The Washington Redskins recently completed their first preseason game. While quarterback Robert Griffin III was dressed for the exhibition opener, he didn’t participate, as expected. He’s unlikely to see time at all during the preseason, as the Redskins will instead prepare him for Week 1 of the regular season during practice. However, it’s not clear when Griffin will take the next step in his recovery, as head coach Mike Shanahan told reporters – including Mike Jones of The Washington Post – that there’s no timetable for when his quarterback will take the next step. To this point, Griffin has been limited to 7-on-7 drills during training camp. He’s expected to begin full offense walk-throughs, but this won’t be while a defense is on the field. After that, he’ll eventually return to 11-on-11, which is as game-like as practice gets, but Shanahan said there’s no timeframe on when this will happen. All the coach would say is that he knows Griffin is hoping to return as soon as possible. Shanahan said: “He worked out beforehand, about half hour before the game, and I said to him, ‘If you’d like to go through pregame warmups, you’re welcome to,’ as I said to a number of our players. A number of our players had gotten a full workout earlier, and everyone had a right to. Robert wanted to get more of a workout. Robert wanted to get some more work in. It was good to see him out there.” It’s good for Griffin to want to get back on the field as soon as possible, but it’s also good for the Redskins to continue to take their time with the franchise quarterback. Barring setback, Griffin will take the next step forward soon enough, sit out more preseason games and be ready for Week 1. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
