WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Robert Griffin is back on the field and the knee is responding well to rehab by the looks of it, if video evidence from the Redskins first voluntary OTA is any indication.
The quarterback was seen walking, running and sprinting all over the field in Ashburn Thursday, showing no signs of setbacks since having surgery to repair the knee he injured in the Redskins’ playoff loss to the Seahawks in January.
If you’re keeping score at home, it’s taken less than five months for RGIII to return to drills, demonstrating he can both run, and plant and throw off his right knee after tearing both the ACL and PCL on Jan. 6.
“My goal is to be out there for training camp,” Griffin told reporters after practice. Training camp by the way, 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 1′ as his Adidas ad campaign suggests.
