NFL Injury Report:
Redskins sophomore quarterback Robert Griffin III has yet to suffer a setback
to his reconstructed knee through the first week of training camp, according to
NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. During the 2012 regular season, Griffin suffered a torn ACL and LCL in what would become known as the most scrutinized right knee in America. Remarkably, he only missed one game last
year including their home playoff loss to Seattle; a fact which became the focus
of much debate--and media scrutiny--for Griffin as well as Redskins head coach
coaching staff indicated that Griffin will now move to the next phase of his
rehab. This is expected to include gradually increasing his involvement and
reps during 7-on-7 drills in camp, as well as allowing for more freedom in his
training and physical therapy. Griffin is a world class athlete when healthy
and can truly be a game-changer at the quarterback position. Clearly, the
Redskins coaching staff will reiterate the importance of having a healthy
quarterback and teach this talented young man to slide or get out of bounds
without taking a hit.
RGIII will see these running limitations as a way of proving his capabilities
as a quarterback. Griffin himself will be the first to tell you that he is a pocket
passer with the ability to run, not a running back with the ability to pass.
Last year, he threw only 5 interceptions during the regular season while compiling
20 touchdown passes. He is already playing at a pro bowl level in his young
career and this recovery time should be seen as an opportunity for him to
really hone his skills as a franchise quarterback.
