President Obama's foreign policy speech was stopped multiple times by Code Pink heckling, and Lois Lerner was suspended from the her position at the IRS. On the international stage, two men in the United Kingdom murdered a soldier in the streets of London. Here's a recap, or wrap, of the week that was from The Washington Times.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
