Redskins’ RG3 says he’ll be ready for July camp

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Quarterback Robert Griffin III says “without a doubt” that he expects to be fully recovered from knee surgery and in uniform when the Washington Redskins open training camp on July 25 in Richmond.

Griffin said Thursday he’s confident because “it’s a mindset” and because of how his surgically repaired right knee has progressed. The QB says “training camp’s a month and a half away. That’s why I say without a doubt.”

He had knee surgery on Jan. 9 to repair the ACL and LCL he had torn during the playoff loss to Seattle three days earlier.

Coach Mike Shanahan says Griffin was initially projected to miss seven-to-nine months. That would mean Griffin wouldn’t return before Aug. 9, the day after Washington opens its preseason schedule against Tennessee.
