Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has said in the past that he plans on being a full participant in the team’s training camp, but as he continues to recover from his torn ACL, there is still no return date scheduled. Griffin has yet to meet with the medical staff to determine what his workout schedule should be during camp.
While the team is still waiting to decide on how to handle Griffin, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network has said the Redskins may use a schedule similar to that of Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson from a year ago.
Peterson started camp on the PUP list before being activated and going on to have one of the best NFL single seasons of all-time for a running back.
Griffin is not guaranteed the same kind of success that Peterson had a year ago, but it will be interesting to see how he bounces back after the serious knee injury. Griffin looked like a star before going down, so the Redskins hope to have that RG3 return to the field.
Whether or not Griffin is a full participant in training camp or whether he takes the field for a preseason game remains to be seen, but if he wants to be 100 percent for the start of the season, the Redskins and Griffin will have to find the appropriate way for him to knock off the rust.
