Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, as expected, passed his conditioning test today.
But he’s not quite ready to practice fully, as he said he expected to participate in 7-on-7 work, but not the full amount of team drills.
“The current plan is patience is the key,” Griffin said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
That patience apparently will keep him out of preseason games, as he said he didn’t expect to play in the preseason games.
“Unless it’s a necessity, I don’t think I’ll play in the preseason,” he said. “Unless coach says so.”
While there’s a risk involved in sending your quarterback into the regular season opener without any live action, the greater risk would be Griffin having a setback in games that don’t matter.
