Landry began training camp on the physically unable to perform list and came off it Saturday, when he participated in part of practice.
When he was rehabilitating his Achilles’ tendon in early August, he insisted he did not want to practice until he was fully healed.
“I’m not going 50 percent,” he said Wednesday. “I’m not going 80 percent. All I know is 130 percent, full speed, and I like to practice at game speed. I was feeling great and I thought I could push it harder, which I did too much and I tugged it.”
Veteran Reed Doughty likely would start in Landry’s place.
Toil and Trouble
The Redskins practiced indoors at a local gym Wednesday because of thunderstorms and heavy rain in Ashburn — not exactly the ideal way to prepare for the first game of the season.
“I thought we got a lot done,” Shanahan said. “We got a chance to kind of review all our assignments. We got some running in. I’m just a little afraid to practice out there because it’s just a little slick.”
Construction of an indoor practice bubble on Redskins Park property recently began, and the facility is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 1. Not that it’s doing the team any good this week.
The delay “had to do with permits and those types of things,” Shanahan said. “It didn’t happen as soon as we’d like, but we’ve got it going up, and that’s the main thing.”
• Tight end Chris Cooley (left knee) was limited in practice, and Shanahan does not share Cooley’s confidence that he will play Sunday. “When you don’t take all the reps in practice and you haven’t practiced throughout the preseason, you’re not sure how the knee is going to respond, especially after a couple days of work,” Shanahan said. “Hopefully there’s no setback and he’ll be ready.”
• Others limited in practice were safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (hamstring), receivers Brandon Banks (left knee) and Donte Stallworth (shoulder) and running back Ryan Torain (left hand).
