Jim Zorn Training Camp Media Session

On Fan Appreciation Day:

"It's a big deal for us. The tradition here is the fans love the Washington Redskins. They come into our home basically, and we are inviting everyone in. We hope it's a big crowd. The big problem is there is one way in and one way out so there is traffic. Everybody has to be patient and enjoy the day. We are going to have a pretty good show, but it is going to be fast. You may not see the stars, but you are going to see a lot of great veterans and a lot of good rookies trying to make this football team. It will be spirited"

On the number of plays he expects to run tomorrow:

"I said 25 or 30 plays last year and we ended up with 68. I am going to try and run 40 plays on offense and maybe another 16 plays. I am keeping the red zone pretty much a script. We are going to just work it down; we are not going to play it out so that will limit the reps. I think each guy should get 15 to 20 reps if they are playing a whole series."

On punter Hunter Smith:

"I have a tremendous comfort zone with Hunter. We are going to punt tomorrow in non live situations. We are going to kick field goals and extra points. Each kicker will have a chance to do that. We are going to kick both kickers in the games in preseason."

On guard/tackle Chad Reinhart:

"I see a guy that came very prepared to this training camp. He is much more confident in what he is doing on the line of scrimmage. He knows his assignment. He is in great shape. He has changed his body strength and is competing very hard for a starting position."

On running back Dominique Dorsey:

"We have not been able to test Dominique Dorsey yet. He can run around the end and he can catch punts. We got to wait to see what he can do in a live situation. That is partly the reason we are going to scrimmage. You will see him show up in the game as well."

On linebacker Cody Glenn:

"He is doing a great job. We have got several linebackers now. We have a bigger pool of core special team members and he would certainly be one of those. He is on his way. He can run and all of those linebackers look like they are going to be pretty good."
