| RGIII cleared for camp -- Mon Jul 22 3:15 pm --|
Continues to remain ahead of schedule
|Doctors have cleared Robert Griffin III to practice at the start of the Redskins training camp this week. He was supposed to undergo his testing Wednesday, but Dr. James Andrews examined him late last week and recommended the Redskins clear the quarterback. HC Mike Shanahan ran Griffin through a workout of his own Monday, requiring him to do a series of quarterback-specific drills. Griffin performed well and Shanahan cleared him to return to the field this week when camp gets underway. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: The Post says the plan is for RG3 to take part in a regular workload of 7-on-7 drills from the start of camp, but he will not do much, if any, 11-on-11 work right away. Griffin did not participate in offseason practices after undergoing surgery in January to repair ACL and LCL tears, but appears well on his way to taking the field without limitation by the start of the regular season.
