Mike Shanahan says Robert Griffin III played well this week


One of the biggest stories of NFL training camp is the recovery of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. According to head coach Mike Shanahan, Griffin had a good week of practice and looks solid on his injured knee.

Here are Shanahan’s thoughts, via The Washington Post:

I thought he had a good week. The best part about it [was] there wasn’t any setback. As you have a plan going into your first week, you’re hoping you can execute that game plan. We were able to do that. Next week we have another game plan for him and we’ll see if he’s able to go through that.

 

The key for us is not to push him too quick. You don’t know how he’s going to react to different drills. But right now there has been no swelling. He feels very good. And that’s one of the reasons why he hasn’t had a day off.

Of course, there were many irate Redskins fans who blamed Shanahan for allowing Griffin to get hurt in the first place. Hopefully the finger pointing has subsided and we can all get back to enjoying the NFL’s most popular quarterback playing for the NFL’s most offensively named team.
