Head coach Mike Shanahan delivered positive news about on Sunday about injuries following the game. Of particular interest is starting strong safety LaRon Landry who has yet to see the practice field this preseason.
“Y’know, he was doing real well,” Shanahan said. “I think the Achilles healed, but he tweaked his hamstring working out in Indy. Y’know those hamstrings are always day-by-day, so we’re gonna just have to wait and see.”
Yesterday also marked the first day that safety Oshiomogho Atogwe practiced with his teammates since Fan Appreciation Day. Inside linebacker London Fletcher and cornerback Josh Wilson were also back after missing practice at the end of last week.
“It’s good to have [Oshiomogho Atogwe] back,” Shanahan said. “It’s good to get those guys practicing. [Fletcher] practiced today fully. I’m not saying he was full speed, but he did all the reps and looked good.”
Getting so many players healthy on the defensive side of the ball should give the Redskins a better idea of what they have going into the last two preseason games.
Check out the full video of the press conference below (don’t mind the thunder):
Practice yesterday was actually called a few minutes early thanks to thunderstorms in the area. Here is footage from earlier in practice, when the sun was still shining.
The defensive linemen have done a lot of work with footwork and agility, and it’s been a marked improvement across the board from the beginning of camp until now:
And here footage of Sav Rocca practicing a few different punting styles. In case you can’t make out the grainy footage, kicker Clint Stitser is back to receive.
I wouldn’t consider him to be the team’s primary option for returner:
