Free agent running back Orleans Darkwa will be among those participating in a tryout at Redskins Park Sunday, a source said. The Redskins need to add another back thanks to several injuries. Both Samaje Perine (ankle) and Byron Marshall (ankle) both will miss time with injuries and Derrius Guice already is out for the season with a torn ACL. They also waived/injured running back Martez Carter, leaving them with three healthy bodies in practice Saturday.

Cam Sims opened the Redskins' eyes in the spring and has continued doing so in training camp. They still consider him a raw receiver, but one who is clearly talented. He caught three passes for 57 yards tonight and had a touchdown catch nullified by penalty. But don't expect him to say Alabama coach Nick Saban made a mistake by not throwing to him more. “He never makes no mistakes,” Sims said. “I got two rings. He's not making no mistakes. I went to the college playoffs four years in a row. No, he ain't making no mistakes. He's doing something right.”

Daron Payne said on his sack he knew he could win inside when the guard “quick set me and tried to jump at me.” Payne's strength then took over as he cut inside. Don't expect Payne to be celebrating anything just yet. When asked what he's most pleased with what he's shown, Payne said, “I can't really say because I haven't done much yet.”

Jets' Darnold looks like rookie in 15-13 loss to Redskins

Sam Darnold threw an interception and showed some of the growing pains of a rookie quarterback in his first preseason start for the New York Jets, who lost to the Washington Redskins 15-13 on a last-second field goal Thursday night.

The Redskins have focused hard on the defensive line the last two years – and it should pay off this season. That's the big takeaway after Thursday's preseason win over the New York Jets. Rookie nose tackle Daron Payne, who has drawn rave reviews in training camp, showed his power in taking on double teams and an ability to win a one-on-one matchup for a sack. Second-year Jonathan Allen also made his presence felt with inside rushes. If these two stay healthy, they will make a big difference with the Redskins' defense.

Rookie Martez Carter has shown some elusiveness and an ability to keep his legs churning and good balance. It's still going to be hard for him to make the roster, but Carter could be someone to place on the practice squad. Though he's undersized, he's not yet someone they could trust on third downs. That'll be the part of his game he must develop.

Ryan Anderson hasn't always flashed as a pass rusher in his one-plus seasons in Washington. He does play strong and on a stunt up the middle, he was able to stay low and drive the linemen back into a sack. Anderson's power isn't in question, but he still needs to threaten more as a rusher off the edge.

Rookie receiver Cam Sims has shown some of what he can do in the first half. Sims dropped a pass in the red zone that resulted in an interception. That's bad. He's had some drops in camp. But he then made tough grabs on his next two attempts. It didn't matter that one was nullified by a penalty; his effort on the play was terrific as he was hit hard coming down with the ball. At 6-foot-5, Sims' size makes him an intriguing prospect. He has a real shot to make the team.

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.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
