Redskins Players Share Their Training Camp Essentials


The first few days of training camp can be the hardest, adjusting to a new routine, away from home, in close quarters with teammates and coaches. Players are limited to seeing their families and relaxing in their own beds. It can be a challenge.

So, how do they manage to make life as normal as possible? How do they keep comfortable in a different city? Here's how some players cope over their three weeks in Richmond, Va.
