Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III insists that he is ready to return to full training as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has insisted that he is ready to return to full-team training as he continues his recovery from injury.

Griffin has not taken part in full training since an operation on his right knee seven months ago and has been limited to seven-on-seven drills in the first 10 days of their training camp.

However, the 23-year-old believes that he is fit enough to participate in full sessions even if coach Mike Shanahan does not agree.

"Hopefully [next week's plan] involves some team reps. I know what the plan is but it's also up to be changed based on how I feel after this week. Hopefully I can get out there and get with the team and starting to do more team activities," Griffin told reporters.

"I'm ready to move on. There's only so much you can do in seven-on-seven. The completion percentage is there, I feel the rhythm is there with the guys. We're finding the holes in the defence when we have to and throwing checkdowns when we have to as well. Coach will tell you something else but I'm ready to move on and go to team reps. I just have to keep doing what coach asks me to do.

"You can say what you want about what he's (Mike Shanahan) doing and I can feel any kind of way about it, but we have to be on the same page and that's what I'm trying to do. Do everything the coaches ask me to do and show them my rhythm and timing is there and show them I can play. At the end of the day they have to play me week one if I do everything they ask me to do."

Griffin was chosen as the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft and went on to have a successful rookie season until his injury.
