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.
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.
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.
"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."
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.
Playing on the offensive line is about as unglamorous as it gets in professional football.
Since 1936, the NFL has picked the best of college football to join the pro league. From the very first pick _ Jay Berwanger, who also was the first bust, never playing a down in the NFL _ to last year's No. 1, Andrew Luck, the draft has always offered plenty of intrigue for teams and fans.
Jones posed with and hugged the bust of his likeness Tuesday at a Subway restaurant in Manhattan, "amazed" at its authenticity — right down to the dreadlocks made of more than 1,000 raisins.
The Big 12 is facing an identity crisis at quarterback, with a lot of different players preparing to take snaps this fall.
With the No. 2 overall pick, you expect an immediate impact player. With No. 51? Who knows what you'll get? That's kind of what makes the draft fun.
The Redskins' guiding philosophy during this salary cap crisis is clear little more than a month after free agency began. They believe continuity and familiarity can help offset whatever gains in talent the club could not achieve because it lacked necessary cap space.
The lessons here -- and this is where the other local team needs to pay attention -- are athletes don't make the call and you make the decision based on what you see, not on what you hear.
The Redskins will host a nationally televised preseason game against Pittsburgh on Aug. 19 even though quarterback Robert Griffin III is not expected to play until the regular season because of his recovery from knee surgery.
"You don't think that a pair of cleats can make that kind of difference," Griffin said. "But I guess they were highly sought-after."
"I was going to cry," Griffin said. "I think everybody got a little choked up."
