WitP: Bess, Brennan, Hunter, Forney, Tinoisamoa

Davone Bess had 1 catch for 11 yards and returned 4 punts for an average of 6 yards in yesterday's preseason game against the Bucs. He also had an amazing diving one-handed out-of-bounds catch, which you can see in the KITV portion of last night's Chawan-pilation.

The Redskins vs the Patriots is coming up in a few minutes. Redskins Confidential lists Colt Brennan as one of five players to watch.
QB Colt Brennan
He’s running more complicated plays than Chase Daniel, but he still needs to prove that he can run them well and make good, quick decisions. He hesitated on his interception last week, not to mention he stared down the receiver, and then took a chance. Brennan could use a strong game. Actually, he needs a strong game because the threat from Daniel is real. Two weeks ago I never would have thought that.
Both Colt and Chase are scheduled to play in the second half. The game will be broadcast on CBS.

Wayne Hunter talks about his pass-catching ability.
There may a new Jet throwing his hat into the ring for the wide receiver competition.

Offensive lineman Wayne Hunter caught not one, but two balls from qb Erik Ainge on bootlegs during 11-on-11 drills, to raucous cheers from his fellow players.

“The guys are helping me out with letting me know what my route is in the huddle, and I know they have to go through their progressions first before they come to me,” Hunter said. “If I’m open, I’m open. It’s a good thing I can catch the ball.”

“For how big he is, he’s so athletic it’s crazy,” Ainge said. It’s amazing what that guy can do, he does stuff like that all the time.”
Kynan Forney continues to battle his neck injury as well as his competition.
Looks like Louis Vasquez will start at right guard, as he continues to work with the first team. Kynan Forney's neck injury has limited his work, and Vasquez may yet be able to slip into the starting spot. Still, the Chargers would like Forney's experience there.
Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune writes how Pisa Tinoisamoa is fitting in with the Bears.
The strong-side linebacker spot was supposed to be a three-way battle between Tinoisamoa, Jamar Williams and Nick Roach, but Williams (foot) and Roach (concussion) are out with injuries. Most figured Tinoisamoa, who started the first two exhibitions, had the inside track regardless, considering he was a productive veteran in St. Louis and played one season under coach Lovie Smith with the Rams.

"I won't say it has been an unfair competition. It has been an unfortunate one," Tinoisamoa said, referring to the injuries to Williams and Roach. "I'm getting a lot of the reps, which is helping me. But then again, it's less for them. Once they get healthy, we'll get it all going again."
