Attn. Redskins Media: No More Tweeting For You

You can look at the Redskins practicing all you want. Just don't try tweeting about it.

Since the Redskins' training camp began more than two weeks ago, reporters have been allowed to tweet to their hearts' content.  No more, says team spokesman Zack Bolno.

He said the Redskins don't want sensitive information about injuries and strategy being shared during practice, Redskins Insider Jason Reid reports.

According to Bolno, the team's official web site and 980 AM (which is owned by Redskins owner, Dan Snyder) are exempt from the ban.

Other teams that don't allow media members to tweet from practice include the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions.

Reporters will still be allowed to update blogs, though they'll have to leave the practice fields to do so, Bolno added.
