Patriots, Redskins to hold joint practices

The New England Patriots and Washington Redskins announced Monday that the teams will hold three days of joint practices at the Redskins’ training camp facility in Richmond, Virginia, from Aug. 4-6 in advance of their preseason opener on Aug. 7.

For the Patriots, it could be the first of two joint practice sessions this preseason in back-to-back weeks. The Patriots and Eagles held joint sessions last August and could do so again this year, as they are set to face off in a preseason game at Gillette Stadium on Aug. 15.
