Named the Associated Press’ Offensive Rookie of the Year, the 23-year-old Griffin is recovering from January’s reconstructive surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee.
A 6-foot-2, 217 pound athletic phenomenon, Griffin suffered the same injury playing as a Baylor University Bear four years ago.
Despite the severity of the wound, this afternoon’s reports further strengthen predictions made by Dr. James Andrews and Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan that the superstar will mend in record fashion.
RG3 completed an impressive 65.6 percent of his throws for 20 touchdowns, against five interceptions, and 3,200 yards in 15 games.
Running the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds at the NFL Combine in February 2012, Griffin also rushed for 815 yards and seven scores last autumn.
Fortunately, although a tremendous scrambler, Kim Kardashian’s wet dream proved capable of flourishing strictly as a pocket passer by posting a 102.4 quarterback rating.
Anything but a “cornball brother,” Griffin is destined to eventually guide the Redskins to their first championship since the 1991 campaign.
In the meantime, a healthy Robert Griffin III is certain to start the season against the Philadelphia Eagles on September 9 at FedExField in Landover.by
