Redskins Players Enjoying The Day Off

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 7, 2011 – 4:04 pm

Yesterday marked the first full-contact practice of the year for the Redskins, and they came out of it pretty healthy.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan has made strides towards returning to full speed.  Quarterback John Beck is said to have tweaked his groin in practice and was limited for the remainder.  Tight end Chris Cooley has practiced on and off this week, but could be turning the corner in his return from a knee injury.  Safety LaRon Landry has still not been cleared from the P.U.P., but has not reported any setbacks yet.

With all of that in mind, the Redskins look to be in good shape and are in the middle of enjoying a well-deserved day off.  Most players are staying far away from football today and taking in some other forms of entertainment.

Rookie wide receiver Leonard Hankerson’s internal clock has been skewed thanks to the practice schedule:

Other rookie receiver Niles Paul is hitting up the movie theater:

Defensive Renaissance Man Lorenzo Alexander is taking in some tunes:

And rookie outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan is…well…putting in his two cents:

After a great Fan Appreciation Day, I hope everyone is enjoying their day off too.

    Whats the word on Helu?\

    Ive seen absolutely no reports on him. Is he getting touches?

    Honestly, not really. It is a crowded backfield at the moment, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing when a player isn’t getting touches. Sometimes if a player is on the bubble, they’ll run them hard to see what they’re made of and help get them on tape for the next team. I don’t think Helu is at any risk of not playing, but the gameplan for his role may have changed with the addition of Hightower. Haven’t seen a whole lot of Helu yet, but I bet he gets some serious looks in the preseason games. I’ll keep an eye on him for you

    Speaking of taking a day off, do you think Chris Cooley is doing enough during the off season??? I feel that he could be much better than he is and he seems to always have these little injuries that often seem to come from not being in prime time game shape. I love Cooley, but I’m disappointed in his offseason habits. He seems to really not know what it takes to be a great player and I don’t see the dedication and will to really be great. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Jt3 is out

    I’ve been following the Skins for 30 years. Cooley isn’t getting the most out of his abilities. He’s just not purely dedicated to the game and I’ve talked to people that know him who agree. He doesn’t push himself like top flight athletes do. Does he work hard? Yes, of course he does but he doesnt have the mental toughness to take it to the next level. You want guys on your team who want one thing and that is to win the superbowl. Cooley has lost that edge and it might be because he’s been on a losing team so long I”m not sure.
