Report: Redskins believe RG3 has “legitimate chance” to start opener


It has been a little more than a month since Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had his right ACL and LCL surgically repaired, which is apparently enough time for the Redskins to develop an idea about when Griffin will be ready to start playing games again.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team is already encouraged enough by Griffin’s rehab that they believe he has a “legitimate chance” of being on the field when the Redskins start the 2013 season. “Legitimate chance” is one of those purposefully vague phrases that leave a lot of wiggle room and it is with good reason in this case.

Griffin’s rehab is just starting and there are plenty of other checkpoints that he’ll have to hit in the seven months before the start of next season before he’s given the green light to lead the Redskins offense. Encouraging signs are just that at this point in the process because there’s no way they or anyone else can know how RG3’s knee will progress over the long road ahead.

It’s certainly better than the alternative, but we’re still a good distance away from serious talk about starting the opener.

    He had a legitimate chance to make it through the playoff game also. They better not rush him back if they want to have any chance of a full recovery.

  2. stevenreichert says: Feb 14, 2013 10:42 AM

    Come on. It’s too early to tell. Sounds like the Skins are trying to put a good spin on their bad decisions which contributed to this injury in the first place.

  3. pftbillsfan says: Feb 14, 2013 10:42 AM

    When is the last time a star wasn’t ready? Seriously with the development of blood cycling and platelet enrichment therapy how can he not be. The fact is acl simply isn’t as bad as it used to be nor does it take as much time to recover.

  4. kliplee says: Feb 14, 2013 10:45 AM

    RGIII in a wheelchair is still better than Mark Sanchez

  5. blackbug99 says: Feb 14, 2013 10:47 AM

    Then there’s the question of how this will affect his mindset. Will he be less apt to scramble? Not a Skins fan, but wish him well. He’s a warrior!!

  6. zengreaser says: Feb 14, 2013 10:49 AM

    The same mentality that kept Griffin in that playoff game is the same mentality management has for his recovery. I fear this kid will be done in a couple years. Kirk Cousins should start the season. Maybe at the midpoint of the year, bring back Griffin, but even then why rush? This kid – if healthy – has a decade or more of football in him. The Redskins seem to be willing to trade all that in for…being able to start the first game of his SECOND SEASON???

  7. elliottcovert says: Feb 14, 2013 10:49 AM

    I feel like AP really made the expectations for rehab from a serious knee injury unrealistic for other players in the league. Medical science has advanced a lot in the past few decades, but it still has its limits. I feel like people take AP’s exceptional genetics for granted, and they’re going to expect that a full offseason recovery will be the new normal.

    That said, I definately hope RGIII heals back to 100%, what a dynamic young player, so fun to watch.

  8. manning10g says: Feb 14, 2013 10:50 AM

    Did he not have the ligaments before that?

  9. kwgator says: Feb 14, 2013 10:51 AM

    In 2014

  10. ajgreenshands says: Feb 14, 2013 10:52 AM

    Yeah, Why not? I mean, they let him play the last game with a blown knee… couldn’t be any worse.

  11. lightcleric says: Feb 14, 2013 10:52 AM

    I bet they thought he had a “legitimate chance” of getting through that playoff game too.

  12. buddybowl69 says: Feb 14, 2013 10:55 AM

    He’s young and healthy, and just may pull it off. But unless the Skins replace that terrible field, he and many other players will be injured again & again. It’s a shame that someone with the God given talents like RG3 will have his career cut short by something so simple as grass.

  13. knightsounds says: Feb 14, 2013 10:55 AM

    Do you know when I’ll care about these stories that state when RGIII will play again? When he’s actually on the field playing again!

  14. jasku880 says: Feb 14, 2013 10:58 AM

    dummies shouldnt be allowed to coach such talent. good job shanny for destroying your future qb.

  15. grandpoopah says: Feb 14, 2013 10:58 AM

    DC sports. Where the baseball team shuts down a star player for the playoffs out of fear he might re-tweak a 6 month old injury, but the football team can’t wait to throw its star player onto the field with half his leg hanging on by a thread.

