Robert Griffin III, just like Derrick Rose or any athlete before him, should take his time before coming back from a major knee injury.
Everyone can’t be Adrian Peterson. There is a lot of pressure on RG3 to be ready when the season starts and while some of that comes from fans and media, I also think in the back of his mind, he knows Kirk Cousins is lingering in the background.
I am not sure what motivated RG3 to make a statement, because it should be common sense to rational people, but here is what he had to say.
Feel like I need to say this..Although my goal is to start Week 1, that doesn't mean I will compromise my career to do so.
