Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III hasn't changed his tune about when he'll be ready for regular football action, saying Thursday that "without a doubt" he still plans to be a full go when the team opens training camp late next month. "This was a big week with four straight days on the field, throwing every day, throwing on the run," Griffin told reporters after practice, referring to his comeback from reconstructive surgery on his right knee. "Every day you want to feel better and that's how it's been." In addition to feeling more "comfortable" physically, Griffin also has been equipped to handle the mental challenges with his continued road to recovery. "It's a mind-set and how I've progressed. I feel a lot better," Griffin said. "Training camp is two months away and I feel good about it." At the same time, given the controversy over his quick return to the field after suffering a knee injury late last season and subsequent surgery after tearing ligaments in the playoff loss to Seattle, Griffin will restrain himself from hurrying back if he feels he's not completely ready in the last week of July.
