more than one spectacular play; he has been catching virtually everything throw in his direction the whole time. I’m not sure what I’ll be saying about Moss next year when his contract is up but right now the call is for a lot of key plays from No. 89 in 2013.

—Fred Davis says he’s pain free about nine and a half months after surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon. Pierre Garçon has been doing well after choosing to rehab the toe injury that cost him six games last year rather than a surgical procedure that had no track record of results. And both of them talk of being able to help each other as a Mr. Inside (Davis) and Mr. Outside (Garçon) combo. It will be interesting to see what the two can do together. By the time Garçon had regained his form last year after dealing with the toe injury that he suffered in the first quarter of the season opener, Davis was on the shelf with his injury.

    I love reading your blog and have been years. I know everybody wants to know how RGIII is doing in camp along with other players progress, but i would also like to know how Kirk cousins is doing. Let’s not forget how important he is to the redskins. If Griffin goes down again we are going to be depending on him to get the job done. Tell me does he seem to have a grasp on the offensive scheme how is his performance, passes, etc, etc.
