Last we heard from Dr. James Andrews, it was early January and he had just completed reconstructing the right knee of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III . At that time, he proclaimed that Griffin would be ready for the 2013 season. A couple of months have passed, and Andrews is speaking again about Griffin. And he is pumping up the rhetoric.
"His recovery has been unbelievable so far," Andrews told ESPN on Friday.
"RG III is one of those superhumans. First patient I ever had like that was Bo Jackson. And recently I, of course, had Adrian Peterson, who is also superhuman. They have an unbelievable ability to recover, where as a normal human being may not be able to recover."
Redskins tight end Fred Davis expressed similar sentiments Friday morning, and pretty much every word about Griffin's recovery has been glowingly positive. That's great. We would all rather have it that way than hearing about how slowly he is coming along. But we can't get ahead of ourselves. More than five months remain until the start of the 2013 season. Griffin is taking his recovery one day at a time. We should do the same.
