Landry hurt in team-building outing

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - A paintball shot in the groin left rookie LaRon Landry unable to practice when the Washington Redskins opened their minicamp Friday.

The No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft was injured during a team-building outing Wednesday, when coach Joe Gibbs allowed the players to leave early at the end of the voluntary spring workouts. Some players went bowling or had lunch together, while many of the defensive players went to play paintball.

"I didn't know paintball was that dangerous," linebacker Marcus Washington said. "I hope it wasn't friendly fire."

Landry was on the sidelines when practice began, but within minutes he left and began laboring slowly up the hill toward the team's main building, appearing to favor his left leg.
Gibbs said Landry should be fine after a couple of days' rest.

"It's kind of bizarre," Gibbs said. "Almost anything can happen in life, so every now and then something like that does happen."

REACT: Wow. Simply wow. Getting shot in the crotch by a paintball. That's gotta hurt. Maybe next year their teambuilding activity can be a pillow fight.

The Washington Post did not report the whole story. Sean Taylor couldn't find one of his four-wheelers again. He accused Landry of stealing it, and when Landry refused to admit it, Taylor fired a warning shot at his baby factory.
