The Washington Redskins held an unofficial players-organized workout at an undisclosed location in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, in response to the NFL lockout preventing the team from holding any official offseason training programs.

According to NBC4's report, the practice involved a series of simple drills designed simply to get everyone back into a football mindset. Fletcher had to purchase all the equipment himself, including a bunch of footballs that he unloaded onto the field.
Among the notable absences of players currently under contract: Donovan McNabb, Ryan Torain, Trent Williams, DeAngelo Hall, LaRon Landry and newcomer O.J. Atogwe. Hall and many of the other defensive backs are expected to take part in practices later in the week.