  16. kingpel says: Feb 14, 2013 10:59 AM

    Translation: The Redskins have learned NOTHING.

  17. jbcommonsense says: Feb 14, 2013 10:59 AM

    RGIII, from now on, don’t let anybody rush you, or pressure you to play when your knee needs to recuperate. Your health is more important.

  18. daburgher says: Feb 14, 2013 11:00 AM

    skins wont be happy until they officially end this guys career.. what a shame

  19. coltzfan166 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:07 AM

    If they played him in the playoff game then they’ll play him in the opener

  20. mogogo1 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:09 AM

    If I ran the Skins I’d fire anybody making any statement beyond “we’re looking forward to him coming back.” Building anticipation for an early return is a horribly short-sighted idea. Now, if he makes it back for the opener that’s just what everyone was told to expect, but if it takes any longer the story becomes how he’s “way behind” in his recovery.

    And the crazy part is they might actually be better off if he didn’t make it back for the opener. Kaepernick last year was healthy for the playoffs probably in part because he only played half the season, while RG3 started from Day 1 and was hurt by the end.

  21. simmsmatic says: Feb 14, 2013 11:09 AM

    This kid isn’t Adrian Peterson. He’s not a workout-warrior that is practically Optimus Prime.

    He’s hard working, but he is not a work out warrior. The Redskins need to stop being so selfish, impatient, and eager and just let him heal. This is the second time he tore that ACL. One more slip up and he’s done and the Redskins are back to being one of the biggest laughing stocks in the NFL.

    This kid can turn around this franchise completely if he’s healthy. Him and Alfred Morris are a PROBLEM. But not if he gets rushed back into playing. He’s the first QB that I’ve seen remotely close to as mobile as Michael Vick with a legit and accurate arm. There have been plenty of mobile QBs with pinpoint accuracy; Aaron Rodgers, Steve Young and etc. But none of them have had world class speed to go along with it.

    But knowing the Skins… They will. And we might miss out on a potential QB that could be a star for years to come.

  22. goodellisruiningtheleague says: Feb 14, 2013 11:10 AM

    Well it was fun watching him while it lasted.

  23. stillers6 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:11 AM

    Mike Shanahan will run him out there regardless so saying he will play in the opener is a moot point.

  24. letmesetyoustraight says: Feb 14, 2013 11:11 AM

    Josh, you may think there will be checkpoints along the way to starting, but Shanahan has a different way of approaching this. He will start RG3 opening day whether he is ready or not. That’s the Shanahan way.

  25. greymares says: Feb 14, 2013 11:12 AM

    If there’s a way to screw this guy up Shanahan will find it.

  26. salventuri says: Feb 14, 2013 11:15 AM

    This guy won’t last another 2 years in the NFL when taking the Redskins poor judgement of rushing him back, the mess they call a field and his own propensity to play QB like a track star into account.

    He’s pretty much toast. Sad but true.

  27. allday28mvp says: Feb 14, 2013 11:18 AM

    as talented as this guy is he cleary looks like he will have a short career, and stubborn heads like shannahan dont no how to be give things time,already 3rd time his acl has been worked on, the redskins best draft pick last year might have been cousins not rg3

  28. sandersmarcus10 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:21 AM

    Wish him the best of luck on his rehad take your time.

  29. skinnyskins says: Feb 14, 2013 11:27 AM

    Everybody that is hating on the Redskins for announcing he has a “legitimate chance” to start need to calm down. Do you really expect them to announce he has no shot at starting? They need to sell season tickets you know.

  30. lightningbuggs says: Feb 14, 2013 11:36 AM

    Translation: We really want our season ticket holders to renew in spite of raising ticket prices for 2013.

