Thursday Practice Report - Redskins @ Packers
Once again for the Redskins, who head to potentially frigid Lambeau Field on Sunday, the practice bubble was not happening on Thursday.
In years past, it probably would have been used on a day like today. There was bright sunshine, but cold and blustery conditions were met far too often with an indoor practice.
It doesn't make any sense to practice inside this week or moving forward unless you can't get any footing outside.
The Redskins are doing the right there to prepare for the Green Bay Packers and in addition, have officials back again.
A few staples of Redskins practices under Bill Callahan have been more fundamentals and technique work, officials as a constant presence and less screwing around.
That's a good thing.
Once again, Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn were not at practice during the media portion, as they were not on Wednesday.
Quinn is still in concussion protocol and you can almost surely lock it in that he's not playing this Sunday. Richardson doesn't seem like he's ever going to be a fit in the building.
The official injury report looks like this for Thursday:
DNP: Trey Quinn, Paul Richardson, Deshazor Everett and Adrian Peterson (toe), who was full on Wednesday
Limited: Ryan Anderson, Montez Sweat, Morgan Moses, Brandon Scherff.
Full: Ryan Kerrigan, Cole Holcomb, Montae Nicholson, Chris Thompson.
The Peterson situation bears some watching. To completely miss Thursday after a full practice Wednesday is somewhat unusual. Last week, Peterson was limited on Wednesday, did not participate on Thursday and then was a full-go on Friday and more than fine in Carolina.
Perhaps this is just the Redskins way of managing workload and pain in the toe for two days in a row?
For the Packers: Jimmy Graham and Davante Adams were among the Green Bay players that were limited.
If you ever wanted to see an NFL team stretch - you're in luck! We were there for you!
