With training camp kicking off Thursday, most of the Redskins have either arrived in Richmond or are sitting in traffic en route. Nose tackle Chris Neild’s journey to camp featured an exciting — and almost terrible — start.

Until Neild comments further on his good fortune, I’m going to imagine that his interaction with the officer went something like this:
Neild: “I’m sorry, sir, I was just on my way to training ca–”
Officer: “Hey, aren’t you that guy from ‘American Muscle’?”
Neild: “Well, yeah, but I also–”
Officer: “Man, I love that show. Here’s a warning. Be on your way.”
Teammate Ryan Clark encountered an entirely different problem.

Clark’s followers responded with recommendations, but judging by the safety’s tweets on Wednesday, none of them worked out.
@chpn at the shop and no one is here. Thought they got here early. That number doesn’t work either.

My attempt to get a haircut in Richmond has failed!!! What barbershop isn’t open at 9:00? — Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) July 23, 2014
I give up! I will now forgo haircuts until camp ends! — Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) July 23, 2014
Trent Williams set off for camp in a fresh T-shirt and the following message posted to Instagram: “Off to Richmond va. The grind is back #silverback #httr #camplife.”
Pierre Garcon tweeted for everyone who has spent time on 95 South…