  31. rgtre10 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:37 AM

    How can one site be the home to so many idiots??? How many of you have trained/worked out with RGIII? Better yet AP? How many of you did the surgery or know exactly what the doctors and trainers have him doing now which give them the expertise to make such a statement that he could be ready for opening day? None of you so all your stupid thoughts and are baseless and have no credibility. Dr Andrews did the surgery on AP, did it ever come to you based on those results he learned something and tweaked his procedure to actually enhance the chances of someone recovering even sooner?

  32. shlort says: Feb 14, 2013 11:42 AM

    Griffin should not be pressured into playing. These kinds of injuries take a year to fully recover from. Some players never recover from them, but Griff is young and should be able to get back.

    It would be a huge mistake for the ‘Skins to push Griffin to recover. That kid is going to be great and the last thing he needs is another knee injury.

    Get him healthy and then put him on the field. It has been a long time since the Redskins have had a good QB and good QBs are hard to come by.

  33. jimmymcnultysbottleofjameson says: Feb 14, 2013 11:44 AM

    No, I believe it’s called “first season ticket payment is due soon and Lil Danny better provide his fans some false hope.”

  34. geniusesq says: Feb 14, 2013 11:51 AM

    I’m a Skins fan. Want him to be back at the beginning of the year. But, I’d be fine with Kirk Cousins starting the first 4 games to give him that extra month & to see how good this team can be without him before deciding to bring him back too quickly.

  35. basballguy says: Feb 14, 2013 11:51 AM

    If Dusty Baker ran a football team, this is what would happen.

  36. jcaro5566 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:54 AM

    I bet this statement was only made to help out in the recruitng of free agents thinking that it might be easier to pursuade someone to join the team if RGIII is quarterbacking instead of Cousins.

    If not, remember that this is his same injury on the same knee so you cannot or must not try to compare him to AP.

  37. 1rockyracoon says: Feb 14, 2013 11:57 AM

    It’s not like the head coach would put him out there injured. Oh yeah,I almost forgot that’s how he got hurt in the first place. Their statement makes it much easier to sell luxury boxes and advertising.

  38. babych99 says: Feb 14, 2013 11:57 AM

    You go Shanny, run him into the ground again. What a disgrace, let the guy sit for a few weeks and roll with Kirk.

  39. dexterismyhero says: Feb 14, 2013 12:01 PM

    logicalvoice says he will be in Mini camp and the Skins will go undeafeated this next season.

  40. ken0west says: Feb 14, 2013 12:02 PM

    He is not playing in 2013, but the Redskins are and have tickets to sell.

  41. groupersandwich says: Feb 14, 2013 12:04 PM

    Yes, the Redskins will say Febru-anything to keep season ticket demand high.

  42. jamaltimore says: Feb 14, 2013 12:05 PM

    Deadskin fans please take a moment to consider that you have a great NFL organization already playing in MD who happens to be Superbowl Champs. I love RG3 but the idiots who run the skins don’t deserve your money or faithfullness any longer. Get yourself some Black and Purple and hope Danny sells soon!

    Seriously if RG3 gets used in DC the way it’s going so far than that has to be the final straw!

  43. tmkelley1 says: Feb 14, 2013 12:06 PM

    Last line: “It’s certainly better than the alternative, but we’re still a good distance away from serious talk about starting the opener.”

    Then why are you talking about it? I know, I know, it’s called “fill,” and you need all of that you can find for the next two months

  44. manilarizzo says: Feb 14, 2013 12:15 PM

    I continue to be amazed by the “Shanny and the skins will ruin him”. Do you seriously think Shanny wasn’t listening to RG3 in that Seattle game and has since made it vehemently clear that he will make the decisions from here out? Do you think a two-time bowl winning coah wants his legacy to be the guy who ruined RG3? I don’t think so. Get over it. Get over the lambasting. He will come back when ready but not at the expense of his health/career. Quit with the simpleton assumptions.


  45. baddegg says: Feb 14, 2013 12:19 PM

    It makes me really nervous them saying this.

