Around the League has already warned against over-analyzing the reports coming out of OTAs, which will be in full swing this week. The only things worth monitoring are player progression and, of course, injuries.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports the collision kept the 59-year-old Shanahan on the ground for several minutes. Though he remained on the practice field, his scheduled session with the media after practice was canceled.
"He showed some toughness. Got up. Stuck it out. So that's a (trademark) of our team," rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III said after practice. "It was pretty scary to see two guys running, full-speed, smack dab into your coach. We're glad he got up, glad he was fine. And hopefully he's fine tomorrow, 'cause usually hits like that don't kick in until the next day."
Fortunately for Shanahan, the Redskins do not have an OTA scheduled for Tuesday. They're set to return to the practice field Wednesday and Thursday.
