Colt Brennan, who arrived in town yesterday, said he feels he has recovered from hip surgery, and he should be ready to compete fully in training camp.
Brennan said he participated in every Redskin OTA, although he was limited in certain drills.
Brennan has an autograph session today (1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Barefoot League store on Kapahulu Avenue), then he leaves tonight for Denver. He will meet with the Colorado specialist who performed his hip surgery.
Brennan, who weighs 225, has been told he needs to trim down to 212 or 213 pounds. That will happen once he receives full clearance from the Colorado specialist and can resume a strenuous running program.
Brennan also said he wants to meet with 5-year-old Joshua Miyazawa, a heart patient who has been invited to play tee ball on the South Lawn of the White House next week. They will be in the D.C. area at the same time.

Big things are expected of UH’s defense this season. It’s great to see how so many leaders have emerged during summer workouts. The secondary has some talented players, such as safety Erik “E-Rob” Robinson, cornerback Ryan Mouton and safety Keao Monteilh.
Mouton has one cornerback’s job locked down. JoPierre Davis, Calvin Roberts, Jameel Dowling and Jeramy Bryant are competing for the other job.

Here’s Dowling, a transfer from Oregon who has been awarded a scholarship:
Strongside linebacker Blaze Soares, whose stinger is less problematic, is expected to provide a physical boost this season:
Left end David Veikune and right end John Fonoti, who goes on scholarship in August, are expected to provide an aggressive pass rush. Here’s Veikune:
