Redskins Training Camp Injury Roundup; Garçon has Hamstring Strain

New, comments

The Redskins finished their 5th day of practice and have tomorrow off, who got dinged up so far this week?

The Redskins have had a relatively healthy offseason this year.  Jason Hatcher was the most significant injury, requiring arthroscopic surgery on his knee following OTAs.  Today was the Redskins 5th day of training camp practice.  They spent the last three days in pads, and today was the first time they have had live tackling.  The Redskins have had some...issues...with tackling recently and Coach Gruden said they're not playing Buddy football.  Live tackling can lead to more injuries, and that was the fear going into today's practices.

The most significant injury could be Courtney Bridget Jr's shoulder injury that will require an MRI today.  Bridget is a long shot to make the roster, but he is a nominee in this week's Mason/Brennan Hype! Awards.  The hamstring strains for Royster, Worthington, and Garçon need to monitored, but are hopefully minor.  DeSean Jackson also had a minor hamstring strain during OTAs, but has been going full speed after taking a few days off to recover.

Redskins Training Camp Injuries:

Evan Royster: Hamstring Strain

Doug Worthington: Hamstring Strain

Courtney Bridget Jr: Shoulder Injury

Pierre Garçon: Hamstring Strain

"I’ll be good," Garçon said, stopping short of saying he’ll return Wednesday. "No need to really rush it, or trying put everything to the wall right now. It is the first week of training camp." Coach Jay Gruden also did not sound concerned. "He had a little soreness in his hamstring," he said. "He’ll be okay."
