Robert Griffin III announced that he would return to full-team workouts on Tuesday, but he's not too pleased with how the Redskins are trying to ease him back by playing him against the scout team. The plan is supposedly to avoid Griffin getting hit. This is what the second year quarterback had to say about the plan, via ESPN:
"I can't BS that answer," he said. "No, I don't like it. I don't understand all of it. But [Shanahan] gave me his word. … When you give your word to somebody that's all they have so I'm just banking that they will stay true to their word and I'm staying true to mine. I'm doing everything they ask me to do without any gripes."
Griffin said he doesn't understand why they're sticking to a plan regardless of how he feels.
"That's the part I don't understand," he said. "My reintegration to the team has been fixed without any aspect of how I'm doing personally with my knee surgery and with my knee rehab. It's pre-determined. That's the one thing I don't understand. What coach says, and he's 100 percent right, I don't have to understand it. I don't have to like it. If he plays me Week 1 and I'm ready to go then I'll give him a salute and I'll play my butt off for him."
