RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins returned to practice Wednesday after a day off, getting one more workout in before the Houston Texans arrive Thursday to begin three days of joint practices.

It is the second year in a row the Redskins will help break up the monotony of the preseason by lining up against another team. Last season, the New England Patriots spent three days at Washington's facility.

The Redskins and Texans met in the regular-season opener last year, with the Texans claiming a 17-6 victory.

Washington linebacker Keenan Robinson says that gives both teams a level of familiarity with what the other tries to do, but the joint workouts still have value as coaches try to evaluate their teams.
