    Yes, BB has said that if they can't pass the conditioning test then he can't put them out on the field.

    Washington failed the conditioning run?

    I heard on Sirius NFL radio this morning that the reason Washington was on the PUP was because he initially failed the conditioning run. Based on the conversation (they were talking about the difference between being medically healthy to return and in football shape and how the Pats require their players to pass the conditioning run to be healthy enough to play), I don't know if it was speculation or a statement of fact (or at least statement of sources). It would make sense since he was only on the PUP for one day.

    If Washington did in fact fail the conditioning run, that is yet another black mark on his less than stellar beginning with the Patriots. Again assuming this is the case, he is starting to look like another David Terrell - a failed reclaimation project.

    Re: Washington failed the conditioning run?

    He passed it before camp is official..he won't be missing a day of camp because of that. I really do NOT think it is that big a deal. If there is a conditioning problem ongoing, that is more important and MIGHT BE an issue. This one run, is not.

    Re: Washington failed the conditioning run?

    I think it is a bigger deal than you think if he did indeed fail it. Assuming Washington performs better in camp and the preseason than he did in minicamp, this could be a tight WR race. In that scenario, Belichick and McDaniels are going to be looking at every reason why they should keep one player over the other. Things like whether they showed up for the run in shape could play a factor in that situation. Maybe not.

    If it wasn't a tight competition (like Antwain Smith a few years back) or Washington wasn't clearly the worst WR in minicamp, I think it wouldn't be a big deal. I think the fact that Washington is entering camp far behind Caldwell and Gaffney in picking up the offense and catching balls, failing the run can only hurt him.

    Re: Washington failed the conditioning run?

    Actually how can you disagree with him? If failing the conditioning run is actually the case.

    The guy just got a big hefty contract if he sticks with the team and hes going to come in here out of shape?

    That is a black mark in my book.

    Who is the scout who picked Washington as a good fit for the Patriots? I think listening to Chad Johnson for the past 4 years has made him lose his sense of reality. Like someone said before, it's like David Terrible all over again.

    Technically Belichick originally came out and raved about Washington when he came out of the draft noting that his injury history is long but was worth the risk because of potentially what he could become.

    I don't recall anyone being put on that list brcause of the run.

    I'm not saying it didn't happen, but i don't think so.
