Rain forces Redskins indoors for morning walk-through

RICHMOND — The Washington Redskins moved their morning walk-through indoors Tuesday due to rainy, wet conditions.

The Redskins canceled their outdoor walk-through scheduled to be held at their training camp facility. The team announced that it would hold the walk-through indoors at a nearby site. The Redskins did not disclose the site.

The team’s outdoor afternoon practice remains on as scheduled at this point, weather permitting.

The Redskins have dealt with some rainy conditions lately during their first training camp in Richmond, and even used a helicopter at one point to help dry their practice fields. But this is the first weather-related schedule change of camp.

The Redskins’ training camp site does not include an indoor practice facility, although there are tentative plans for one to be built at some point.
