Washington Redskins Quarterback will take his time with knee rehabilitation.
After injuring his knee in the Redskins playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January, Quarterback RGIII has been busy rehabbing his right knee in preparation for the 2013 NFL season.
Despite cries from the majority of Redskin fans for him to be fit for game one of the regular season, the 23-year old is taking the recovery process slowly, and won’t return until he is completely healthy.
“I’m doing great,” Griffin told the Washington Post.
“Knee feels fine. It’s about taking it slow. Each day is a better day.”
After winning the Rookie of the Year award in 2012, many see Griffin as the cornerstone for any future success for the Redskins, and that his health will play a major part in those expectations.
It seems Griffin fully understands the pressure that is on him to help this team succeed, yet at the same time realises that this recovery is important to the longevity of his NFL career.
While the Redskins faithful may want to see Griffin back immediately, it is best for the long-term success of the franchise that he doesn’t play until he is 100% fit to lead the team.
