RICHMOND — The Redskins’ training camp site here is rounding into shape. The turf is down on the two full practice fields and a third smaller field the team will use for drills. All are natural grass. The goalposts are up on the two full fields. Work continues on the two-story building next to the fields.

Media members are to be given a hard-hat tour of the training camp site later Monday.

Construction began Jan. 9 and is scheduled to be completed June 30, according to a release given to the media Monday.

The Redskins are scheduled to begin their camp July 25.
