As expected, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III participated in his first 11-on-11 drills of 2013 on Wednesday according to the Associated Press.
Griffin had a solid day of 11-on-11 drills, completing 7 of 10 passes and throwing one interception. He wore a protective brace on his right knee and though he did not face much pressure from the defense, Griffin was mobile in the pocket.
"He looks great, right at seven months is where I felt like I was healthy when I tore my ACL. He's pretty much ready to go. I would say he's 90 percent capable of doing everything," third string quarterback Rex Grossman said of Griffin.
Robert Griffin III's return to the gridiron has created a lot of buzz at Redskins camp this summer, and his return to 11-on-11 drills Wednesday proved to be no different. 10,111 fans attended Wednesday's practice to see how Griffin looked in his first 11-on-11 action since his season ended last January. The news also attracted more national media coverage than usual. Head coach Mike Shanahan was positive about Griffin's return to 11-on-11 action, without committing to his status for the season opener. Shanahan called Griffin's day of practice the "next step" toward playing Week 1.
