Washington Redskins Morning Clips: 7/23

A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, July 23, 2013.

--With the news breaking yesterday that quarterback Robert Griffin III has been cleared to participate in training camp, how exactly will the second-year signal-caller be eased into the swing of things?

--Although all signs point to RG3 being ready for the opener against Philadelphia, incumbent backup Kirk Cousins can still benefit from his role on the team.

--Aside from Griffin III, linebacker Brian Orakpo is one of the Redskins' most important pieces returning from an injury. Two insiders debate on if he can come up big in the last year of his current contract. The team is reportedly intent on signing the two-time Pro Bowler to an extension.

--When he is healthy, what is exactly is Orakpo's on-field impact? One local writer provides his thoughts.

--With that, here are two final breakdowns of both the outside and inside linebacking corps as well as the men charged with keepings blockers off of them, the defensive line.

--On the opposite side of the trenches, another preview of the offensive line.

--Safety Reed Doughty is a beloved veteran in Washington. With the addition of young talent in this year's secondary, he will be battling for his own spot on the team; a challenge he has overcome before.

--According to one analyst, incumbent starter Tyler Polumbus could encounter strong competition for the spot at right tackle.

--Following the news that Robert Griffin III has been cleared to practice, it is now being reported that he will not see action in any preseason games.

--Considering Robert Griffin III's speedy recovery, he is beginning to draw comparisons to another NFL star who had a spectacular season coming off a torn ACL. His swift return has also encouraged an aspiring young rookie who suffered a devastating injury last season in college. Griffin III’s words were the motivation he needed to get better.

--For Redskins fans living Northern Virginia wanting to travel to Richmond, there will now be a luxury shuttle service offered, courtesy of two Redskins alum

--One Richmond reporter gives an overview of the Redskins' name change debate and urges all to respect the outcome. .
