Here is what you need to know on this Saturday, one week before the Redskins travel to Chicago for their second preseason game:
The Redskins announced just a few days ago that today’s “TBA” practice time was going to be 2:00. That was changed yesterday when they said that the practice has been moved up to 12:55. The session is open to fans.
Monday’s practice schedule will remain the same as it has been for most days of training camp with a closed morning walkthrough and a 3 p.m. practice open to fans. But on Tuesday, there will be a single 1 p.m. practice that is open.
And then that is it as far as practices that the fans—and the media—can see. Starting Wednesday no fans can come to Redskins Park. We will be able to observe only the first 30 minutes of practice, which consists of warmups, stretching, and some individual drills.
Tuesday is the last chance for fans to see the Redskins practice in Ashburn until 2020. A seven-year agreement to hold training camp in Richmond starts next year.
Trent Williams’ foot will be the focus on Saturday. It looked like guard Maurice Hurt fell onto Williams left foot while Pierre Garçon ran into the end zone for the games only touchdown. X-rays taken after the game were negative and it is not known if any further examination is scheduled.
“It’s nothing, really,” said Williams after the game. He was walking with a limp.
We will see if Williams is present for Saturday’s practice and ask Mike Shanahan for an update during his post-practice presser.
