Mike Shanahan: RG3 will “Set A Record” For Recovery From Knee Surgery
Robert Griffin III is rehabbing hard from his ACL surgery. If you let the people around him tell hit he’s having a super human recovery.
A week after Dr. James Andrews referred to RG3’s recovery as such, his head coach Mike Shanahan has chimed in as well. On NFL Network, Shanahan during an interview said “RG3 will set a record for his recovery.
“He’s over at the facility, rehabbing all of the time. He’ll set a record for coming back because that’s how hard he works,” Shanahan said.
Shanahan did caution that they won’t rush Griffin III back.
“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,” Shanahan said. “He will not come back until he’s 100 percent.”
“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.”
