Question of the Day
He did not specify where he and his bride will honeymoon, but that trip will include knee exercises.
“I’m planning ahead of time to make sure I do things I have to do while I’m on that honeymoon,” he said. “I think I’m a responsible guy, so I’ll make sure I do everything I have to to be ready — cutting, running, working out — so when I get back and they see me, that they’ll be not only impressed, but they feel safe and sound to put me out there.”
In the nearer term, the quarterback is scheduled to meet with his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, next week, a person with knowledge of the situation said.
He wouldn’t be cleared to practice, though, until just before the start of camp, coach Mike Shanahan said.
“We talk about this question every day, and nobody knows for sure, but we’re trying on July 24 or 25, in that area, and we’ll find out,” Shanahan said.
Griffin, then, will push forward with his physical recovery.
He is fine from a mental standpoint — confident in his knee — but he has a bit more work to do to ensure he can resume playing at a high level.
He won’t risk absorbing contact until he’s in a game situation, but preparing for that first hit continues to be his goal.
And if all goes well, he’ll be wearing a helmet, jersey and pads in six weeks’ time.
