Nothing really major happened at camp today. It did rain throughout practice and Joe Thomas, Justin Gilbert, Billy Winn, Marquis Grey, Josh Gordon, and Nate Burleson, did not practice. Mike Pettine later said that it was a scheduled day off for Thomas. Tashaun Gibson did dress in pads, but did not participate in team drills.

News and observations from today:

  • Jim Leonard played with the ones at safety in place of Gipson who was held out of team practice due to injury.
  • Neither QB did anything outstanding. Hoyer was intercepted by Buster Skrine, but did complete a couple 20 yard outs. Manziel looked so-so and did not get much time with the ones.
  • F/A WR Charles Johnson continues to impress.
  • The best play of the day was a screen pass to Miles Austin who turned it into a 29 yard touchdown. Rookie Guard Joel Bitonio was was at the goalline with Austin when he scored. He's a Guard!
  • Coach Pettine stated he was impressed with Kirksey, Sheard, and Robertson all stood out to him in Saturday's game.
  • A decision will be made mid week on who will be the starting QB in Washington.
