- Washington doesn’t want to subject Griffin to any hits this summer.
- HC Mike Shanhan is known for being cautious with players coming off major injuries.
Griffin was cleared by doctors to return to practice on Monday and the team put him through what was referred to as an extensive workout.
It makes plenty of sense for the Redskins to proceed with extra caution when it comes to their franchise quarterback.
Robert Griffin III tweeted Monday morning that doctors have cleared the young star to resume practicing following his ACL tear suffered just a remarkable 7 months ago.
- Jeff Darlington reports that Griffin is expected to participate in 7-on-7 drills to start camp and then ease into team drills.
- Albert Breer adds that a club source has informed him that Washington will keep RGIII active and not on their physically unable to perform list.
Griffin tore his ACL in January’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round. This injury usually results in a recovery time close to a year. Griffin, however, is apparently healthy in nearly half that time.
Perhaps the three scariest words in professional sports – Dr. James Andrews – was marveled with Griffin’s recovery process, calling him “superhuman” during his recovery process.
RG3‘s tweet mentions “coach,” A.K.A. Mike Shanahan, will ease him back into the game. It’s unknown how many snaps or what kind of drills Griffin will be participating in when the Redskins open training camp later this week.
