Robert Griffin III Expects to Be Ready for Training Camp

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters in Ashburn Thursday afternoon that he expects to be ready to fully participate in training camp next month.

"Without a doubt," Griffin added.

RGIII has been taking part in the Redskins' OTAs but has not officially participated in any team drills. Yet Griffin is confident that he will be ready to do so when training camp begins July 25 in Richmond.

“It’s just how I feel and how it’s progressed,” he told reporters. "Over the last three weeks, I've had a lot of progress and I feel a lot better.”

Coach Mike Shanahan, however, will leave that decision up to the doctors.

“You always want somebody to have goals, that’s for sure, and you want them to come back as soon as he’s ready to go,” Shanahan said. “But the doctor’s got to OK him. From the beginning, they’ve talked about recovery time being anywhere from seven months to nine months. I think Aug. 9 is seven months, and so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
