Tensions High in Jets/Redskins Joint Practices Involving Former Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor

There’s no love lost between Terrelle Pryor and the Redskins, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance Media reports.

The Jets’ wide receiver and his former team came into this week’s joint practices surrounded by controversy. But for the most part, they’ve stayed out of trouble.

That changed Tuesday, though.

After Pryor went one-on-one with Redskins’ safety D.J. Swearinger, the two started jawing back and forth. That led to Swearinger throwing a fake punch, which Pryor fell for – and flinched in a major way.

That incident was just one of a few during the teams’ final joint practice on Tuesday.

Jets defensive end Nathan Shepherd got into a shoving and wrestling match with Shawn Lauvao during team drills, drawing a crowd. A little earlier, a full-team skirmish broke out between the Jets’ offense and Redskins’ defense, though no punches were thrown. Jets’ defensive back Rashard Robinson got into a verbal war with Redskins’ tight end Cam Sims during 7-on-7 drills, too.

That was tame compared to Sunday’s practice, though. The first joint workout between the two teams devolved into chaos with a handful of large fights, which Todd Bowles later admonished.

    Well, camp here in Richmond is officially closed, and I missed attending once again.

    Sammy Baugh was their QB when I came in in the 40’s. Remember seeing his last game at old GRIFFITH stadium in 1952.

    And freezing to death in the December 1960 Ice-bowl against the GIANTS.

    Or the time VINCE PROMUTO came over to the stands at D.C. stadium in 1968, and threaten to beat the stuffings out of us if we didn’t shut up.

    On the 20th anniversary of my fandom, I remember how exciting it was to drive up to DICKINSON College, and watch from the end-zone as LARRY BROWN exploited room-sized holes in the d-line over and over again.

    All the while hoping for a glimpse of their new coach and part-owner,VINCE LOMBARDI.

    And an exhibition game in ’72 that I missed all but the second half of after an epic fight with my wife who got us lost enroute to the game.

    But age has taken my youthful enthusiasm for all things REDSKINS.

    Now I’m content to sit in front of the television, and root them on with less verbosity, but just as much desire to see them win another SUPER BOWL.

    GO ‘SKINS or in the current vernacular httr…..

    Next season will be the second season of my eighth decade as a REDSKINS fan. Can’t wait to see them win it all once again in 2020.

    Note to JON GRUDEN:

    Play the second string to start off. Or if TODD BOWLES pulls a BILL BELICHICK, the third string until the first team can play against their second unit.

    RB injuries.

    Don’t these guys ever train for joint injuries to their legs? I mean…….really!

    So IF KAPRI BIBBS can stay upright and on the field, he can win the slot that almost everyone had ceded to BYRON MARSHALL.

    KELLEY does not impress me at all. He’starting that turning sideways when he sees he’s about to be hit. No good.

    Had one of those cats who started on my high school football team. We lost a lot.

    Of course, I was there too which says more than something about my abilities on the football field.

    But looking out to September 1 and the cut-down, I think MARSHALL is on the inactives the first week, and BIBBS takes the fourth RB slot behind THOMPSON.

    BTW, my mother’s family are BIBBS, so I’m all in for KAPRI.

    Injury report for the start of the season:

    CB JOSHUA HOLSEY – season-ending IR non-football off-season injury
    WR ROBERT DAVIS – season-ending IR practice injury
    RB DERRIUS GUICE – season-ending IR game injury [PATRIOTS]
    TE MANASSAH GARNER – season-ending IR game injury [PATRIOTS]

    NT STACY McGEE – 6 weeks IR training room injury.

    RB BYRON MARSHALL – game injury [JETS]

    ‘Skins will prolly go into the season with 52 keeping him on the inactive list first week or two.

    SIX injured players, and we haven’t even gotten to the third pre-season game yet.
