Safety Jordan Pugh is back at team headquarters for mandatory minicamp after missing the last two weeks of voluntary practices with an ear infection that prevented him from traveling from his home in Texas.
Pugh, however, did not practice Tuesday and is not expected to participate in any minicamp practices.
“He’s OK now, but he’s got a balance issue, so the doctors didn’t want to practice him today or tomorrow,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “But he’ll be ready for camp. Didn’t want to practice him today or tomorrow, but he’ll be ready for camp, a little bit unusual ear infection that he does have, but the doctors advised him not to practice.”
Most of the Redskins’ “all-world uncleared team,” as quarterback Robert Griffin III put it last month, is expected to be cleared to participate in training camp when it begins July 25.
“I think everybody looks pretty good,” Shanahan said. “There might be one or two guys, which, I’m not going to go into detail, that I have a little bit of question about, but the majority of guys, I’d say 90 percent of them will be ready to go.”
One of the greater concerns is defensive end Adam Carriker’s return from last season’s right quadriceps tear. He suffered a setback in his rehabilitation during the winter and has not attended any offseason practice reporters were permitted to watch.
Offensive lineman Jacolby Ashworth exercised on the side because of a sprained wrist.
