Cheer up Redskins fans! In an interview with USA Today the father of Robert Griffin III says he’s “doing great” and that RGIII will play on Sunday in spite of his sprained knee.
RGIII injured his knee in Sunday’s game against the Ravens and the Washington Redskins need the popular quarterback now more than ever. Sunday’s win boosted their record to 7-6 making them one game behind the NFC-East leaders, the NY Giants. Father Griffin says RGIII is ready to go. According to USA Today, he said:
“He definitely said he plans to start. I haven’t seen him (the last two days). But he told me (today) everything has gone well.”
After some mild swelling, the knee has responded.
“He’s doing rehabilitation as far as the impact pain working with that,” Griffin’s dad said. “Monday he said he felt really good. Today he felt better. Every day he’s getting better. Monday he had no problems and throughout the workout, he had no problems.”
RGIII has been a phenom all season. He has certainly lived up and played up the hype and a restored knee only further restores hope in a team vying for playoff contention.
