"Like, first play coming out of the rain delay we had," Royal said. "I made a quick move. (I hate) that it happened, but I'm past it now."
However, it took Royal and the training a little while to figure this out. But Royal was committed to getting back to the field as soon as he could, which meant he took to an aggressive rehab program.
Royal had been used in Josh McDaniels' three wide receiver sets, but John Fox and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy will move away from that. That's what made it easy to trade Jabar Gaffney to the Redskins for Jeremy Jarmon. While Royal is the starter at the moment, watch out for second-year receiver Eric Decker to challenge him throughout camp.
