Mike Shanahan Says Redskins QB Robert Griffin Had ‘A Good Week’
Coach Mike Shanahan said Saturday he thinks that quarterback Robert Griffin III had “a good week” of practices at the Washington Redskins training camp while being limited to seven-on-seven passing drills and other scaled-back activities.
Shanahan declined to specify when Griffin might be permitted to participate in full team drills as part of his comeback from knee surgery in January. But Shanahan seemed to hint that might be unlikely to happen before the Redskins’ opening preseason game Thursday night at Tennessee.
“Our plan [for Griffin’s practice-field work] goes all the way through Tennessee,” Shanahan said. “Then we have another plan after the Tennessee game.”
Shanahan said later: “After the game, we’ve got a little bit different game plan. If there’s no setback, I’ll share that with you next week when we implement it. The reason why I don’t tell you at the beginning, if there is a setback, I’m not gonna tell you, anyhow.”
Shanahan previously has said he does not plan to play Griffin in any preseason games.
Redskins players have Sunday off, then return to work with practices Monday and Tuesday. Griffin said earlier this week he hoped to be allowed to take part in full team drills next week.
