Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to increase his practice activities to 11-on-11 drills this week, according to the Washington Post's Mike Jones and Mark Maske.

Two sources familiar with the situation-- but chose to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to speak on the matter-- both said Griffin's activities were set to increase this week. One source said that includes drills versus an 11-man defense, and that could happen as soon as Tuesday.

Head coach Mike Shanahan has not confirmed this increased activity, but hinted last week that Griffin may soon participate in more drills as long as there are no setbacks. Thus far, Griffin has only participated in seven-on-seven passing activities and a few other drills.

Griffin did not play in the team's preseason opener, but dressed in full pads and uniform and joined the team captains at midfield for the pregame coin toss. He is not expected to see any preseason action this summer.
