Of course, like many observers, they think the season hinges on their franchise QB Robert Griffin III and his recovery from a devastating knee injury. While they're not the most complete team, they do have a good squad who should continue where they left off in 2012...
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Washington Redskins will likely take the same precautions that the Vikings did with Adrian Peterson and have Robert Griffin III start training camp on the PUP list and than likely activate him two weeks later. Scenario laid out for me on RGIII: Look at Adrian Peterson. Same ACL injury. Started camp on PUP list, was active within 2...
The rumors are flying around that Robert Griffin III will start training camp on the PUP list. Just to let everyone know, this is to be expected and is not a huge concern. To our knowledge he hasn’t had any set backs and if there was a game today, he more than likely “could” suit up. I think is safe to say he’s healthier today than he ever was in the month of December last...
The sky will be the limit for the Washington Redskins this season if–and its a very big ‘if’–they can get healthy and stay healthy. While the exact return date of quarterback Robert Griffin III is not known yet, the team does know when one of his major weapons is going to return. After his
Overall outlook : Running backs, receivers, blah, blah, blah. There's one elephant-sized fantasy question with this team, and he was last seen hobbling around FedEx Field during a wildcard round loss to the Seahawks in January.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters that he was sure he

In his rookie year in the NFL, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III managed to maintain a fairly squeaky clean image, minus a minor uproar over his wedding registry. But now that he’s a solidified stud, it seems RG III may be letting more than his hair down.
According to a salacious report from Busted Coverage, the newly married NFL star is in the middle of a sexting scandal...
Robert Griffin III said this offseason that, "without a doubt," he'd be ready for Day 1 of training camp. But it's unclear if the Washington Redskins will let their quarterback hit the field right away.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" that no decision has been made about Griffin starting training camp...
Robert Griffin III's reign as the No. 1 selling jersey in the NFL is over. Now he is still one of the top selling jerseys in the league and was from April 1, 2012, through March 31 of this year. Since then someone else--a couple guys actually have bested the Redskins superstar.
Any guesses as to who?
The honor now belongs to this guy:
From April through June...
What a difference a year makes. Last year, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III aka RGIII led all players in the top 10 NFL jerseys sold. After a very successful season, but devastating end to the season he has been replaced as the top dog. Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers has taken the [...]
