Griffin will make sure not to rush anything, however, and stopped short of guaranteeing his return date.

Robert Griffin III believes he can be ready for Day 1 of Washington Redskins training camp, "without a doubt," according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Griffin is recovering from a torn ACL that was exacerbated in a first-round loss to the Seattle Seahawks during last season's NFL Playoffs.

Griffin reiterated that he felt good, and there is no soreness in his knee. He is doing more cutting, planting and throwing, suggesting that his recovery is going as well as planned. Griffin stopped short of making a guarantee, however, saying that if he isn't ready, "I can swallow my pride."

Head coach Mike Shanahan absorbed a lot of criticism from fans and media for how he handled his prized young quarterback, with many saying that he left Griffin on the field in situations when he should have been resting. Shanahan emphasized that he will be consulting with doctors to determine when Griffin will be back on the field.
