RG3 confirms his recovery is ahead of schedule

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

“You always want people holding you back,” Redskins QB Robert Griffin III told host Larry Michael on Wednesday’s program, referring to the team’s medical staff needing to limit how hard he pushes himself during rehab sessions. “You don’t ever want to have people pushing you forward.”

Although Griffin did not specifically address where he is in the rehabilitation process, he confirmed recent reports from surgeon James Andrews and Coach Mike Shanahan that his recovery is progressing well and that he’s well ahead of schedule.

“That’s what they’re doing right now; they’re holding me back from doing certain things because I feel like I’m ready, my body might feel like it’s ready, but according to the timetable, I’m not ready,” he said.

Griffin had the ACL, LCL and meniscus in his right knee repaired by Andrews on Jan. 9.

Fantasy Impact: 

QB is already deep, but if RG3 is good to go for Week 1, watch out. Tony Romo figures to be our QB12 in that scenario and he was drafted QB6-QB7 from 2009-2011.