    From a football perspective, it absolutely makes sense to say, “as of now, we’re planning on the fact that Kirk Cousins will start the season, but if Robert can go, of course he’ll start the season.”

    This would set the right expectation with the team and quite frankly with the coaching staff, who needs to prepare game plans for all contingencies.

    Saying the RGIII will likely start the season smacks of a marketing move designed to sell tickets. No value from a football perspective, and quite frankly irritating to me as a Redskin fan.

  46. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 14, 2013 12:19 PM

    If RGIII is smart he’ll voluntarily submit to HGH testing throughout his recovery so if he does get back by the beginning of the season there will be no way anyone can claim he healed so quickly because of PEDs.

  47. jahbird says: Feb 14, 2013 12:24 PM

    The chicken littles really came out for this one; watch out guys, the sky is falling.

    Meaningless statement, not attributed to any source, in a meaningless time of year. Yawn.

  48. bigbenh8tr says: Feb 14, 2013 12:24 PM

    This is hilarious. Look at a smart player w a very smart coach in Chicago right now. Derick Rose said he won’t play until he is 110%.
    Still leaves people guessing by saying it could be tomorrow, next week/month, or next year but not til I’m ready. When a team accepts you as a TRUE franchise player (not when you have played extremely well for 13 games) then the decision is put into your hands.

    Believe all you read about how its his decision but it’s understand he isn’t sitting on the bench until Shanahan asks him to take a seat and announce Cousins as the starter.

    Enjoy 15 more years of misery once he aggravates it again.


    Your Valentine

  49. balzer41 says: Feb 14, 2013 12:44 PM

    The Skins are bound and determined to ruin any kind of future this kid has. It will be just like them to throw him back out there before he’s really ready.

  50. phinfan says: Feb 14, 2013 12:49 PM

    And I say Cousins has legitimate chance of finishing the season for him.

  51. granadafan says: Feb 14, 2013 12:51 PM

    Not a Skins fan, but I hope they don’t rush him back before he’s ready. Watching RG shred defenses was fun to watch for football fans, and I’d hate to see him crippled because they pressured him to return early or didn’t protect him from himself like the Nationals did with Strasbourg.

  52. hateforeveryone says: Feb 14, 2013 1:09 PM

    Snyder just wants to ensure he can squeeze every bit of fan interest in the name of ticket sales. Nothing more than that with these foolish proclamations they’re making about this kid’s recovery.

  57. q1ller says: Feb 14, 2013 1:22 PM

    The Redskins are always determined that he play regardless of injury, etc. They are seriously going to burn through this guy in a handful of years.

  58. ballinmore says: Feb 14, 2013 1:23 PM

    Sounds like Dan is planning to raise ticket prices and needed to ensure they get sold early.

  59. thetroofishere says: Feb 14, 2013 1:28 PM

    I guess their club level seats must go on sale this week.

  60. zn0rseman says: Feb 14, 2013 1:29 PM

    The best thin to happen for the Redskins chances of winning next year would be for Kirk Cousins to start and continue playing for the remainder of the year. He is not as flashy as Griffin but he is a better NFL QB.

  61. trollaikman8 says: Feb 14, 2013 1:41 PM

    Can’t help but read that as “ligament chance”.

    There’s no way he’s gonna be rushed back.
    Go ahead and screenshot : Week 6 he returns.

  62. commonsensedude says: Feb 14, 2013 1:44 PM

    There is a significant chance Shanahan will need to go into the Witness Protection program if they rush RG3 back too soon and his career is ruined as a result of it.

  63. obnoxiousDCfan says: Feb 14, 2013 1:57 PM

    Lot of doctors commenting on this story…

  64. FinFan68 says: Feb 14, 2013 2:00 PM

    They thought it was a good idea to start him his last game too. If he can walk, he can start. That does not make it a good idea. The issue is whether he is healed or not when he does start. I doubt he will make a comeback that quickly. As others have stated, it looks like a way to keep ticket purchasers interested and hopeful.

