ASHBURN Doug Williams Jersey , Va. (AP)As Josh Norman’s eyes darted back and forth, they kept going back to the TV showing NFL games unfolding in real time. Minutes after a rare Sunday afternoon practice wrapped up, the Washington Redskins cornerback couldn’t help but marvel at another turnover the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles forced in their rout of the Chicago Bears. ”They got another little turnover?” Norman said. ”Man. Our division’s so hard, but it’s OK. I’ll tell you what, our division’s so hard.” The bruised and battered Redskins aren’t catching the 10-1 Eagles, though their challenge is made even harder by a wacky schedule. As much of the rest of the NFL was playing games, the Redskins practiced in preparation for their second half of back-to-back Thursday night games when they visit the Dallas Cowboys. ”It’s kind of tough because this typically is a day you’re playing, but you’re out there full-tilt practicing, hitting hard and stuff like that,” defensive lineman Ziggy Hood said. ”Coach (Jay Gruden), he took care of us, making sure that everybody’s getting their work in, but he didn’t want to put too much strain on (our) bodies.” The strain is already there for Washington Womens Dwayne Haskins Jersey , which has 15 players on injured reserve, including top two running backs Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson. The Redskins (5-6) are hoping to get a few injured players back to face Dallas, though playing three games in 12 days is not much help. Left tackle Trent Williams (knee), tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) and safety Montae Nicholson (concussion) were among the players who didn’t practice Sunday. Gruden said Reed, who has missed four games in a row, is ”doing better,” but his is one of more than a dozen ailments bad enough to get listed on the injury report last week. ”Everybody’s hurt, banged up,” said linebacker Zach Brown, who has been listed with back, foot and Achilles tendon injuries. ”You got to take care of your body. You just can’t do a lot of stuff. You’ve got to rest, get massages, treatment Dwayne Haskins Jersey White , ice. You’ve got to just do stuff to try to get your body right for Thursday. Even on Thursday you’re still going to be sore a lot.” Norman couldn’t remember a previous Thursday to Thursday situation in his six-year NFL career. The Cowboys did it last year at this time, so coach Jason Garrett has a feel for the tempo of the week. ”You just kind of get yourself locked in,” Garrett said by conference call Sunday. ”Thursday to Thursday actually is the normal work week, so you can kind of get back into the flow of things. Today is Wednesday for us. You kind of get yourself on that body clock and just move forward.” Redskins players strapped the pads for practice for the first time in a while as everyone tried to trick themselves into thinking it was the middle of a normal week. In light of the schedule crunch, Gruden shortened practice and said it wasn’t the most energetic gathering of professional football players. That was expected. ”It was more about getting our pads back on a little bit early in the practice, getting our fundamentals down, taking a look at some of these new guys who we haven’t seen a whole lot, getting some work in,” Gruden said. ”We got our work in. It was more of a mental day. The physical part of it was pretty good. These guys are a little worn out right now.” Even with all the injuries, Washington still has chance, albeit a long shot, to make the playoffs. Norman went so far as to call it a blessing – one that would’ve been even better had the Redskins not blown a late lead at New Orleans in Week 11. ”It’s a very humbling experience since the fact of losing all those guys and we’re still in the thick of things,” Norman said. ”You take away all the dust and the smoke and everything else that people really say about this team and you see what type of fighters and guys we get off the street and come in and play and still win games Dwayne Haskins Washington Redskins Jersey , it’s pretty great. It’s a pretty amazing, remarkable feat.” — Germaine Pratt, LBSchool: NC State | Conference: ACCCollege Experience: RS Senior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-2 / 240 lbsProjected Draft Status: 2nd or 3rd RoundNFL Comparison: Raekwon McMillanCollege StatisticsPlayer OverviewGermaine Pratt was a wide receiver and safety coming out of high school when he was ranked 4-stars by recruiting boards. Pratt decided to stay close to home and chose NC State over other offers from Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Virginia just to name a few. Pratt started his career at free safety and primarily contributed on special teams his first two years. Pratt was given a redshirt in 2016 due to recovery from shoulder surgery he was also converted to linebacker. That was a good decision. Pratt has been one of the best linebackers in the ACC and arguably in college football. He has produced nicely at the position and teams ought to be intrigued by his blend of size, physicality, and athleticism. As a converted safety he’s one of the best in the class as far as speed. Pratt showed off his speed at the Senior Bowl but will need to show off his movement and other skills at the combine to make a run up the board. If he can show that he has more flexibility and fluidity than previously thought he could go early on day 2 of the draft. StrengthsGood size, athleticism, and great speed for the position. Solidly built physique and can play with some power and has some pop to his hits. Has sideline to sideline athleticism makes a lot of plays others can’t because of his athleticism. Solid as a run defender and offers some pass rush ability as well.Has some versatility as he played inside and outside linebacker at NC State.Good tackler who can wrap up and stop opponents in their tracks.Looks pretty good in coverage moves well in space. WeaknessesOffers little resistance to offensive linemen blocking him. Can get washed out of plays pretty easily. Looked like he has close to zero moves to get off blocks. I’m not so sure about his instincts and read and react ability. He looks to be a bit slow in diagnosing plays but makes up a lot of ground with his speed. Thats not going to work nearly as well in the NFL.Has a bit of stiffness in his lower half would be big if he could show that he cleaned in up in offseason work otherwise he’ll probably be nicked for not ideal fluidity and change of direction ability. Would like him to have a bit more awareness as perhaps related to his instincts. In his hesitation or diagnosis its almost like he loses some urgency as he waits for the ball to come to him. This is especially evident when he’s rushing the QB. He seems to run into blocks rather than avoid them.Let’s see his work:More Germain Pratte videosHow He Would Fit On The Redskins?Pratt certainly is an intriguing option for the Redskins on day 2 of the draft. His athleticism is what the team has needed and the fandom has been craving for for a few years now. The Redskins ILB position is still in flux right now. Regardless of what Bruce Allen says there still is a chance Reuben Foster could be suspended for some period of time by the NFL not to mention the probability of Foster making a mistake again. Mason Foster should not be brought back for obvious reasons and the Redskins may not bring back Zach Brown as there seems to be some tension between him and the team. It would be a wise investment in the position to draft a player like Pratt on day 2 if they do not look to the position in the 1st rounds. Pratt has his issues but by and large he is fundamentally solid and is a well rounded player. He could start right away in this defense and has the skill set to remain on the field in all situations. Pratt probably would be the most athletic linebacker on the team and could definitely help the Redskins in the run game and in coverage. As he develops I expect him to be able to diagnose things a bit quicker (remember he is a converted safety). I think his potential is quite high and I would love to have him on the team.
