The Redskins start camp on July 25 in Richmond, but it’s still unclear whether or not quarterback Robert Griffin III will join his teammates for the first practice of the summer or if he’ll make his camp debut at a later date.
The answer to that question won’t come until the Redskins medical staff evaluates Griffin’s knee and determines if he gets the green light. Chris Russell of ESPN 980 reports that “somebody very involved on the medical side” told him that the team has yet to set a date or location to make that evaluation.
Given the dwindling time between now and July 25, you’d expect that such an examination would be conducted in the not too distant future. And, based on what Russell’s source had to say, that examination has a good chance of leaving the Redskins with smiles on their faces. Word is that Griffin “smashes” every test that the Redskins put in front of him and that the team is “astonished” so far by the quarterback’s recovery.
Reports about Griffin’s health have been consistently glowing so there’s no surprise to hear another round of the same song. Since we’re actually within spitting distance of camp at this point, the reports carry a bit more weight and the chances that Griffin will miss any significant amount of time will continue to drop as long as signs of struggles with health remain impossible to find.
