Redskins' Galette inching toward return, relieved about civil suit

RICHMOND -- Junior Galette won’t play in the Redskins’ preseason opener this week, but he’s starting to make visible progress as he works his way back from torn pectoral muscle.

In fact, Monday was a particularly big day for the veteran linebacker. He achieved a milestone in his recovery when he donned pads and participated in non-contact drills for the first time since signing with Washington last month. He also scored a victory off the field when a civil suit accusing him of domestic violence was dismissed.

“The truth came out,” Galette said of the dismissal. “It’s unfortunate that it took this long. The court system served me justice. I’m happy, of course. I knew it was going to get dropped because I never did anything wrong. I’m happy to have my name cleared. But it’s unfortunate that you have to go through all this stuff, and all the negative stigma that surrounds your name with that whole domestic [violence] thing, when it was never really that case.”

Now, the 27-year-old pass rusher can focus on getting his professional life back on track, as well.

“You have to be patient, be a little cautious,” Galette said of his recovery from the pec injury he suffered earlier this offseason as a member of the Saints. “It’s feeling good. Every day there’s progress. We’re just being cautious and being real careful because you can’t afford to have any setbacks right now.”

Galette said he plans to continue to ramp up his participation in practice in the coming days. He also said he expects to play at some point in the preseason, though he’s not sure when that will happen.

In the meantime, Galette plans to continue working hard while savoring the second chance he’s been granted by the Redskins.  

“I’m here,” he said. “Everything happened for a reason. I’m here with a great organization that’s on the rise, and I’m ready to play some good ball."

Galette also thanked his new teammates for supporting him since his arrival earlier this month.

“I'm around a really good locker room and these guys have really embraced me, taken me in," he said, adding that Terrance Knighton, Chris Baker and DeAngelo Hall have been especially welcoming. "It's a lot easier when guys are pulling for you [instead] of taking jabs at you and being negative about it. You're around a second family." 

“It was an emotional cycle for me the past six months,” Galette added. “But here I am now, and I’m just blessed and happy to be here.”
