The Washington Football Team was back on the field for day 16 of training camp on Wednesday, and so was the heat.
Washington had received a bit of a reprieve with the weather recently, especially on Monday when the team practiced in the rain.
When Washington began practice Wednesday, the local media was a bit surprised to see rookie tight end Sammis Reyes on the exercise bike. As it turns out, Reyes was now in concussion protocol.
What else happened on the practice fields in Ashburn?
Here are five takeaways from day 16 of Washington training camp.
Reyes and Hemingway in concussion protocol
With Reyes now in concussion protocol, he joins fellow tight end Temarrick Hemingway, who is also in the protocol. It's unfortunate timing for both players as they battle to earn a roster spot. It's especially tough for Reyes, who had a promising debut last week. He needs to play in as many games as possible. https://twitter.com/InstantRHIplay/status/1427979451577643014?s=20
Rivera loves seeing the deep ball in practice
Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is known for his love of the long ball. It's a part of why Washington signed him in the offseason. The team wanted a quarterback who would take advantage of the team's playmakers at wide receiver. After practice on Wednesday, Rivera said he loves seeing his quarterbacks take shots in practice because it gives the passers and wide receivers more opportunities to get their timing down. https://twitter.com/ZachSelbyWFT/status/1428005719857631236?s=20
Dax Milne getting some first-team work
The coaches gave rookie wide receiver Dax Milne some time with the starters on Wednesday. DeAndre Carter also got some time with the 1s. Milne continues to impress the coaches, while Carter has been steady all summer. Is it Milne vs. Carter for a roster spot? It will be interesting to see Washington's rotation on Friday against the Cincinnati Bengals. https://twitter.com/InstantRHIplay/status/1427992014243737602?s=20
Is Ereck Flowers the starter at left guard?
Veteran offensive lineman Ereck Flowers continues to work with the first team at left guard. He previously split time with Wes Schweitzer, but Flowers has run with the starters all week. https://twitter.com/BenStandig/status/1427987238823071749?s=20
Rookie showing some fire
Rookie defensive end William Bradley-King is in a battle to win one of the backup spots at defensive end behind Montez Sweat and Chase Young. Bradley-King has flashed at times this summer but has flown under the radar for the most part. On Wednesday, Bradley-King showed some fire, getting into it with offensive lineman David Steinmetz. https://twitter.com/NickiJhabvala/status/1427996816096772105?s=20 Now, Bradley -King will try to bring some of that fire to Washington's home preseason opener Friday against the Bengals.
