Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is working to recover from his torn ACL that was suffered at the end of last season, and he has been passing nearly every test with flying colors if you are to believe the reports. What has yet to be said, however, is whether or not Griffin will be available for the start of the team’s training camp later this month.
According to Chris Russell of ESPN 980, “somebody very involved on the medical side” has said that the team has yet to set a date or location for Griffin to meet with the medical team.
Once Griffin has that evaluation, his status for camp will be determined.
While all reports about Griffin are glowing with optimism, it still would not be a shock to see the team hold him out of the early goings of camp.
Griffin is far too valuable to the team to expose him to re-injuring his knee, so they need to proceed with caution. It was the team’s own carelessness that got Griffin hurt just a season ago, so they need to make sure that he is 100 percent before they put their franchise quarterback back in the line of fire.
We should know for sure whether or not Griffin gets the greenlight for camp in a matter of days.
Redskins camp opens on July 25.