  65. somekat says: Feb 14, 2013 2:14 PM

    I believe the redskins have a “Legitimate chance” of ruining RG3’s career by week 8 of his second season

  66. proBirdie says: Feb 14, 2013 2:18 PM

    So did Derrick Rose

  67. gocaps8 says: Feb 14, 2013 2:21 PM

    Got my season ticket invoice. The team raised ticket prices. Renewals are due by April 1. Schefter is close to Shanahan after writing his book together. RG3 is in jeopardy of missing games.

    Add all that up and it might be that Schefter is shilling for Shanahan/Allen to encourage a higher ticket renewal rate.

  68. cmarsh64 says: Feb 14, 2013 2:23 PM

    Lets remember that RGIII had the same injury in 2009 at Baylor and had a good year in 2010 but not the same level as 2011. When you have the same injury twice in 3 years its not a good thing to rush him this time. Play cousins and make him more valuable as trade bait. Like Greenbay did with Matt Flynn, he couldn’t beat out R. Wilson but Green bay got draft pics. Next years draft looks a little deeper at QB so trade Cousins say to the Chiefs,Cardinals, Jets,Miami or Oakland. You can bet these teams will be in the top 5 in next years draft.

  69. theclaim says: Feb 14, 2013 2:31 PM

    Seattle fans knee ankle and leg Injuries occur at a 22% higher rate on TURF field or otherwise. Curt Warner ended his career on YOUR carpet. Ever hear of Grass Toe? Nope! RGIII and Clemons WILL be back next year. 1st game? Hope not, make sure it’s SOLID.

  70. jprcox says: Feb 14, 2013 2:36 PM

    I say it every time. Everyone needs to get the idea that it is great to have a mobile/running QB out of their head. RG3 may be one of the best QB’s in the NFL, but no one will know that if he is hurt and unable to pay.

    Every time I read about how the “Read Option Pass/Run” is the next best thing I roll my eyes since what happened with RG3 is exactly why you dont feature this sort of offense. Luck played and is fine for next year in his playoff game – RG3 didn’t fair well – and his team lost.

  71. blazecili says: Feb 14, 2013 2:38 PM

    Can we please be realistic here ? Griffin will never be better physically than he was in his age 23 season. I am sorry to pee on everyone’s parade, but those are the facts.

  72. jp4120 says: Feb 14, 2013 2:48 PM

    of course Shanny would say that.

    his history of handling RG3 when he was basically hopping around out there proves he either is a moron or doesn’t care about the kid.

    nothing funnier than watching Shanny lie to the press afterwards…..

  73. toybkshr says: Feb 14, 2013 2:50 PM

    Legitimate chance doesn’t quite sound convincing.

    stevenreichert says: Feb 14, 2013 10:42 AM

    Come on. It’s too early to tell. Sounds like the Skins are trying to put a good spin on their bad decisions which contributed to this injury in the first place.
    Obviously it’s too early to tell, but what exactly is the problem with good spin? Everyone seems to be reading way too much into the “legitimate chance”. There is a “chance” I will start for the Redskins next year. Obviously Griff’s chances are much higher than mine, and all the organization is saying is that it is a possibility, nothing more. The press release is not meant to convey anything more than optimism about his rate of recovery.

    Whatever your opinion of Griffin, Shanahan, or the Redskins, these are not stupid people. They made a mistake, and it won’t happen again. No one will put any pressure on Griffin to do anything before they’re 100% sure his body can handle it.

  79. xli2006 says: Feb 14, 2013 4:07 PM

    Just over 1 month removed from major reconstructive knee surgery of a Mobile / Scrambling QB and you’re talking about him starting on Day 1 already?

    Ask D Rose about ACL rehab. Earlier in the day ESPN runs an interview with him, Paxson, and his trainer about his rehab and he said he was taking it slowly and will return when ready. That is the RIGHT way to handle an ACL. Not to mention, D Rose doesn’t have 300 pound DLinemen tackling him every game, RG3 does.

