Some of the biggest news coming out of head coach Mike Shanahan’s post-practice media session, is that he will not rush to get his players in pads.
There has been a lot made about the training camp schedule (I’m certainly guilty), and when players can engage in different levels of contact and physicality. Part of the agreement for ending the lockout was that teams would be limited to three full days without pads, which would expire for the Redskins today.
Even with the off day tomorrow, Shanahan expressed concerns for his players getting injured, and indicated that they wouldn’t be in pads any time soon.
“We haven’t decided, but it probably won’t be this next week. I want to keep out of pads for a while. I can’t say the whole week, but I’m leaning that direction.”
Looks like fans will have to wait a while to hear the familiar hits of a padded practice.
