RG3 participates fully in practice, feels encouraged
Robert Griffin III participated fully in practice for the first time since injuring his right knee against the Ravens, Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday afternoon.
“What doctors will do is they’ll evaluate him tomorrow, and hopefully there’s no setback, no swelling with the knee,” Shanahan said. “He’ll be evaluated through the week, and if the doctors tell me the [ligament] is ready to go, I’ll announce him as ready to go.”
Griffin was limited in practice all of last week and did not take snaps with the first time. He was inactive for the first time against the Browns.
Shanahan said Griffin took first team reps Wednesday.
“Last week he was moving pretty good, too, but he did look good today,” Shanahan said. “He looked pretty close to full speed.”
Griffin, who was upset that he was not allowed to play in Cleveland, acknowledged that he believes he has regained full strength in the knee.
“Today was very encouraging for me, the doctors,” Griffin said. “It’s been a gradual improvement. It just takes rest and time.”
