While it is great news that Washington Redskins QB RGIII has been cleared to practice, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that RGIII may not test out his surgically repaired right knee during the 2013 pre-season.
[Mike] Shanahan, who put Griffin through an extensive workout Monday after team doctors cleared his return to practice, would not specifically address questions of whether Griffin would play this summer. But sources who know the coach expressed pessimism Griffin would return in the preseason.
One Redskins front-office member said Washington will not want to subject Griffin to any hits this summer. Shanahan also was known in Denver to be cautious with players coming off major injuries.
Personally, I don’t think that is good. While RGIII has been testing his knee, as a fan, I personally think that limited game situation work would be very beneficial.
