RGIII will go through all 7-on-7 work in practices but not much team stuff right away source says.

Just an amazing rehabilitation for RGIII to already be medically cleared for training camp, Adrian Peterson was a surprise to come back so soon and he was injured late in the regular season, RGIII was injured in the playoffs.

I doubt he was cleared for full contact, but as a QB, he won't have to worry about being hit at all during camp.

Doubt he plays the pre-season, personally.

This idea to rush a player back after a major injury is not very wise. He's blown out both knees already. One more knee injury could cost him his career. Cleared or not, the team needs to be more cautious with him. He's their franchise and could be their QB for the next 15 years. Why sacrifice that for the sole sake of getting him back 5-8 games sooner? It doesn't make sense.

No it wouldnt cost him a career. Firstly because people have come back from multiple ACL tears. Secondly, he is a QB. He doesnt have to be physically gifted. He has enough arm talent to succeed. He wouldnt be done by any stretch.

I like how RGIII says the coach will ease him into it. Yeah like he eased you into the playoff game when you were all beat up and still played you. Yeah maybe full contact on Day 1.

I didn't say it would. I said that it could. And few people return from mutiple ACL tears, let alone return to top form, so it should be of significant concern considering the team invested millions in him and stands to gain much more than that if he remains healthy and had a long, productive career. Again, it seems very reckless. There is no need to take that chance so quickly.

Let's go Baby.... We're ready for this season.. I am a huge Redskins fan! But I would not mind tanking for Clowney.. RG3 needs to "miss" some games.

With all that said and my system is flushed.. Good luck to RG3..

He's not a great guy but he's a great competitor. You gotta respect that, He's willing to lay it all out on the field for this team.

I know you ruined that football talk by talking about his personality like that really matters on the field. I don't think him being a good or bad guy will affect his knee or play. So yeah.

That pic just about captures how nasty the knee bend was. #Ouch

I think he plays that week one game vs the Eagles on MNF.

I'm with misfit here.

You traded multiple first round picks for your franchise QB, to rush him back for one season is pretty shortsighted. Maybe later in the season get some games in.

Sure he could survive on his arm, but what makes him so dynamic is his ability to escape and picks up extra yards. It's not like he's amazing with his arm.

There's certainly nothing wrong with it
