Redskins Break Camp With Intense Practice

Posted Aug 16, 2011

The Redskins put a wrap on 2011 training camp in style -- with an intense practice and a scuffle between two teammates. "It's the nature of the game," Mike Shanahan said.


The Redskins wrapped up an unusual three-week training camp on Tuesday. With no OTAs last offseason due to the NFL lockout, training camp was the first time players and coaches could meet and work with each other.

“It was a bit unusual, but we did get a lot done and I was really pleased with the effort and the mindset,” head coach Mike Shanahan said. “The guys really approached it in the right way.”

With camp winding down, intensity picked up during the Redskins’ final practice on Tuesday.

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall got into a scuffle with safety Chris Horton after a play during 7-on-7 drills. Rehabbing safety LaRon Landry had to break it up.

“I’ve seen that many of times, both on offense and defense,” Shanahan said. “Those things occur. It’s part of camp. You talk about keeping your poise, but you understand how it happens.

"It’s two competitive guys getting after it. It’s the nature of the game in every place I’ve been.”

Training camp featured multiple position battles -- quarterback, running back, wide receiver and linebacker, among others -- as well as an orientation for a long list of rookies and first-time Redskins.

“It’s just been a real thick competition,” said receiver Anthony Armstrong, who finished his second training camp with the team. “You can’t let up, can’t afford to take a step back, because we have guys young and old who are both pushing for your spot.”

Rookie running back Evan Royster learned a valuable lesson about football in his first training camp in the NFL.

“To tell you the truth, I learned that 80 percent of this game is mental,” said Royster, the Redskins sixth-round draft choice. “We know how to play football, all of us do, but once you get that mental part down, that’s how you separate yourself.”

The Redskins now move to more of a regular season practice schedule.

“You’re a little more game-plan orientated and you can start focusing on the team that you’re playing that week,” Armstrong said. “Practices will still be the same intensity.”
