Found April 07, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told NFL.com that he expects quarterback Robert Griffin III to “set a record from coming back” from knee surgery because of how hard the second-year player is working at his rehab. We’ve already heard surgeons term RGIII as superhuman in the progress he’s shown thus far. Now, his coach is heaping the praise on, indicating Griffin could be ready to go at the beginning of the season. Still, Shanahan cautioned that it is a process with Griffin in going through, and it will take time for him to get all the way back. The quarterback will not rush things and attempt to return until he’s “100 percent” ready. Shanahan’s comments also indicate that the team isn’t interested in switching from the read-option offense, as the coach said he feels this style actually protects his quarterback. It will be interesting to continue to following Griffin’s recovery, and if he’s able to continue producing without getting hurt in Washington’s current system.

Should the Redskins Kick the Tires on Charles Woodson?

Seeing as Charles Woodson has no takers right now, and with the thought that he still has a few years left in the tank, should the Redskins kick the tires on him and put him at free safety? Woodson hasn’t garnered much attention in free agency, which to me is surprising. Maybe Woodson’s asking price is too much but that hasn’t been reported. “For the right price,” the Redskins...
