The NFL saw what a healthy, speedy Robert Griffin III could do as a rookie. The quarterback could run or pass, keeping defenses unsure and in turn taking the Redskins to an NFC East title. After an infamous knee injury, Griffin looked slower and less confident, and Washington suffered.

This season, RG3 will play without the knee brace he believes encumbered his ability to move inside and outside of the pocket. At OTAs and minicamp, Griffin's lateral quickness was noticeably improved from a year ago. 

Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said Griffin looks just as explosive as he did in 2012. So what does it all mean?

Will Griffin get back to ripping off large chunks of yardage on the ground? Is 500 yards rushing a reasonable expectation? In 2012, Griffin ran for more than 800 yards. In 2013, Griffin did not break the 500 yard mark.

Should Griffin run as much? Will increased accuracy in the passing game make up for less rushing yards?

Let us know what you think in the comments.
