Midnight crept closer and, finally, Robert Griffin III found a place that 49ers defenders couldn't accost him. The Redskins quarterback stood behind a podium in the half-full interview room at FedEx Field as the final minutes of Monday night disappeared. He invoked demons and God. Dodged questions. Tried to explain the failed season. But even the podium offered little protection to Griffin after the 27-6 embarrassment against the 49ers laid bare the franchise's woes in front of a national television audience.
He barely limped, if at all, in his first public appearance since his since undergoing surgery on Jan. 9 to revise the reconstruction of the ACL and repair the torn lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.
Robert Griffin Jr. has been a father for 27 of his 47 years on this earth. The beginning, with all its thrills and wonder, featured that awakening all new parents experience. Children, it turns out, come with no instruction booklet. Somehow the manufacturer always leaves that out of the box.
There has been plenty of NFL talent to come out of the state of South Carolina _ many from the Geathers family tree.
His relentless drive to excel merges the elements of Robert Griffin III — the supremely gifted athlete, the quiet kid from central Texas, the hopeless romantic, the charismatic leader, the passionate student — into one package. He is RG3.
Cornell University has acquired 70 years' worth of plans and papers of famed golf course designer Robert Trent Jones.
He said Robert III did not completely tear the right patellar tendon graft that served as his ACL.
However, orthopedist James Andrews detected some instability at the top of the graft and believed it would serve Robert III best to completely revise the reconstruction using a patellar tendon graft from his left knee, Robert Jr. said.
