Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III avoided any setbacks to his knee during the offseason and that’s continued through the first full week of training camp.
Coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin had a “good week” because he’s remained healthy and has been able to execute everything in the plan the team drew up for him. Shanahan said that he thought Griffin would be able to move onto the next phase of his preparation for the regular season after the Redskins play the Titans on Thursday, although he declined to give any specifics about what that next phase might turn out to be.
“After the game, we have a little bit of a different game plan,” Shanahan said, via Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington. “If there is no setback, I’ll share that with you next week. The reason I don’t tell you at the beginning is if there is a setback, I’m not going to tell you anyway.”
Griffin has been participating in individual drills and 7-on-7 team drills with his workload increasing incrmentally. He hasn’t done any 11-on-11 work to this point, which may be a hint about what will be involved in Griffin’s next phase. Assuming that goes as well as phase one, there won’t be much mystery left about whether or not Griffin’s on the field for Week One.
