Here are practice notes from today’s OTA session under the bubble at Redskins Park. Since no tweeting was allowed, they are being presenting in Twitter-like fashion.
This will be interesting with 90 players practicing on one field. Not much room to operate.
Chris Cooley looking very fit, no wraps or braces on knee. Moving and cutting very well.
As the dropped back side by side, Griffin was taking snaps from a center, Rex Grossman was just holding the ball in front of himself. Trying to get RG3 used to taking direct snaps?
Trent Williams appears to have dropped a few pounds. Middle has shrunk some.
Josh Leribeus getting some right guad snaps. Some at center too.
RG3 is not getting cheated out of any reps. He is not just working with the No. 1 offense, he is handing off to Tristan Davis and throwing passes to Niles Paul.
Danny Smith is in midseason form, joking with reporters on the sideline and getting down in a three-point stance with the field goal protection team.
DeAngelo Hall not present. [Note: London Fletcher said after practice that Hall has been around for most of the offseason program.]
For having almost 90 players out there, things went pretty smoothly. There was a play where Griffin was ready to snap the ball but the defense was short a linebacker. They held up for a few seconds while the missing player got back into place.
Hopefully during the season RG3 will quick snap on that play to catch the defense shorthanded.
Paul with a nice catch of a Griffin rope. Then a nice one to Moss as he was going out of bounds.
Jarvis Jenkins has on a full knee brace but participated in team drills.
Neil Rackers booming some field goals, hitting the top of the camera tower from 40 yards out.
Rookie cornerback Richard Crawford was with Garçon step for step on a deep pass by Griffin and knocked it down. That drew some shouts of encouragement from the defensive starters on the other end of the field.
It looks like Trent Williams is taking more snaps than any other offensive lineman. After missing the last four games of the season and a few due to a knee injury earlier in the year he can use the work.
Head coach down! Mike Shanahan on the ground after getting mowed from the blindside by cornerback Brandyn Thompson. Shanny got up and appeared to shake it off.