    Wanting to be ready on Day 1 and proclaiming 7 months ahead that he’ll be ready on Day 1 are 2 completely different things.

    Crazy thing about an ACL injury… it’s not up to the Redskins or RG3, IT’S UP TO THE ACL when he’s ready.

  80. triangletaddler says: Feb 14, 2013 4:14 PM

    If he’s ready he’s ready. Worst case scenario, IMO, is that he’s put on the PUP list for six weeks.

    Then Kirk Cousins goes 4-2, looks like a stud, and the Redskins trade him to Arizona, NYJ or some other schmuck for a first and a third.

  81. 1standinches says: Feb 14, 2013 4:29 PM

    Rest him as long as you can, please dont rush to comeback too soon.

  82. midwestwarrior says: Feb 14, 2013 4:33 PM

    wasnt this said about peyton mannings neck being healing ahead of schedule and he would be ready to play in week 1 also?

  83. chattanola says: Feb 14, 2013 4:34 PM

    Also, we’re talking about a R ACL repair, but if I’m not mistaken, his L knee was used to donate tendons (or something) because in repairing his previous injury, the R knee tendons had already been used.

    So both knees have been compromised and are both in need of rehab.

    Hope they don’t (let him) rush this just to be starting on opening day.

  84. edavidberg says: Feb 14, 2013 4:43 PM

    Redskins are the only franchise in the league that would have let their star QB play with a wheel as bad as RG’s against Seattle. It’s not surprising they are willing to risk him in game 1 of next year. If I were a Redskins fan I would be beside myself over Dan Snyder’s stupidity.

  85. peytonsneck18 says: Feb 14, 2013 5:09 PM

    RG3 has a legitimate chance at shoveling HGH in his veins to try and make it back for opening day

  88. bthomas22x says: Feb 14, 2013 6:32 PM

    Ok, so I tried to post earlier, but for some strange reason, I don’t see it on here anywhere. Maybe, I’m short bus special tonight and messed it up somehow. Oh well, take 2 right? lol.

    Speaking from experience, after having my ACL reconstructed 4 times, I would not be making any goals to get back as soon as week 1. The only goal I would be making is to get back as soon as possible, AFTER getting as close to normal as possible. Unfortunately, the percentage of a chance that it will return to normal drops with each surgery, and seeing as he’s on his second it’s now below 50%. With that being said, I’m just a retired vet, he’s a professional athlete so his treatment/care will be 10x that of what was available to me. Anywho, basically what I’m trying to get at is unless he keeps it braced, and can be as close to normal both physically and mentally, I wouldn’t try to rush it for week 1.

    I also saw someone posted that he had his first injury in 2009 while with Baylor, then he returned for a ‘better’ 2010 season only to drop back a little for 2011. I understand that you want it to be similar… But this is not the NCAA anymore. This is the NFL now, so everything is more aggressive. I’m not a Redskins fan, but I actually don’t mind RGIII; he’s entertaining, so I’m rooting for him to pull through it better than expected. Unfortunately, based on personal experience, it doesn’t have the best percentage of a chance that it will. Still, I’ll keep my fingers crossed and I’ll say a prayer for him. (Like I said, I’m not a Redskins fan, so I’ll pray for ONLY him haha).

    Thanks for reading. I’m going to be starting my own blog, so feel free to keep a look-out.

    RGIII will not play until at least the 8th game of this upcoming season. He will take over a undefeated and 8-0 Redskins team. Signed: Kirk Cousins

    Rush him back out there, and he’s likely to break again.
    Better keep him throwing from the pocket a little more.
    Unless of course, they’re looking to draft another QB in a couple of years…

    I Han an ACL total rupture and a MCL tear, it really takes 18 months. I hope for RG3’s future, even beyond football, he takes the time to really heal. He never should have been playing in the playoffs. Shame on Mike Shannahan.
