It looks like Wednesday is the day for Robert Griffin III

According to a report in the Washington Post, Dr. James Andrews will “extensively” examine Griffin’s right knee on that day to see if it is ready for the rigors of training camp. The Redskins start camp on Thursday in Richmond, Virginia.

The report also states that people close to Griffin are saying that the quarterback has been running and cutting without pain or limitations. This jibes with earlier reports from a different outlet.

During the spring, Griffin stated that it was his goal to be ready for the start of training camp. But that is up to Andrews, who performed the reconstructive surgery on the knee on January 9. And, even if Griffin is cleared by Andrews it will be up to coach Mike Shanahan to decide if the second-year star participates in practices fully, partially, or not at all.

There appears to be little question that Griffin will be the starting quarterback when the Redskins take on the Eagles on Sept. 9 to open their season. But what might happen between now and then is very much up in the air.
