The Washington Redskins are encouraged enough with
quarterback Robert Griffin III’s recovery to believe he has a “legitimate
chance” to start on opening day, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Redskins officials already are encouraged enough with @rgiii's recovery to believe he has a legitimate chance to start on opening day.

Griffin underwent major knee surgery last month, as his lateral
collateral ligament and ACL were both operated on. He’s said all along that it’s
his goal to return for Week 1 of the 2013 season.
There have been projections that Griffin could be required
to miss a few games to start next season, and there are seven months between
now and Week 1. This is a lot of time, during which setbacks can occur.
Still, given the recent histories of players returning from
similar injuries, including Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson and Kansas City
Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles, it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that Griffin
is able to meet his targeted timeframe.
