On the third day of training camp, the Washington Redskins took part in their first fully-padded practice, with some new drills that weren’t on display the first two days.
Redskins training camp wasn’t quiet for long. On the second day, the team signed troubled linebacker Junior Galette while it was announced that cornerback Bashaud Breeland was suspended one game for his citation of marijuana possession during last year’s training camp.
During practice Breeland suffered an apparent leg injury and was carted off the field. He is expected to miss several weeks.
Day three of Redskins training camp consisted of the first practice featuring shoulder pads.
Get a good look at some day three action.
The Redskins kicked off their second year of training camp in Richmond on Thursday morning during what started out as very a rainy practice.

The Redskins are set at most positions and bolstered several spots such as wide receiver, reserve inside linebacker, and special teams coverage in the offseason. But like every other team in the NFL, not every position is set, leaving battles looming as training camp arrives.
Here are my top five battles to watch during training camp and the team’s four preseason games over the next month and a half.
