“(Running) sprints around the practice field Thursday,” SI’s Peter King says there’s “little doubt” Washington standout Robert Griffin III will start the season under center for the Redskins.
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.
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 interim, there is now “little doubt” that Robert Griffin III will commence his comeback journey against the Philadelphia Eagles on September 9 at FedExField in Landover.by
