In the NFL, an intrasquad scrimmage may be the one thing that is more meaningless than a preseason game. Yesterday, the Redskins held their first intrasquad scrimmage. It lasted 62 plays. No major injuries. Scrimmage=success, right? Well, depends on what side of the ball you’re looking at and what player. For anyone who wants to take over that right tackle position? No. Right tackle has and will continue to be a major issue for the Redskins. After releasing Jon Jansen (who had major injury issues himself), it seems like neither Stephon Heyer, Mike Williams, or Jeremy Bridges can stay healthy. Starters missing action yesterday included Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley, and Santana Moss. Albert Haynesworth and Carlos Rogers didn’t play either. For those wondering, Campbell was 8-12 for 60 yards.
