Cousins shines in Redskins preseason opener

RICHMOND – As expected, the next phase of Robert Griffin III’s recovery is set to begin as the team reconvenes at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center following Thursday's victory in Tennessee.

But it doesn’t sound like 11-on-11 drills will be a part of that next phase, at least not immediately.

“Well, what we’ll do for a couple days is get him some walkthroughs at the start of practice with our offense,” Shanahan said in Nashville. "So we’ll give him some walkthrough that he hasn’t gotten. It won’t be against any defense, but that will be the first step.”

Saturday’s practice – the first open to the media and public since Tuesday – is set to begin at 2 p.m., or an hour later than originally scheduled. 

Since the start of training camp, Griffin has been limited to individual and 7-on-7 drills as he recovers from reconstructive knee surgery. He has yet to take part in the more strenuous 11-on-11 drills, which feature a pass rush. 

Asked if the team had established a date for Griffin to begin participating in 11-on-11 drills, Shanahan said, “No.”
