Today was the first day of training camp. The atmosphere was “mild”. The offense once again was obviously behind the defense.
Here are the main pointers:
Albert Haynesworth was not at practice. However he did emerge about two minutes towards the close of practice. He did some work on the side with trainers.
Earlier today the reports were that Haynesworth failed the physical. The physical’s details were not disclosed by Shanahan but they were mainly cardio based.
Some feel that the test was designed for him to fail. DeAngelo Hall expressed those feelings. However Shanahan said that this is the same test anyone his position would have to take. More on this later.
I asked Mike Shanahan about how Malcolm Kelly looked. Early reports had him missing at least two practices. He actually looked okay but Shanahan said that Kelly has to practice. His spot on the roster may depend on it.
Donovan McNabb looked ok today he did fumble one snap but the field was wet and the ball was slick.
