RG3's knee "feels great," appears to be ready for the start of camp

Throughout the offseason, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been ahead of schedule with the rehabilitation of his right knee and has stated his goal is to be ready for when the team opens training camp.

That day is fast approaching as the Redskins players, both veterans and rookies, will report to camp on Wednesday.

Per Mike Jones of the Washington Post, RG3's knee reportedly "feels great" and he wrote the following:

"A person familiar with the second-year quarterback’s physical and mental health said this week that Griffin’s knee — the same in which he tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in 2009 and then this past January suffered damage to his lateral collateral ligament, ACL and meniscus — “feels great,” and that Griffin believes that he has done everything possible to meet his stated goal of returning for the opening of camp. The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized by the Redskins to speak publicly on the matter, said Griffin continues to run and cut without pain or limitation."

Ultimately, the determination will be made by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday on whether or not he will be cleared to practice without restriction.

Whether or not he is able to practice on Thursday is much less important than whether or not will be ready for the team's season opener, which will be against the Eagles on Monday, September 9th (see team's full schedule).

At this point, there appears to be little doubt that RG3 will be ready for the season opener.
