He has missed nearly a month of practice time due to a lingering hamstring injury.

Despite the absence, Landry looked sharp in practice, recording an interception.

"He looked pretty good," defensive coordinator Greg Blache said after practice. "It was good to see him out there running around a little bit. I don't know how much he can do or how soon it will be to get him up to speed. But it was good to see him out there."

Landry is not expected to play in this Thursday's preseason finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Blache has said that he may not play any projected defensive starters on Thursday.

Landry will likely make his 2008 debut in the Redskins' season opener against the New York Giants on Sept. 4.

Blache admitted to some concern that Landry might be rusty for the Redskins' regular season opener on Sept. 4 against the New York Giants.

But ensuring Landry is healthy remains the top priority.

Said head coach Jim Zorn: "He's going to come along now," head coach Jim Zorn said. "Just getting back out there is going to give him some confidence."
