Jack Pardee said yesterday the Redskins will likely return here next summer for training camp.
"We haven't talked it out yet," the coach said. "I still wish it (camp) was a little closer (to Washington). But the cooperation and the facilities are hard to duplicate anywhere else. We'll meet with them next week and make a decision."
The Redskins had been talking to officials at George Mason University in Fairfax about moving camp there, but that school does not yet have a football program and the facilities that go with it.
Dickinson College officials as well as many civic leaders in Carlisle are trying hard to keep the Redskins in town. A school spokesman said if appeared likely the Redskins would come back, with a one-year contract.
Defensive end Coy Bacon, on a passrushing drill the other day kept making a move to the outside to beat his man and get to the quarterback.
"Why don't you take it inside?" asked Doc Urich, the defensive coordinator.
"OK coach, I will," Bacon replied, and walked into the dressing room.
Middle linebacker Harold McLinton never again will wear a jacket under his jersey on a hot summer day. Not after Tuesday.
McLinton dropped 13 pounds during practice and cramped up in the locker room afterward, suffering from dehydration. He was taken to Carlise Hospital and reieased after three hours of observation. He was back on the practice field yesterday, minus the jacket.
Pardee said Billy Kilmer probably will open at quarterback Friday night against the Colts in Baltimore, and that Joe Teirmann will see frequent action . . . Tony Green, who twisted his knee in drills Tuesday, was back at practice yesterday and Pardee said he hoped to use him in Baltimore . . . Running back Mike Thomas (bronchitis) and tight end Jean Fugett (sprained shoulder) also took part in afternoon drills . . . Many Redskins were packing their cars in anticipation of leaving Carlisle for the summer. Today is the last of training camp, but they won't be able to get out of town until this evening, and must be in their Baltimore hotel by 11 tonight . . . Ted Fritsch got a standing ovation from his teammates when he kicked a 42-yard field goal to close practice yesterday. Those lead shoes work every time.
