RICHMOND, Va. --'s Ryan Fowler breaks down the key plays and highlights from Day 9 of training camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center on Saturday.


-- After spectacular catches and highlight plays Saturday, Sunday included plenty of incompletions and no touchdowns during 11-on-11 drills.

-- Colt McCoy took the majority of snaps with the starting unit during the session, but Case Keenum looked to be the most productive quarterback of the afternoon. After pumping up the crowd as J.P Holtz caught a ball along the sideline without drawing an applause, Keenum went on to show an increased knowledge of the offense, completing balls to seven different receivers throughout the afternoon with Paul Richardson serving as his favorite target.

-- Josh Doctson, Kelvin Harmon, and Brian Quick all made highlight-reel catches during 1-on-1 drills. Doctson has showed a continued ability throughout camp to catch the ball at its highest point, using his 41-inch vertical to rise over defenders.

-- Rookie running back Craig Reynolds continued to show his ability as a pass catcher. He connected with Dwayne Haskins during 7-on-7 drills for what would have been a 70-yard touchdown on a swing pass out of the backfield.

Quick Hits:

--With Morgan Moses receiving a day off, Timon Parris received the bulk of reps as the starting right tackle.

--The offense took its first reps from inside their own 5-yard line moving out Sunday. As fans cheered, coaches on both sides of the ball could be heard shouting "hard count, hard count," to make sure their respective players indeed stayed onside.


-- Ryan Anderson continued to earn reps with the starting unit at outside linebacker, as Montez Sweat has been held out of practice since getting kicked in the calf during Wednesday's session. "These things sometimes take three days, four days," Gruden said of Sweat on Sunday. "I think he'll be OK for Cleveland. We'll see."

-- Undrafted free agent corner Deion Harris continued to showcase his physicality and athleticism, limiting wide receivers during red zone drills and performing especially well against bigger wideouts.

-- Jimmy Moreland has continued to work with the starting unit at corner with Quinton Dunbar receiving the day off. Moreland worked opposite Josh Norman during 11-on-11 drills, with Fabian Moreau serving as the nickel corner.

Quick Hits:

-- Landon Collins intercepted Colt McCoy for the second time in as many days during the two-minute drill. Rookie linebacker B.J. Blunt also recorded his first interception of camp, picking off a Case Keenum throw 10 yards from the end zone.

-- Throughout camp, safety Jeremy Reaves has shown quality speed and physicality in coverage and solid instincts when the ball is in the air.

Special Teams:

-- Trey Quinn, T.J. Rahming, Steven Sims Jr. and Jimmy Moreland all practiced returning punts and kicks Sunday.
