RGIII: ‘My Goal Is To Be Out There For Training Camp’
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Robert Griffin is back on the field and his surgically repaired knee is responding well to rehab by the looks of it. His “All In For Week One” campaign is on track if video evidence from the Washington Redskins first voluntary Organized Team Activity is any indication.
The quarterback was seen sprinting all over the field in Ashburn, showing no signs of setbacks since having the knee operated on after the Redskins’ playoff loss to the Seahawks in January.
If you’re keeping score at home, it’s taken less than five months for Griffin to return to drills and demonstrate he can both run, plant and throw off his right knee.
“My goal is to be out there for training camp,” Griffin told reporters after practice.
Training camp begins in late July.
He said the knee feels great and just two phases remain in his rehabilitation process, which concludes with explosive running and cutting.
Griffin and Shanahan both came under fire in that Wild Card loss in January; Griffin for not pulling himself out of the game when he tweaked his knee and Shanahan for allowing him to return to the field.
“I can’t change my mindset, but I can be smarter,” Griffin said.
Maybe he is ‘All in for Week One’ as his Adidas ad campaign suggests.
