Mike Shanahan Says Redskins QB Robert Griffin Will 'Set A Record For Coming Back'
Mike Shanahan keeps saying the Redskins don't have a timetable for the return of rehabbing Robert Griffin III but he also keeps saying Griffin’s recovery from ACL surgery is progressing at warp speed.
The end result is the coach is building expectations for a triumphant return by Griffin at the start of the season. Visions of Adrian Peterson are already dancing in the heads of Redskins fans. Indirectly, the pressure is building on RG3 to perform at a pre-injury level—or better--immediately.
“He’s over at the facility, rehabbing all of the time,” Shanahan told the NFL Network via ProFootballTalk.com. “He’ll set a record for coming back because that’s how hard he works.
“He is ahead, but there’s a process. It takes time. Robert will do it the right way and we’ll find out in July exactly where he’s at. He will not come back until he’s 100 percent.”
Shanahan disagrees with critics who say the read-option offense puts Griffin at too much risk, saying the danger factor will be limited when Griffin simply learns to slide.
“When most people take a look and they take a look at Robert, they’re thinking, ‘Oh, you can’t run the option,’ ” Shanahan said. “People don’t realize that the option protects the quarterback. The thing I have to get with Robert is when to slide, when not to take a hit. These quarterbacks are so competitive but they don’t realize sometimes how valuable they are to your franchise.”

The guy is a franchise qb. They would be smart to play it safe and not rush him back into game action. Griffin will be there for a long time most likely.
Thanks to 86WARD for the sig!
