RGIII displays accuracy at Washington Redskins camp

After spending the offseason nestled in bubble wrap, Robert Griffin III is seeing more and more work in training camp for the Washington Redskins.

Griffin put on a show Thursday, completing 16 of 17 throws in 7-on-7 drills, according to Mike Jones of The Washington Post.

The numbers aren't so important, but Griffin "appeared to plant better on his throws today than he did on Wednesday," Jones wrote. Coming off major knee surgery, Griffin showed keen footwork on his dropbacks and "really planted and threw with impressive velocity" on a 15-yard strike to tight end Logan Paulsen.

Griffin's passes mostly were short ones -- dumpoffs and 5- to 10-yard tosses -- but The Post said he relied less on his upper body than in previous sessions.

RGIII's lone incompletion was an overthrow to Pierre Garcon. "He's got to get that other completion," coach Mike Shanahan joked.

We still want to see if Griffin's accuracy and "ball location" hold up in game situations after the ACL injury, but the early signs are positive. We have no doubt RGIII will be ready for Week 1.
