Live Redskins practice report–Day 2

Jones Thompson camp 2016 USAT

RICHMOND–The Redskins are kicking off Day 2 of training camp today at 3 p.m. and Tandler will be on the sideline bringing you highlights as they happen. Check back and refresh frequently to keep up with the latest.

–The sky is overcast and the temperature is holding at a cool, refreshing 83 degrees (and, trust me, compare to yesterday that is very moderate). The players, for certain, will enjoy it.

–Perry Riley will be joining in the fun today, at least on a limited basis. He has been activated after a one-day stint on the PUP list.

–Back returning punts are Rashad Ross, Chris Thompson, Will Blackmon, Jamison Crowder, and, yes, Pierre Garçon. They are trying challenging situations, holding a football in one hand while fielding the punt with the other and standing with their backs to the punter and not being able to turn around and locate the ball until the coaches yells go.

–The players are not in pads again today but Jay Gruden is planning on having them wear pads on Saturday, weather permitting.

–McCoy just threw a nice pass to Vernon Davis, who made the catch along the sideline and (maybe) kept both feet in. Would have been about a 25-yard TD.

–Matt Jones is quick. He popped a quick draft up the middle and make it into the open without being touched (no-pads warning here).

–McCoy rolled right on a bootleg, couldn’t find anyone downfield and went to Jordan Reed just past the line. The TE made a nice, juggling catch.

–Cousins pump faked and got the line to jump. The QB dashed to the left, got around Stephen Paea and drew cheers with a run down the sideline.

–The linemen are going through one-on-one pass protection drills. Not much worth reporting as far as individual matchups but it appears that the offense has the upper hand. I don’t think they woud be giving up very many sacks today.

–Cousins is trying a lot of hard counts in team drills. The defense, however, is staying put.

–A LeRibeus shotgun snap just rolled past Colt McCoy. Aborted play, eight-yard loss.

–Jeremy Harris had perfect coverage on a deep pass but McCoy threw it anyway. Harris hauled in the easy pick as though he was the intended receiver.

–Garçon with a flat drop of a nice Cousins pass on an intermediate route over the middle. I think he’ll still make the team.

–Su’a Cravens with another pick of McCoy. This on was on a flat route and could have been a pick six.

–Then a few minutes later Vernon Davis beats Cravens for a catch but the rookie punched the ball out of Davis’ arm from behind.

They’re starting to wrap it up out here, folks. See you right here tomorrow.

    I saw that Preston Smith is attending a funeral and will not participate this afternoon.

    You reported separately that the Redskins won’t do tackling until ~August 7th; I suppose the Redskins are doing this to limit injuries, but what then is achieved by using pads tomorrow until they start to tackle?

      Conditioning is my guess. Practicing in pads can be a bit more tiresome than practicing without.

    Su’a finishing strong. Nice!

    It’s so great to have action, even it it’s only no-pads practice.

    Thanks for the report, Rich!

      The conservatives want him gone. Too many tattoos and missed workout sessions.

      • Jimmy kubas - Jul 29, 2016 at 7:24 PM

        Missed voluntary sessions. They were worried over nothing. He’s ready just as I thought he would be.he’s a playmaker. Don’t take a bathroom break while he’s on the field. You will miss a touchdown. You’ll come back cheering the replay..httr!

        • lezziemcdykerson - Jul 29, 2016 at 7:44 PM

          Tell it to the conservatives… I dont have a problem with him missing OTAs

      • Jimmy kubas - Jul 29, 2016 at 8:01 PM

        I was referring to conservatives. Not you.sorry I didn’t make that clear.HttR!

    “The quarterback position is about consistency,” Gruden said. “Great, he had one year, and there’s been a lot of quarterbacks in the history of the league that have had good, solid one-year seasons. But it’s about having two, three, four years. Lucky for us, we’re in a position to look at him another year. And he’s in a position to really put a stamp on himself as a quarterback in the National Football League. Really, it’s a win-win situation. We want to keep Kirk. There’s no doubt about that, and he wants to prove himself, which is hats off to him. And we’ll get something done, but we fully anticipate him improving in a big way this year.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/football-insider/wp/2016/07/28/jay-gruden-says-consistency-is-key-to-kirk-cousins-earning-a-big-contract-from-redskins/

    “I’m OK. I’m not lying awake at night,” he said Thursday after the team opened training camp in Richmond. “I got a pretty good raise this year.” -Cousins

    Doesn’t sound like a bitter disgruntled employee to me. Doesn’t sound like a guy insulted by having to play on the tag. Doesn’t sound very emotional at all. I read an article not too long ago about how maybe Scot is trying to turn Cousins into a Tom Brady team first just want to win type QB. Maybe he understands where Scot’s coming from but respectfully is saying NAH pay me. And Scot’s saying prove it.

    Rich. Mind zeroing in on Murphy at DE at the next practice?
