Bashaud Breeland injury update
|2015-08-24 11:03:40.0- -||
Breeland's right knee buckled when he was defending wide receiver Quinton Dunbar in a one on one drill.
He recently returned to practice on Sunday afternoon and went through most of the team drills including, 7 on 7s, 11 on 11s.
Breeland worked hard to get back faster than anticipated by the team doctors as the prognosis was that he would be out of action for an estimated four to six weeks.
“I did a lot of treatment on my own,” Breeland said via redskins.com. “When I’m home I do a lot of step ups to try to strengthen it and things like that. When I come out here, I do the speed ladder. I’m a DB, so my feet aren’t going to really change that much."
He says that he feels no pain from the injury. “I just took it one day at a time,” he said. “Last day of camp it started feeling pretty good, and I started doing a little bit of drills and cutting. There was no pain, so it was pretty good.”
Breeland had 71 tackles, 17 pass break-ups, two forced fumbles and two interceptions in his rookie campaign with the Redskins. The second-year pro is slated to start opposite Chris Culliver in the Redskins' secondary or at nickelback.
During his collegiate career, Breeland had 159 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, six interceptions for 142 yards in 37 games (24 starts).
