Robert Griffin III May Be Healthy Enough to Start the Redskins' Season Opener in September

Robert Griffin III May Be Healthy Enough to Start the Redskins' Season Opener in SeptemberBrad Mills/USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Rose may be taking his time when it comes to returning to live action following an ACL tear. But, Robert Griffin III reportedly isn't taking the same approach. Although he still has a looooooong way to go before he's fully healed from the ACL and LCL tears that he suffered during the Redskins loss to the Seahawks in the NFL Playoffs last month, several team and league sources told ESPN recently that they believe RGIII will be ready to go by the start of the 2013-14 NFL season. Is it wishful thinking? Maybe. But, at the very least, it means that RGIII is going to try to come back as soon as possible. And, that should come as great news to everyone who saw the devastating injury that he suffered last season.
