The practice activities of quarterback Robert Griffin III are expected to be intensified in the coming days at the Washington Redskins’ training camp according to two people with knowledge of the team’s planning. One person familiar with the situation said it is expected that Griffin’s first drills against an 11-man defense will take place on Tuesday. It wasn’t clear how significant his workload would be however. Another person with knowledge of the Redskins’ broad planning for Griffin said that Griffin barring a setback is likely to take part in some full-team drills “soon” but did not say precisely when that is expected to happen. Both of those people spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. It is not clear how firm the Redskins’ plans for Griffin’s activities are. Coach Mike Shanahan has said he would stick to his training-camp plan for Griffin’s practice workload unless Griffin suffers a setback. Shanahan has declined to say publicly when he will allow Griffin to participate in full-team drills at training camp. Griffin is expected to have at least one more day of scaled-back practice activities when the Redskins return to work Monday at their training camp facility in Richmond. The second-year quarterback appears eager to take the next step in his comeback from knee surgery in January. Griffin said last week that he felt he was ready to have his practice workload increased. But Shanahan said then that he would stick to his plan for Griffin’s activities in training camp while refusing to say specifically when he will permit Griffin to take part in 11-on-11 drills.
