Redskins wrap up Richmond camp after short session

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) A day after treating young fans of the Washington Redskins with free snow cones to show his appreciation for their loyalty, defensive end Ricky Jean Francois treated his team to an abbreviated practice on Monday.

The Redskins wrapped up their training camp in Richmond after a workout that lasted less than half an hour. It ended when the 313-pound Jean Francois managed to catch a machine-generated punt after fellow defensive lineman Chris Baker couldn't.

The winning catch came after Jean Francois let several punts fall well short of where he was stationed, surrounded by teammates.

When he finally tried to catch one and gathered it in, he was mobbed by cheering teammates eager to get showered and head north to the team's headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia, where camp will continue on Tuesday.
