Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (10) Rex Grossman (8), Pat White (5) and Kirk Cousins (12) look for receivers during the afternoon practice at the NFL football team's training camp in Richmond,Va. Friday, Aug. 2, 2013.

All went well during Robert Griffin III's first full practice at Redskins training camp in Richmond, Va. The quarterback is still on-target for starting the team's first regular season game next month.

Griffin took his first 11-on-11 snaps yesterday. RGIII ran 16 plays with the first-string offense against a scout-team defense, completing 7 of 10 passes with an interception.

Griffin had been limited to 7-on-7 drills during camp as he works his way back from reconstructive knee surgery.

Coach Mike Shanahan's cautious approach has tested Griffin's patience, and Griffin has lobbied unsuccessfully to accelerate the process and play in the preseason.

RGIII wore the familiar black brace on his right knee during the drills. He moved well in the pocket, although he didn't face much of a pass rush. Shanahan says Griffin remains on pace to start the regular season opener on September 9 against the Eagles at FedEx Field, barring a setback.
