Redskins rookie report
Rookie report: A look at how the rookies have fared entering the preseason schedule.
1. LB Ryan Kerrigan. You can see his speed when heís able to just play without thinking; in other words, when heís rushing. Saw him chase the quarterback from the backside Wednesday and looked good. But he has a ways to go to become a full-time player. Kerrigan plays slower in coverage because heís still thinking. He also needs to learn how to rush from a two-point stance. One difference: In college, he loved using his hands on a rush (as did Andre Carter). It takes time to learn how to use them effectively out of a two-point stance. And he must learn to stay consistently low. But heís clearly smart and that helps.
On pace for: Whether itís the first game of the season or soon thereafter, he will start.
