Photo by Keith Allison Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman told the Washington Post that he believes Robert Griffin III is about 90 percent healthy “Right at seven months is where I felt I was healthy,” Grossman recalled. “I’ve talked to him – he’s done it before – he feels like he’s ready to go. I would say he’s 90 percent capable of doing everything.” Grosman thinks RGIII got better after watching him in 11-on-11 drills. “I actually saw him get better,” Grossman said. “His drops and everything were a lot smoother, his reads were quicker, his understanding of the offense and the passing game was more second nature to him.” Grossman says Griffin is always happy. “He’s always in a good mood,” Grossman said. “That’s one thing that you just enjoy being around him because he always has a smile on his face, he’s always laughing, but he’s competitive at the same time which is really a good balance.”   Need NFL Tickets?
