Washington Redskins Hopeful Robert Griffin III Will Be Ready for Week One

It's hard to believe that a month has passed since Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III underwent surgery to fix a torn ACL and LCL, but the team is already excited about his recovery.

After observing RG3's rehab, the team has every reason to believe that RG3 will be on the field when the Redskins kick off the 2013 season in September.  The team has been careful to choose their words wisely when discussing Griffin's status as they simply cannot afford to rush their franchise player back on the field and risk further injury.  Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played well coming off the bench in a win over the Baltimore Ravens and led the surging Redskins over the Cleveland Browns in a must-win situation.  The team has confidence in Cousins and won't hesitate to lean on him while Griffin continues to rehabilitate his right knee.

There are still several benchmarks that he'll have to hit in the seven months before the season officially gets underway.  While the news coming out of Washington this morning are certainly positive, and better than hearing about setbacks, RG3 still faces a long road ahead.  In the meantime, from what we've learned about Robert Griffin III over the past season is that he won't give up, and he'll be back better than before.  

And for the rest of the NFL that's a scary thought.
