Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry injured his Achilles in midseason last year. He went on injured reserve late in the season. Nearly eight months have passed and coaches are still wary about letting him go full-speed.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the lockout certainly didn’t help matters. Landry was unable to come to the team facility, unable to meet with trainers and rehab under the team’s watchful eye. So the Redskins now have to monitor Landry closely these first few days of camp to understand exactly what he’s ready to do on the practice field.
Landry is on the PUP list, which means he’s attending practice, but not able to participate in all the drills with his teammates.
There doesn’t seem to be a specific timeline in place for Landry. The team has already waited eight months for the Achilles to heal, so it’s not clear when he’ll get the green light.
