RG3 “ready to move on,” do more in practice

Robert Griffin III AP

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III must be feeling good, and getting bored.

Griffin said Monday, via the Associated Press, that he was “ready to move on,” to the next phase of his rehab from knee surgery, and do more in practice.

Griffin said he’s had no soreness or swelling in his right knee, and hopes to do more than the 7-on-7s he’s currently limited to, perhaps moving onto team drills next week.

“Coach will tell you something else, but I’m ready to move on,” Griffin said.

Every indication has been that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is wary of letting his star go too fast, too soon.

Griffin isn’t expected to play in the preseason, and keeping the reins pulled back on his quarterback has been Shanahan’s plan, as difficult as it may be sometimes.

    The best player in football history can’t be kept down. The only thing more amazing that RG3’s physical gifts are his personal character, smarts and inspirational leadership. #RedskinsandRG3areunstoppable.

    Give him the next round of HGH and he should be full go in a week or two.

    Never been a fan of the Skins, but hoping for a big season for this kid. Dont get me wrong, I hope he sits out the Sunday Night game in November against my team.

    I love the fresh talent at the QB position around the league (finally.) It should be an exciting season.

    I’m in the DC area and it’s really obvious from quotes that I’m reading (tweets and whatnot) that it’s RGIII himself who is pushing for a fast return and Shanahan that is holding him back.

    That said, yes, it was Coach’s responsibility to keep him out of that Seattle game and even though RGIII would have been very upset he should have just made him sit. I think that’s what he’s doing now.

    In terms of putting him on the PUP list, it’s funny…that sounds like the kind of thing a fan of one of the Redskins first few opponents would advocate…so that you all would have an easier path to victory. It’s amusing to hear all these almost hysterical pleas to sit RGIII down for the season opener…guarantee those are generally made by fans of other teams hostile to the Redskins’ interest.

    Why does this guy get more press than Kaep or Wilson or Luck? It feels like PFT is willing this guy to succeed.

    Ok, you say Sunday night in November? Well there’s a thursday nighter against Nov. 7th against the Vikings and a Monday nighter Nov. 25th against the 49ers, but no Sunday night game in November…so i’m guessing you mean Monday Night November 25th????

    Coach Shanny is attempting a little PR repair after putting RG out there too soon last year.

    Of course it’s easy to be too protective of a QB during the off season with no games but believe me when the games start counting, Shanny will have RG on the field ready or not.

  25. peytonsneck18 says: Aug 5, 2013 4:45 PM

    IRG3 wont last a decade….

    I love me some redskins fans. If the NFL had more like y’all it would be a pretty fun league.

    Don’t change a thing.

    ___________________
    Because Griffin is more polarizing. Just count the number of negative posts on this article (hell, just count the number of posts, period.). He’s a “running” quarterback, a black quarterback, a Heisman winner, and the new franchise quarterback of the historically worst team in the NFL’s most heated and rivalrous division– not to mention the size of the NFC East fan bases, all four of which are in the top ten richest teams in the NFL.

    Basically, Griffin attracts as many haters as he does fans, and stories with the word “Griffin” in the title have an uncanny way of making it into the “PFT Most Commented” box. Traffic to articles translates directly to dollars for the writers, and if a certain player has a talent for doubling your paycheck, why not keep writing about him?

    As the Jets have shown us, there’s no correlation between “more press” and success. And the only thing they are “willing this guy to do” is continue attracting crowds.

    Dude, THE NFL is willing this guy to succeed!

    Peytonsneck18 is the redskin fan that jumped ship when they sucked and now hes bitter cause theyre better now.

    If your Coach says something then stop undermining him at the podium, Robert. I’m tired of the philosophy of manhood speeches from a twenty something. Good player. Good kid. But he needs to concentrate on fitting in his breeches, not getting too big for them.
