Robert Griffin III making good progress after knee surgery.
Despite having only undergone reconstructive knee surgery a little over a month ago, Washington Redskins officials are reportedly so encouraged by Robert Griffin III’s recovery that they believe he may have a chance to start in the 2013 opener, according to ESPN.
Despite there being a long road ahead in his rehabilitation, the Redskins haven’t ruled out a potential return in time for the start of next season after promising early signs.
Griffin recently returned to Washington to continue his rehab, and while the Redskins know there is still a long way to go, they believe it is a real possibility to see him back in action sooner than first thought.
RG III had an incredible rookie season as the Redskins won the NFC East for the first time in 13 years, which also eventually led to him earning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award and a Pro Bowl invitation.
However, his season was cut short when he suffered a horrific knee injury in the play-off loss against the Seattle Seahawks.
Griffin went under the knife to repair both a torn ACL and LCL, and with early reports indicating a good start to rehab, both the player and the Redskins’ fans will be hoping that it is a good sign of things to come.
