Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III Appears to Be Ahead of Rehab Schedule

(Brad Mills/USA Today Sports)

After tearing up the NFL world in 2012 as a rookie, the Washington Redskins and their fans are anxious to see whether or not Robert Griffin III will be good to go for Week 1 of the 2013 season. Griffin tore his ACL during Wild Card Weekend against the Seattle Seahawks and while the timetable of his return seemed like it would take a long time, it appears his recovery is moving faster than originally expected.

The famous Dr. James Andrews recently discussed Griffin’s progress–praising him as an athlete and discussing how he was well ahead of schedule as he continues to rehab from the surgery he had last month. There’s been plenty of talk about the possibility of Griffin returning to the Redskins lineup by Week 1 and while it seemed crazy at first, it may not be as crazy after all with the way Dr. James is talking about his rehab process.

Obviously, the last thing Washington needs to do is have Griffin return to the field too soon and put his knee at risk again, but that’s easier said than done considering Griffin is one of the most competitive players in the NFL (just look how long it took him to come out of the game against the Seahawks). Plus, Griffin is the type of quarterback that will take advantage of any open holes on the field with his legs if given the opportunity–so the Redskins have to be cautious about that as well when he does return to the field.

Eddie Lacy is a short yardage specialist, and when he breaks these long runs he definitely will come out of the game every time. This huge run setup the Packers' go-ahead touchdown and they would never look back. Lacy would get his later in the game.
