07:01 AM ET 05.24 | At least on Thursday, Robert Griffin III looked like a guy quite capable of fulfilling his father's desire to see the Redskins throw the ball a lot this season. [RGIII] said after the Washington Redskins' organized team activity Thursday that his surgically repaired right knee "feels great" and he hopes to be ready to participate in training camp. "The knee feels great," Griffin said. "I'm able to do all the stuff out there without any hesitation." Griffin did not participate in the OTA but was on the field and did some running and throwing. He said there are two phases remaining in his rehabilitation. ... The Redskins begin training camp July 25, and Griffin said: "My goal is to be out there for training camp."

One of these games his leg is just going to fall right off... like a crash test dummy.

Might as well start as soon as you can. Every guy is only one play from a career-ending injury.

Don't come back too early, dude. You're the man, but you have one of the better backups in the league. No need to rush it.

He's returning all those wedding gifts?

He wants to do punt and kickoff returns, too. Many happy returns for RG-III.

I'd like to see someone make a YouTube video of that. Just take some MythBusters clips and dub RGIII's face over busters... and then the Shanahan's faces over Adam & Jamie.

He should take his time, he's got a long promising career ahead of him!

Take your time and heal right. Don't be in such a hurry to get hurt again.
