Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters today that he’s ready to do more than 7 on 7 drills during training camp, per the Washington Post.
Robert Griffin III says he’s “ready to move on” and take a bigger role in practice as he works his way back from knee surgery.
Griffin says his knee is doing well and he hasn’t had any swelling so far.
Coach Mike Shanahan has limited Griffin to 7-on-7 drills during camp, keeping the quarterback away from 11-on-11 sessions.
Griffin says he can only accomplish so much in the 7-on-7s.
Says Griffin: “Coach will tell you something else, but I’m ready to move on.”
Griffin is hoping he can do 11 on 11 drills next week.
I love Griffin’s desire to compete, but he needs to relax. The last thing he needs to do is put himself in harm’s way and possibly re-injuure his knee. One more tear to his knee could end his career.
