RICHMOND — Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said quarterback Robert Griffin III is “progressing well” but he wasn’t about to offer a prediction on when the injured star will return to the field.
Allen said they won’t be updating everyone on his progress every week, but he did say Griffin was at least on schedule and perhaps even ahead.
However, as to whether or not he’ll be ready for the opener, Allen said, “We’re going to let the doctors quote on where they are. I know Dr. [James] Andrews was hopeful after the surgery. We’ll see how he progresses. This will be an ongoing thing throughout the summer.”
Griffin underwent surgery to reconstruct his anterior cruciate ligament and to repair the lateral collateral ligament as well as the medial collateral ligament. He’s going back and forth between Ashburn and Pensacola, Fla., for his rehab.
“He has such a great commitment and positive attitude,” Allen said at the groundbreaking ceremony in Richmond for Redskins training camp. “He has remained positive. He knows he’s going to be bigger and better than ever.”
