NFL Injury Report:
The main concern of the Washington Redskins is quarterback
Robert Griffin III’s surgically-repaired right knee. So far, the knee hasn’t
been cause for concern, as the signal caller made it through his first week of
practice without suffering a setback. With the successful first week under
Griffin’s belt, head coach Mike Shanahan told Tarik El-Bashir of The Washington
Post that he’s ready to put his QB through the next phase of his game plan.
“I thought he had a good week,” the coach added. “The best
part about it there wasn’t any setback. You have a plan going into your first
week and you’re hoping you can execute that game plan. We were able to do that.
Next week we have another game plan for him, and we’ll see if he’s able to go
While it’s unclear what different phases Shanahan has in
store for Griffin, it was clear that the head coach was pleased with the
quarterback’s first week of practice. During phase one, Griffin participated in
7-on-7 drills, bumping his workload up from eight reps to 16. It’s unknown when
Griffin will join 11-on-11 drills, but El-Bashir notes that every day he gets
through healthy is another step closer to being fully cleared.
Even after he receives clearance and starts participating
fully in training camp, there’s still a good chance that Griffin will see
limited action during the preseason, if any at all. The Minnesota Vikings took
the same approach with running back Adrian Peterson, and that worked out fairly
well last season.
