Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III Aiming to Be Ready For First Day of Training Camp
The argument can be made that no player has ever been as motivated to return from an injury before the start of the regular season than Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins as the quarterback continues to rehab from a torn ACL that he suffered in the playoffs last year against the Seattle Seahawks. After Adrian Peterson pulled off a miraculous season in 2012 following an ACL tear, there’s no reason why Griffin shouldn’t be able to do the same, but that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to be concerned on the Redskins end.
In fact, if you ask Griffin–he has his eyes set on returning for the first day of training camp. With the way things have gone so far this offseason, but to think Griffin will be fully ready to go for the first day of training camp would be pretty amazing since the injury just took place in January.
Griffin has been praised for how quickly his rehab process has been going so far and whether or not Washington returns to the postseason could heavily rely on his shoulders. Everybody knew the potential was there for Griffin when the Redskins selected him with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but nobody could have predicted for him to lead the team to the playoffs right away.
Hopefully, Griffin ends up being right about being ready to go for the first day of training camp, but let’s just hope he’s smart about the situation and doesn’t rush back into anything sooner than he should.
