For the first 10 days of training camp Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been limited to 7-on-7 drills, in addition to individual work. He has gone from throwing eight passes in 7-on-7s to 17 and will continue doing so through Tuesday. But when they return from their preseason opener at Tennessee on Thursday, there may be a new plan.
Griffin has pronounced himself ready for some “real” action. The new plan won’t be revealed until later in the week, after coaches dissect yet another week in Robert Griffin III’s recovery, but R G – 3 knows what he wants it to include: working in full-team drills.
And that would represent a good sign for Griffin in his desire to start the Sept. 9 season opener. Of course, those decisions will be made by the coaching staff and medical personnel but Griffin has made no secret that he wants to be on the field opening night in DC against the Philadelphia Eagles. Many feel it was Griffin’s desire to rush back from his original injury against Baltimore last season that led t his current situation, so the question is, will the Redskins rush him back again just to satisfy Griffin.
