Workouts intensify as offense gains traction
Haynesworth, who did not practice Monday but is expected to return Tuesday, faces reckless driving and expired registration charges from a December crash that injured another driver.
Still no Landry
Safety LaRon Landry is still the only healthy player who has not attended a voluntary workout. Zorn said he has yet to speak to Landry.
“I continue to hope he shows,” Zorn said. “I hope every day.”
Defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery and linebacker Cody Glenn weren’t present but were slated to practice Tuesday. Receiver James Thrash (neck), fullback Eddie Williams (knee) and offensive linemen Randy Thomas (knee) and Devin Clark (knee) remained out.
Right tackle Mike Williams left practice after he was caught up in a pile.
“He went to the ground one time on a block and jammed his knee into the ground,” Zorn said. “That’s a lot of beef to put on the ground so suddenly.”
The Redskins practiced several drills Monday, including quarterbacks throwing long passes to defensive backs.
“A ball machine throws it exactly the same place every time,” Zorn said. “The quarterbacks will throw it a little behind and in front and make those guys work for the catch. Those are drills we can do because it’s hard to get a lot of reps like that during training camp and the season.”
Lottery ticket unveiled
“Redskins Mania,” the teams partnership with the Virginia Lottery, was officially introduced Monday and is expected to donate $8 million to the states public schools.
“Next to Haynesworth and DeAngelo Hall, this may be the most important investment the team makes this off-season,” Redskins COO Mitch Gershman said.
With a $20 ticket, cash prizes range from $20 to $1 million, and second-chance drawings will be held for chances to win Redskins-related prizes, such as season tickets for 20 years. The scratch-off tickets go on sale in early August.
Several NFL teams are taking advantage of the new league rule allowing business with state lotteries. As part of the agreement, the Redskins will be paid for the use of their logo on the card but will not receive a percentage of the profit.
