“We’re hoping that by him staying off of it for a week that it’s much improved,” Shanahan said.
Training camp site picked
Richmond mayor Dwight C. Jones announced that the Redskins‘ training camp site beginning in 2013 will be the Leigh Street (Science Museum) location. According to an illustration by the city of Richmond, the camp site will include two practice fields, a drill field, a field house, a fan zone and a kids zone.
“We believe our Richmond training camp experience will become the model for all professional sports teams,” Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said in a statement.
Long snapper Nick Sundberg was evaluated Monday and can begin practicing Wednesday. After breaking his arm Week 1 at New Orleans, the Redskins placed him on injured reserve with the designation to return. He can come back Nov. 18 vs. Philadelphia.
• Shanahan had no update on London Fletcher, reiterating that the middle linebacker had a “slight” right hamstring strain. Wednesday’s practice could provide a better prognosis for Fletcher, who holds the active NFL record for consecutive starts with 231.
