Robert Griffin III could be ready by the start of training camp, but during OTAs, Kirk Cousins has the chance to prepare like he'll be the guy next season.
The Redskins quarterback choked up as he described the aftermath of the Jan. 8 surgery when Dr. James Andrews also repaired the lateral collateral ligament.
Four months and two weeks removed from right knee ligament surgery, there, for all to see, was evidence to justify the Washington Redskins' optimism that their franchise quarterback will be ready to start the regular season Sept. 9.
Robert Griffin III's rehab started with a "cry festival." Then came a special new passcode for his cellphone and a chance to hash things out with coach Mike Shanahan.
This isn't simply an opportunity for general manager Ernie Grunfeld to add to the gifted young core of John Wall and Bradley Beal while solidifying the gap at small forward, much in the same way the Oklahoma City Thunder built a juggernaut through the draft and savvy trades driven by the long view, not instant gratification.
While Redskins fans living near Redskins Park in Ashburn, where the team has held its training camp for several years, are dismayed that the team has moved further south, the team has heard from plenty of people further south in Norfolk and North Carolina delighted to now live closer to the site.
What he wrote Sunday on Twitter to thank fans for their unsolicited purchases from his wedding registry was a nice gesture. We like our heroes humble, and D.C. has no greater icon these days than RG3. To know he cherishes the jerky maker and the corn peeler and the napkins is reassuring. But the picture Griffin posted with the thank-you message was a bad look.
He had surgery on Jan. 9 to revise his ACL reconstruction and repair the lateral collateral ligament and medial meniscus. Doctors expect him to be ready for the Redskins' first regular season game, which is Monday, Sep. 9 at home against Philadelphia.
Robert Griffin III's knee is still feeling fine. His ability to turn a room upside down is better than ever.
Americans learned that the Boston bombers initially wanted to launch their terror attack on Independence Day, and the Obama administration found itself on the defensive once again over accusations of a Benghazi cover-up. On the international stage, Russia’s strategic nuclear forces are undergoing a major modernization — while the U.S. scales back. Here's a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took to Twitter to espouse his views of political correctness, describing an America that's well on its way to tyranny.
The last pitch Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg threw in Atlanta on Monday night touched 98 miles per hour. But that wasn't enough -- oh, not even close -- to quell the wave of near-panic over his pitching arm's health.
They'll also savor the reason they don't have a selection Thursday. Last year's trade of three first-round picks, including those in 2013 and 2014, to position the franchise to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III filled a need to which everything else seems secondary.
"One thing I don't want to do is I don't want to see anything too quick," Shanahan said. "We're dealing with an ACL. That takes time. Mother Nature will take its course."
Playing on the offensive line is about as unglamorous as it gets in professional football.
“Real men cry,” Griffin said Thursday at Redskins Park in his first media availability since the procedure.
"Do I need to practice every day? Probably not," Griffin said about training camp.
