RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- -

Robert Griffin III says he has "no pain" and "no swelling" in his surgically repaired right knee.

The Washington Redskins quarterback is also anxious to increase his practice load. He said Monday that training camp is "Operation Patience" as he goes along with coach Mike Shanahan's cautious approach.

Griffin won't be allowed to do 11-on-11 drills in the main practices until next week at the earliest.

For now, protecting the knee is more important that perfecting the fade route. One of the biggest cheers of camp from the fans came with Griffin performed a slow-motion slide at the end of a scramble during a 7-on-7 session.
