Previously, it was Robert Henson who made a fool of himself on Twitter when he was a member of the Redskins.
Now, safety LaRon Landry may be making a mistake by intimating the Redskins’ training staff is partly to blame for his slow return from a hamstring injury after his Achilles’ was healed.
In separate Twitter postings this weekend, which have since been deleted, Landry wrote (per the Washington Post):
“Uuhhh oo it ain’t my fault…blame the genius circus staff for the rush. Would’ve been there 2wks ago. Im [sorry] but saga [continues].”
“Dont u hate when u absolutely know something 200% and dumb…still do the opposite of what u tell them!!! Set backs... !!!”
Landry went through part of the practice on Monday and did not speak to reporters. A source told CSNwashington.com that Landry did some work but the hamstring “got a little tight.”
Landry has yet to go through a full practice in training camp/preseason and isn’t expected to play against the New York Giants.
Landry, who said Monday he would talk to reporters on Wednesday, will likely deny the Twitter posts were aimed at the Redskins’ training staff. Consider …
* The training staff had no contact with Landry during the lockout per NFL rules.
* Landry was on the physically unable to perform list until Monday, meaning he was not allowed to practice.
* And when he hurt the hamstring before the game at Indianapolis, it was doing a sprint.
It’s always dangerous to take Twitter posts as fact, but it raises an interesting flag, especially since Landry is soon due a new contract.
