The team held organized team activities (OTAs)--pad- and contact-free practice sessions--for the last three weeks. Prior to that, the Redskins held their offseason conditioning program, which began in April.

The minicamp practices will be run in similar fashion to the OTA sessions.

After this week, the players will then have a break until late July, when training camp begins.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he is pleased with the progress the team has made during offseason workouts, which were attended by nearly every player.

“I think it’s been great for the players. It’s been great for the coaches,” Shanahan said. “We’ve got a lot of work done over the last eight weeks.”
