Reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III is still recovering from a couple fairly serious knee injuries -- the PCL sprain he suffered in Week 14 of the 2012 season against the Baltimore Ravens, and the ACL and PCL tears he had in a wild-card playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan was widely criticized for playing Griffin against the Seahawks when his quarterback was obviously physically failing near the end of the game, but if the recent testimony of renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews is any indication, Shanahan may be off the hook -- and with a truly healthy starting quarteback sooner than later.
"I've been real mum on talking too much about RG 3," Andrews recently told ESPN while working on a feature about South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, who is also under Andrews' care. "He wants his recovery to be fairly private, but I can tell you he's way ahead of schedule. His recovery has been unbelievable so far. RG3 is one those superhumans. First patient I ever had like that was Bo Jackson. And recently I, of course, had Adrian Peterson, who is also superhuman. They have an unbelievable ability to recover, where as a normal human being may not be able to recover."
