Saturday AM update

← return to Redskins 360

The Redskins resumed training camp practices this morning and the shorts-and-shells workout lasted 1 hour, 38 minutes. The special teamers return to the field at 2 p.m.

The news and notes:

*Only three players weren’t participating: RB Anthony Alridge (toe), OL Scott Burley (quad) and LB Robert Henson, who left to be with his pregnant wife.

Several players were limited, including WR Santana Moss (hamstring) and DT Lorenzo Alexander (oblique muscle).

*Coach Jim Zorn was happy with the practice, which came before coaches had a chance to watch the Baltimore video with the players.

“We started out excellent this morning to be really honest,” he said. “Our guys practiced with purpose. The thing I told them that’s the hardest in training camp, we’ve already practiced and we haven’t even got corrections. They haven’t even seen the video yet. They might have read things I said or heard comments or came in and watched it themselves.”

*Three parts of practice were more interesting.

1. One-on-one receiver/defensive back drills from the 40-yard line. DeAngelo Hall and Byron Westbrook intercepted Chase Daniel on consecutive plays. Hall, Justin Tryon and Carlos Rogers broke up passes. On offense, Marques Hagans and Devin Thomas had drops but Marko Mitchell and Malcolm Kelly got free for “touchdown” catches.

2. 7-vs.-7: Jason Campbell was 4-of-6 on his first segment and 4-of-5 on his second try. Tryon had a pass break-up.

3. 11-vs.-11, which completed practice: Campbell was 6-of-8. The best catch was by Antwaan Randle El, who slipped but regained his balance enough to make a diving catch.
