RGIII expected to take on more in camp

Washington Post - [Full Article]

The practice activities of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III are expected to be intensified in the coming days at the Washington Redskins’ training camp, according to two people with knowledge of the team’s planning.

One person familiar with the situation said it is expected that Griffin’s first drills against an 11-man defense will take place on Tuesday. It wasn’t clear how significant his workload would be, however.

Another person with knowledge of the Redskins’ broad planning for Griffin said that Griffin, barring a setback, is likely to take part in some full-team drills “soon” but did not say precisely when that is expected to happen. Both of those people spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Fantasy Impact: 

HC Mike Shanahan has declined to say publicly when he will allow Griffin to participate in full-team drills at training camp. But, RGIII has been lobbying for more responsibilities in practice and looks like he may have won out. Griffin III continues to amaze the Skins with his recovery, but keep in mind he is expected to wear a knee brace this year, which will likely limit him at least a bit. He's still considered a solid pick around the sixth round.
