Another week, another report of Robert Griffin III being ahead of schedule in his recovery. Only this time, it comes from a better source: his doctor.
Dr. James Andrews told the NFL Network Friday at the scouting combine in Indianapolis that Griffin is “way ahead of schedule.” But when Griffin will be 100 percent? Andrews wasn’t about to go there. Instead, he preached admiration for Griffin and caution for his return.
“We got him well on his way,” Andrews told the network. “He’s an unbelievable athlete. …. So far we don’t have to do much but hold him back. Our whole mode for him is to do what’s best for his career, not necessarily what’s best for the first game of the season. All that needs to be put on hold and let him get well.”
Griffin underwent surgery on Jan. 9 to reconstruct his right anterior cruciate ligament and repair the lateral collateral ligament as well as the medial meniscus.
