ASHBURN, Va. Andy Dalton Jersey . -- Quarterback Robert Griffin III said Thursday "without a doubt" that he expects to be fully recovered from knee surgery and in uniform when the Washington Redskins open training camp on July 25 in Richmond. "One, its a mindset and then two, its how its progressed," the Griffin said of his surgically repaired right knee. "I feel confident in my body and the way its been responding. Training camps a month and a half away. Thats why I say without a doubt. I think its the right target if Im healthy." Griffin had knee surgery on Jan. 9 to repair the ACL and LCL he had torn during the playoff loss to Seattle three days earlier. Coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin was initially projected to miss seven-to-nine months. That would mean Griffin wouldnt return before Aug. 9, the day after Washington opens its preseason schedule against Tennessee. "I dont think anybody knows for sure, (but) I like that goal," Shanahan said of Griffin being ready for camp. "You want him to come back as soon as hes ready to go, but the doctors gotta OK him." For now, Griffin finished the final day of organized team activities as usual by working on a side of the field with some of his fellow rehabbing teammates. The difference this week was that the Redskins went four straight days for the first time this off-season. "I felt good today," Griffin said. "Thats what Im excited about, to have those four straight days and still feel good with no soreness. Every day you want to feel better and thats how its been. I started throwing on the run a lot more, doing a lot more plant throws out of the play-action. I also bumped up the long-distance running. Im feeling more comfortable doing everything." Giovani Bernard Jersey . The right-hander started hitting his spots after that, setting up Milwaukee for a big finish. Peralta pitched seven effective innings, Aramis Ramirez lined a two-run double in the eighth inning and the Brewers broke open a close game late for a 9-3 victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday night.

Burnett left in the fourth inning because of a sore groin, but Philadelphia chased Fernandez (2-1) with three runs in the fifth en route to its first home win of the season. Fernandez, last seasons NL Rookie of the Year, was tagged for eight hits and a career-worst six earned runs in four-plus innings. MONTREAL -- Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo will remain on the sidelines for the rest of the season, a decision that casts serious doubt on the prospect of the CFLs all-time passing leader taking the field again. Calvillo hasnt played since suffering a concussion in a game at Saskatchewan over two months ago. Alouettes general manager and head coach Jim Popp confirmed Friday that Calvillo will not play again this year. Popp said the decision was reached Friday morning after Calvillo recently had a setback. "He still can exercise, still train, but hes made a decision to shut it down this season," Popp said after practice. "Hes not going to return this year and hes going to concentrate on getting his health back where it needs to be." Calvillo was injured on Aug. 17 when his head struck the turf following a legal hit by Roughriders defensive end Ricky Foley. Calvillo suffered from headaches and had vision trouble in the days after the hit. The 41-year-old Los Angeles native later made appearances on the practice field and sat in on team meetings. There is concern that Calvillos 20-year career may be over though his plans beyond this season arent clear. He didnt speak with reporters Friday. Toronto Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich, who was Montreals quarterbacks coach in 2007 and offensive co-ordinator and assistant head coach from 2008-11, was surprised to learn of Calvillos setback. "Thats disappointing for him," Milanovich said after arriving in Winnipeg for Saturdays game against the Blue Bombers. "It sounded like things were going well. Id hate to see him not get his opportunity to get back in there and if he chose to go out, go out on a moree positive note. Tyler Eifert Womens Jersey. " Calvillo broke Damon Allens league records for passing yards, completions and touchdown passes. His 79,816 passing yards are the most in pro football history, nearly 8,000 yards more than Brett Favre, the top passer in National Football League history. His 5,892 completions are second only to Favre in pro football history, and he ranks third in touchdown passes with 455, behind only Favre and Peyton Manning. The CFLs Most Outstanding Player Award recipient in 2003, 2008 and 2009, Calvillo has led the Alouettes to eight Grey Cup appearances. He has won titles in 2002 (when he was named the championship games MVP) and had back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010. It was in the middle of celebrating his third Grey Cup win that Calvillo revealed that he had cancer. He had a complete thyroidectomy and recovered to continue his career uninterrupted the following season. Calvillos cancer scare came two years after his wife Alexia waged a successful battle against cancer. He seriously contemplated retirement following the 2011 season after suffering two head injuries. Josh Neiswander took over as the starting quarterback in Montreal this season after Calvillo was injured. Rookie Tanner Marsh held the job briefly before he tore a ligament in his right thumb a month ago. Josh Smith, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2006 with Ohio State, is expected to make his first CFL start Sunday when Montreal hosts Hamilton in a key East Division showdown. The 6-9 Alouettes are in third place in the division, four points behind the 8-7 Tiger-Cats. Also Friday, the Alouettes signed import cornerback Mitchell White and import running back Johnny White to their practice roster. cheap jerseys cheap nhl jerseys ' ' '
