Washington hopeful Junior Galette will be ready for training camp


Washington coach Jay Gruden’s hopeful that a pair of veterans coming off major injuries are getting closer to contributing again.

Via Nora Princiotti of the Washington Times, Gruden seemed optimistic about the outlook for outside linebacker Junior Galette, who hasn’t played the last two seasons because of Achilles injuries.

“He’s running and lifting, all that stuff right now,” Gruden said. “We’ll probably keep him out of the team stuff for OTAs but hopefully he’ll be full go at training camp.”

If Galette was healthy, he could provide a pass-rush boost for a team that needs it, but that’s kind of hard to count on at this point.

Gruden also said it’s possible that veteran defensive back DeAngelo Hall could start the year on the physically unable to perform list, after he tore his ACL last September. There’s still a chance he could be ready sooner, as he continues his career progression as a safety.

    contributing “again”?

    He hasn’t played a single down for the Redskins yet, lol.

    I really hope he gets on the field this year, I want to see him “whip” some tail!

    I’m sure the Redskins hope he stays off the beach this summer…

    he’s now on the outside looking in and a longshot to even make it.

    Gallette is an awful human being. I’m shocked DeAngelo Hall is still playing.

    Really good example of karma. Also, our karma for having to keep paying him after he left the Saints.

    The Saints let this guy go at the right time ! Lord Knows they had enough high priced Veterans who didn’t play,
    Such as Jarius Byrd !!

    He’ll have to answer for his latest arrest- even if he can finally be healthy enough to make the roster and finally play a down as a Skin, he might be suspended by the Commish.

    Junior will find a way to get out of this season and to cash more Redskins’ checks – I hope when he gets hurt again it is career ending – I loathe this jerk and want him gone.

    Been a true Redskin fan since 1972 and I dont have any faith at all in Gallette! He will tear something on the day before training camp like he always do.D Hall is a good guy and all but he will be lucky to even make the team this year!

    If you hear an interview with him, you can’t help but to not only like but also to root for this guy. After being injured and paid well for both years, as soon as he could this offseason he immediately signed for the league minimum and said he owes the Redskins that. If he goes down again, at least it is at the veteran minimum. If not, I bet he comes up big for the team.
    Good Luck, kid.

    Since Cousins is supposedly leaving after this season, wouldn’t it have made sense to trade him and sign Kaepernick?

    Kaepernick’s numbers are better than most people realize and it doesn’t matter that he has a vegan diet.

    I think the Redskins should cut bait on Gallette. He’s been nothing but dollars out the door with no return.
    I’d like to see D’Angelo healthy this year if for no other reason than some leadership in the backfield.
