Washington Football team training camp 2020 report #4
Chronicle SkinsCamp 2020.
Notes and observations. 08/25/2020.
OG Wes Schweitzer, CBs Fabian Moreau and Kendall Fuller, and OT Saahdiq Charles did not participate in the general practice, but worked on individual exercises on the side field. ⠀
In 9 on 9 DT exercises, Da'Ron Payne put pressure on Alex Smith's QB. When the envelope slammed shut, it crashed lightly into Smith's right leg. Smith jumped forward and threw the ball.
DE Chase Young worked with the second team in the first 11v11 game. HC Ron Rivera said yesterday that they want to bring him into the squad gradually. It looks like this is the next step. ⠀
QB Dwayne Haskins made only one pass attempt in the first 11v11 exercise, and that passed to Logan Thomas's TE. According to Ron Rivera, the two are starting to bond with each other, and so far they seem to be doing it.
Haskins has 4 completes out of 4 passing attempts in 11v11 and 9v9 exercises. One pass to Logan Thomas' TE in 11v11, and three passes to RB Adrian Peterson, WRs Dontrelle Inman and Terry McLaurin. Inman, despite decent cover, made an impressive move at the end zone.
WR Antonio Gandy-Golden, who made a drop yesterday in the end zone, got better today: he caught a low pass from Smith in the red zone while working 9 on 9.
Many touchdowns were recorded within the "red zone", in exercises 9 on 9. Haskins has two touchdown passes on the WR of Steven Sims JR and TE of Logan Thomas. Kyle Allen's QB also had a few assists on TE Baugh and Trey Quinn's WR.
DE Chase Young took part in the team practice and the 9v9 drill, playing in the second squad. Recall: not in full contact, the loads on it increase gradually.
Redskin rookie, S Kamren Curl - with the first interception. He did a good job reading the game and what Kyle Allen wanted to do. Curl ran great and made a good return. DB coach Chris Harris says Curl does good things.
LB Reuben Foster is gradually returning to his playing form, today he took part in the game with the third team, where he scored a pass. The team seem to be taking their time with him as the star midfielder recovers from a serious knee injury. He is still far from his previous form, but is working to bring it back.
