Redskins hold player-only practice today

The Redskins may be locked out of Ashburn, but nearly 30 players took part in a non-mandatory practice session. London Fletcher team captain and defensive leader took the lead in putting this effort together.

As far as defense and offense goes, it has been said that there were more members of the offensive unit present.  As a matter of fact quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck took turns running the offense.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post writes:

Skill players ran seven-on-seven drills while offensive and defensive linemen did drill work on their own. Quarterbacks John Beck and Rex Grossman took turns running the offense.

The Redskins had an old script of plays, so they used that on offense, and Alexander said Fletcher “our defensive coordinator on the field, was putting us in formations, and calling packages.”

Grossman attended despite not being under contract with the team. His deal expired in January

I texted Philip Daniels, defensive end, to see if he made it up to Northern Virginia to join his teammates.  As soon as I sent the text he Tweeted the following:

There is one more practice tomorrow and more players are expected to be present.
