Perine comes up limping after big run (0:26)

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie Daron Payne's first series went about like his showings in training camp. But, typically, he's being blocked by two linemen most of the time. When he was one-on-one with a Jets' lineman, he was able to catch him off-balance and then use his strength to get inside. He has the quickness to finish off plays. He's been impressive since he arrived -- and playing with other threats such as Jonathan Allen and Ryan Kerrigan will enhance his ability.

Running back Kapri Bibbs lived for a while growing up with 23 kids in a three bedroom house in Chicago. They slept "like sardines" in twin beds or on the floor. He said he wouldn't trade his upbringing.

Josh Norman impressed by Jets' Darnold

The performance of Jets quarterback Sam Darnold in practice against the Redskins has won over cornerback Josh Norman, who said he was impressed even though he didn't want to be.

After cutting Orlando Scandrick, the Redskins truly are content rolling with the young corners they now have, multiple sources said. And if they continue to play well, there's no need for them to sign another veteran. If there's a drop-off in play or an injury, they could still look at players such as Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie, though his price tag caused them to pass in the spring and might do so again. They're also OK waiting to see who gets released later this summer. They don't have any interest in former Redskin Bashaud Breeland.

Jay Gruden said the release of Orlando Scandrick was related to the emergence of young corners.

Redskins release free-agent addition Scandrick

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick, who signed with the Redskins as a free agent in March and had worked as a starter in training camp, was released by the team Tuesday.

The Redskins have released veteran corner Orlando Scandrick, a source confirmed. The NFL Network first reported the news. Scandrick was signed in the offseason and had worked as a starting corner opposite Josh Norman. The move signals two things: They have confidence in second year Fabian Moreau to cover in the slot and in Quinton Dunbar to start opposite Norman. Also, they've been pleased with rookies Greg Stroman and Danny Johnson.

Rookie report, part 2: Daron Payne rushed from left end on occasion in a nickel package. His strength can help in a few ways even if he's not getting to the quarterback. On one rush, the Jets' tackle and guard blocked him. As they did so, the running back ran at him as well. Whether or not he wanted to chip a defender already blocked by two was uncertain. But Payne, already engaged somewhat with two, stepped out and impeded his path. In essence, he was taking up three players; it also prevented the back from getting out on his route.

Jets' Pryor says he's recovering from ankle break

Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor will miss this week's preseason game against his old team, the Redskins, as he continues to recover from offseason surgery to repair a fractured ankle.

Rookie report: Undrafted free agent corner Danny Johnson continues to impress. The question is, will it be enough? Johnson made plays vs. the Patriots and did so again today vs. the Jets. On one play he appeared slightly beaten at the line but did not give up more ground, stayed on the receiver's front hip as he ran down the seam and then broke up a pass. The Redskins do like fellow rookie corner Greg Stroman, a seventh-round pick. Johnson might have more ground to make up in the next three games but he's off to a good start.

The big plays to Vernon Davis should serve as a reminder of what he can still do, especially if Jordan Reed is on the field. When Reed went down last year, Davis' yards per catch suffered. He averaged 19.47 yards per catch in the first seven weeks and 12.71 thereafter, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But with Reed on the field Davis commands different matchups -- and it could result in some of the plays Alex Smith threw to Travis Kelce last year in Kansas City.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

One thing that sometimes pops up with Smith: His height. At 6-foot-4, he can often see over the line so that can buy him a little extra time in the pocket; he doesn't have to always move far to create vision. On the pass to Vernon Davis that required an over-the-shoulder catch, Smith was able to throw from the pocket despite pressure in his face. His vision wasn't obscured.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Quarterback Alex Smith had a stronger day throwing the deep ball today, connecting on a deep post with Darvin Kidsy vs. Trumaine Johnson. Smith also hit tight end Vernon Davis on two deep throws: one that required an over-the-shoulder catch and another down the right sidelines in stride.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he would consider fining or suspending players for fighting if necessary. He doesn't want a situation like Sunday to occur in a game. He called the incident "unfortunate".
