No Surprise to Hear Robert Griffin III Starting For Washington Redskins in Week 1
In an offseason filled with plenty of stories to keep an eye on, it’s safe to say the situation surrounding Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins has been the biggest story of them all. After suffering a torn ACL in the playoffs last January, nobody knew what to expect with Griffin when it came to playing in the opener for the 2013 season.
Now, it appears Redskins fans can breath a sign of relief as it looks like their quarterback will be good to go after all.
Washington will reportedly start Griffin at quarterback for the team’s first game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football in Week 1–which will certainly be interesting to watch. The type of progress made by Griffin during his recovery process has been nothing short of phenomenal so far and even though all signs pointed to the quarterback being good to go for Week 1, there was still a reason for concern considering a torn ACL is the type of injury players have to be extremely cautious with.
This may seem like a risky move by the Redskins since Griffin hasn’t played in a game during the preseason, but the team knows how much of an advantage it is to have him at quarterback when healthy. After leading Washington to the playoffs last year, it will certainly be interesting to see what Griffin brings to the table in his sophomore season–assuming there’s no setback from his knee injury.
