RICHMOND, Va. - The Washington Redskins start off the month of August with day 8 of training camp.
The teams hit the field at 9:45 a.m. for practice Thursday morning. The scheduled walkthrough at 4:40 p.m. was canceled due to lightning in the area.
The team gets its second off day of camp on Friday and will be back on the field at 1:30 p.m. Saturday for Fan Appreciation Day.
With All-Pro Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams still absent from camp, the team welcomed offensive linemen Donald Penn and Hugh Thornton on Wednesday to add much-needed depth.
"[Penn’s] just a guy who is solid in technique, he played a couple games last year and they tried to move him to right tackle, probably was not ready for that so much," head coach Jay Gruden said. "[He’s] more of a left tackle I think. He is just a good, solid veteran to have.”
News 3, Hampton Roads’ home of the Redskins, will have live coverage from training camp every day the team practices.
