Camp Report: Day 2 P.M. Session

John Keim reports on the Day 2 afternoon session of Redskins training camp on July 28, 2007.

Was this when the hitting finally commenced? Don't hold your breath. But one play did take Chris Cooley's breath away. Meanwhile, Jason Campbell unleashed a beauty down the sideline to Brandon Lloyd. Yes, Brandon Lloyd, who has enjoyed showing off his legs this camp.

Missing something: The Redskins have held three practices so far -- all in shorts, shoulder pads and helmets. Which means no full contact. All this talk about more intense workouts has failed to produce exactly that. Perhaps there will be more contact in coming practices, but so far it appears to be a rather easy start to camp. No practice has lasted longer than 90 minutes.

Landry update: Coach Joe Gibbs said he thought that safety LaRon Landry could be signed "any minute." However, we've heard that Landry could be a few more days, most likely until after the fifth and seventh picks sign. At this point, it wouldn't be surprising if it dragged on until Thursday.

Best pass: Quarterback Jason Campbell and Brandon Lloyd connected on a pretty 40-yard pass down the left sideline. As Lloyd reached the 10-yard line, he looked up in the sky where the ball was already headed his way. He never broke stride as he crossed the goal line, beating Fred Smoot.

Big hit: Rookie running back Marcus Mason caught a pass from Jordan Palmer over the middle -- and was promptly nailed by linebacker Lemar Marshall, falling to the ground. If they had been in ful pads, Mason might still be on the ground.

Collision: Tight end Chris Cooley and corner Ade Jimoh collided while going after a Jason Campbell pass along the right sideline. Cooley, running an out, was hit by Jimoh who leapt for the interception as he raced diagonally for the sideline. Jimoh hit Cooley, who later admitted that he had the wind knocked out of him on the collision.

Injuries: Left guard Randy Thomas remained sidelined with a sore right knee. Tight end Tyler Ecker (groin) did not practice and is day to day. Linebacker H.B. Blades (cramps) and defensive lineman Bryant Shaw (cramps) did not practice.

On the stand: Receiver Brandon Lloyd said he added approximately 10 pounds and most of it, if not all, appears to be muscle. Lloyd said he worked out for the first time in his career in the offseason. He worked with a personal trainer in Arizona, lifting twice a day. It wasn't because he was embarrassed by last year; he just decided it was time. "I'm not using this camp to get in shape," he said, "that's what I was doing in the past." Lloyd actually looks a bit faster.

One thing to know: he is definitely the No. 3 starter at this point, behind Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El. That doesn't bother Lloyd, who said, "I'd be perfectly fine."

Brunell to Atlanta?: Joe Gibbs diffused the Mark Brunell to Atlanta rumors -- sort of. Asked about a possible deal today, Gibbs said, "I wouldn't guess that we'd want to get rid of a quarterback... We like our quarterbacks."
