Another session of organized team activities was open to the media at Redskins Park Thursday afternoon, and Washington head coach Mike Shanahan was on hand to discuss a variety of topics with the media. Among the tidbits that were disclosed:
- Robert Griffin III says he's learned "between 60 and 70%" of the Redskins' playbook.
- Linebacker Brian Orakpo was watched workouts from the sidelines as a precaution after undergoing an MRI on his surgically repaired left pectoral muscle
- Barry Cofield and Tanard Jackson were excused absences. According to Shanahan, there have been no unexcused absences.
- Chris Cooley's troublesome left knee has not given him any issues in workouts.
- Leonard Hankerson's hip is healed and the receiver should be ready for the opening day of the season.
- Likewise, Tim Hightower is expected to be ready for training camp coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL. Joshua Morgan (ankle) and Jonathan Goff (knee) should also be ready for the start of camp.
- Graham Gano has only kicked one day this offseason, as he struggles with a back injury suffered in the Week 17 loss to Philadelphia.
- Brian Banks will be in for a workout at some point next week.
- Santana Moss is in the best shape of Shanahan's D.C. tenure.
- Finally, Shanahan admitted that he was really shaken up by last week's collision with Pierre Garcon and Brandyn Thompson.
Shanahan says he addressed the team 10 minutes after being hit last week, and he doesn't remember what he said. #Redskins— Rich Campbell (@Rich_Campbell) May 31, 2012
