Quick Camp Hits

I have some stuff going up exclusively on NFL.com's Blog Blitz powered by Sports Fan Live. I"ll link to that as soon as it comes up.

Here's my quick hits from day one of Redskins training camp.

-William Robinson started at LT in light of the absence of unsigned rookie lineman Trent Williams.

-Speaking of Williams, his deal could be coming very soon.

-Mike Williams has been placed on the reserved non-football illness list.

-Joey Galloway started opposite Santana Moss. Mike Furrey spent his time in the slot as expected and made some good plays.

-Malcolm Kelly looked smooth after he tweaked a hamstring last week in Arizona working out with Donovan McNabb. He didn't expect to participate in practice, but did despite the sloppy field conditions.

-The offense was a bit out-of-sync. McNabb missed some throws as did Rex Grossman. I would imagine it's simply a bit of rust.

-Adam Carriker and Kedric Golston were with the first team defense at DE. The depth the Redskins have at DE is fantastic. Phillip Daniels and Vonnie Holliday are the primary backups, and of course Haynesworth is expected to join them there in the mix as Ma'ake Kemoeatu appears to be the man at the all-important nose tackle position.

-Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and defensive line coach Jacob Burney both conducted a 20-30 minute workout with Haynesworth following practice so he could familiarize himself with the terminology on defense.

-Larry Johnson impressed me. Had decent speed and finished his runs. He is going to see some significant playing time this year from what I can see.

-Loved seeing new WRs coach Keenan McCardell out there. He looks like he could still play.

-DeAngelo Hall was wearing jersey #2.

I'll get the other articles linked when I can. Tomorrow night more quick hits and Andre Carter will be on the 'Skins Talk "Hot Seat."
