It’s the topic that will be on the mind of the Redskins and their fans all the way till he is back on the field – will RG III make it back for the 2013 opener?
Coach Mike Shanahan said at the owners meeting that Griffin III is “ahead of schedule” in his return from knee surgery.
Shanahan said that when Griffin comes back, he must learn how to protect himself in the face of the fierce defenses in the NFL.
Once Griffin does come back, Shanahan says the young quarterback needs to learn to slide and throw the ball away to avoid the big hits that lead to injuries.
Shanahan says that “if hard work has anything to do with it,” Griffin will be ready for the coming season.
