Thursday’s Redskins’ OTA’s were open to the media, so here are a collection of articles to help you sort through all of the ‘exciting’ action:
Mike Shanahan says hit was most jarring accident of his career By Mark Maske – Washington Post
“Shanahan’s toughness is not questioned. As a college quarterback at Eastern Illinois he stayed on the field in a spring game after a hit that shoved his kidney behind his spine and split it open. Shanahan passed out and his heart stopped beating for a half minute. He was given last rites. He was unconscious for five days and his playing career was ended by the blow.“
Another week, another comfort level reached for RG3 By Ben Standig – CSN Washington
“I feel a lot more comfortable today, whereas I didn’t know anything before I got here,” RG3 said, speaking to a cadre of reporters after Thursday’s OTA. “I think I know at least 60 to 70 percent of it pretty well, but you can’t operate at 60 to 70 percent. You’ve got to operate at 150 percent with your offense because not only do you have to know it, but you have to know what to do in certain situations. That’s still to come.”

There isn’t a lot to report on when there is no contact, no pass rush, no real football whatsoever.
