Immaculate conditions, bigger crowds greet Redskins at training camp

redskins training camp day 2

RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) – The same nasty winds, rains and storms that drove Washington Redskins fans out of training camp on Thursday were nowhere in sight Friday morning. An almost fall-like chill greeted fans of the burgundy and gold, while the team enjoyed much better field conditions to start the morning session.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III and the Redskins’ offense slipped, slid, and stumbled through the rains on Thursday morning before eventually being forced into a nearby convention center for a closed afternoon session. The only obstacle Friday morning, besides a bright summer sky, was a somewhat slushy field, though it didn’t severely affect drills.

New head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that Griffin looked “a little erratic,” but credited that to the wet footballs and slick practice conditions.

An afternoon walkthrough is on schedule to begin at 4 p.m., while new wide receiver and former Philadelphia Eagle DeSean Jackson will address the media at 11:15 a.m. For updates from the Bon Secours Training Center, follow WAVY Sports Director Bruce Rader and Sports reporter Nathan Epstein, and WAVY.com and on Twitter.
