A couple of receivers are hot -- and it has nothing to do with the weather; one quarterback is not.…
Training Camp Report: August 6
Guard trouble: Saturday could provide some trouble for the Redskins if only because of the injuries along the offensive line. The Redskins have liked what Stephon Heyer has done, but we're not going to go overboard. He has looked good in practice, but in the scrimmage it seemed to us that he too often stood upright. That will get him in trouble against starters.
Also, he'll be next to a guy making his first start at left guard. Not everone is convinced that Todd Wade will make a successful transition. And his backup right now is Jason Fabini, who has not looked good in practice and also was a tackle. Good luck, Jason.
Welcome sight: At least guard Randy Thomas returned and participated in full-team work for the first time. He definitely wants to play against the Titans.
Ouch: Running back Ladell Betts jammed his neck after a collision with linebacker Marcus Washington. ''We were doing a blitz pickup and all of a sudden it turned into a bull-rush drill,'' Betts said. And he lost. He'll get X-rays on his neck, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious.
First team: Safety LaRon Landry spent most of the full-team drills with the starting unit, ahead of Pierson Prioleau. Landry has not looked lost on the field; his big complaint is that he sometimes tries too hard to make plays and gets in trouble. But he more often than not seems to be in the right place.
Injury update: Mike Sellers suffered a bone bruise in his knee, but is OK. Brandon Lloyd did not practice again because of shin splints. Receiver Mike Espy was limited because of his knee injury. It's too bad for the kid; he's missing a golden opportunity.
Weather index: It was hot today. Frickin' hot. Tomorrow's forecast? Real frickin hot.
Mason man: We've liked running back Marcus Mason from the start and he showed a little something against Baltimore. The more the Redskins see, the more they like. That's not to say he'll win a roster spot, but he's becoming a strong practice squad candidate.
''Marcus has been able to pick things up well,'' said running backs coach Earnest Byner. ''He showed promise early. He's got good feet, good vision, good feel for the holes. He needs some developing, but he has a chance.''
