RGIII ready for bigger role in practice

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Robert Griffin III says he’s “ready to move on” and take a bigger role in practice as he works his way back from knee surgery.

The Washington Redskins quarterback said Monday he’s had no soreness or swelling in his right knee during the first week-and-a-half of training camp.

Coach Mike Shanahan has limited Griffin to 7-on-7 drills during camp, keeping the quarterback away from 11-on-11 sessions.

Griffin says he can only accomplish so much in the 7-on-7s.

Says Griffin: “Coach will tell you something else, but I’m ready to move on.”

Griffin said he’s hopeful to start 11-on-11 drills next week.

Fantasy Impact: 

RGIII continues to have no signs of soreness or swelling in his right knee, according to the story. The Redskins are naturally taking it easy with him, but he's obviously ready to take it up a notch. Looks like no issues with him starting in Week 1 of the season. Remember, we did have a report last week that said he's going to wear a brace at least for this season.
