“One thing I don’t want to do is see anything go too quick,” Shanahan said, per the Washington Examiner. “Mother nature will take its course. That takes time. The thing I love about Robert is that he works the muscles around it and he loves to work and he does everything you ask him to do and then some to get himself ready. But there is a time frame and the ligament takes time to heal. We have to make sure he doesn’t go too quick. We don’t want himt o do anything too quickly because then he can set it back.”
Shanahan says Griffin won’t play until he’s completely healthy.
“The thing we’ll make sure of is that Robert never plays if he’s not 100 percent,” Shanahan said. “If he tells me something I won’t believe him this year compared to last year.”
