The Washington Redskins will be relying on Robert Griffin III, and his knee, to take them back to the playoffs in 2013. As he continues his remarkable recovery, he's yet to face a significant setback.
Mike Jones of the Washington post tweeted yesterday that Griffin has gone three straight days of making cuts and changing directions with no adverse effects.

While Griffin's ACL seems to be recovering nicely, fans and coaches will be holding their collective breath when he trots back into a live game for the first time. Griffin has been very confident to this point in his recovery, and Adrian Peterson's recovery from a season ago is even more reason for the Griffin camp to be optimistic.
The goal of Griffin being ready for week one of the regular season seems, at this point, entirely possible if not probable. The beauty for the Redskins is that the further ahead of schedule Griffin gets in his rehab, the less they'll need to worry about putting him on a football field before he's ready to be hit.
