Daniel Snyder looked on from the sideline of Thursday's practice at Redskins Park, his team mired at 2-4 after back-to-back losses, when former quarterback Joe Theismann leaned over to say, "We're building a foundation here that is really gonna be something."
ASHBURN Josh LeRibeus was among the 18 players remaining on the field 10 minutes after Thursday's practice. Drenched in sweat, he removed his helmet to unwind for a moment before trotting to the locker room with the rest of Washington's offensive line. For the second straight week, the exhaustion had added significance.
On Sunday, Jeff Bostic and Monte Coleman will join 46 other Redskins players, coaches and officials in the team's Ring of Fame at FedEx Field. Not bad for a couple of guys who began their careers as special-teams standouts. Bostic's path to the Ring of Fame was improbable. Undersized, he went undrafted in 1980 despite earning All-ACC honors at Clemson.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Kirk Cousins is fool's gold. He looks so shiny and bright, right up until he disappoints you. Cousins has played enough to establish who he is as an NFL quarterback right now. He's a guy who is enticing to gamble on, but he doesn't pay off.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Jay Gruden has carefully watched the film of the New York Jets' defense and knows exactly why it has given opponents fits this season. "Well, let's see," the Washington Redskins coach said. "They have a great defensive line, their linebackers are fast, physical and they can cover anybody anywhere. They are active, they are fast and they're disruptive."
ASHBURN When the Redskins finish their final practice session of the week, the team's noisy defensive linemen say their goodbyes. Frank Kearse gets his own special farewell. "We tell him, 'We'll see you Wednesday, Frank,' " Terrance Knighton noted.
ASHBURN Washington Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams will miss Sunday's game at the New York Jets with a concussion, part of a long list of injuries for the team.
