What to know, who to watch for at 2019 Redskins training camp

July 23, 2019

Amid sliding attendance numbers at their games and the shock of losing a starting quarterback to a potentially career-ending injury, the Washington Redskins are hoping to whip themselves — and possibly their most loyal fans — into shape before the season officially begins.

There’s a question of how ready first-round pick QB Dwayne Haskins will be to begin his career in the NFL, even after coming off a successful career at Ohio State. Curious Skins fans should be able to get their first glimpse of Haskins’ mettle before the preseason at these training camps.

Other notable players to watch include the quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Case Keenum and running back Derrius Guice, who suffered an ACL tear in the preseason opener against the New England Patriots last year and missed the entire 2018 season. Adrian Peterson will also make his first appearance at a Skins training camp this year.

The team has also stacked its defense this year, and these training camps may give fans the chance to see if they will be the dominant force that some analysts are predicting.

Training camps will be held at Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Virginia.

The 22 on-field open sessions are open to the public. Mobile passes can be reserved online, or through the My Redskins App.

The camp is open to all ages. There will be youth fitness obstacle courses along with interactive tents with special events, giveaways and other unique fan experiences.

Players and coaches will be available to sign autographs and take pictures if their schedules permit it, but the team does not guarantee that all attending fans will get to meet a specific player or coach.
