Shanahan: Griffin III 'Stronger Than Expected'

Posted Mar 12, 2013

Redskins HC Mike Shanahan passes along positive news on QB Robert Griffin III and the other injured Redskins working toward recovery.

According to head coach Mike Shanahan, Redskins head coach Robert Griffin III is making significant progress rehabbing his knee injury and is still ahead of schedule.

"Robert is doing well," he said. "He’s getting some great work in here, working out a couple times a day, about six hours a day, six-seven hours. He is ahead of schedule according to [Head Athletic Trainer] Larry [Hess]."

Griffin III tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) during the fourth quarter of the Redskins' Wild Card loss to the Seattle Seahawks on January 6.

After having his knee surgically repaired by renowned knee specialist Dr. James Andrews, Griffin III and the team doctors have given nothing but positive updates on his rehab progress.

"That means the muscles are stronger than they anticipated and he is doing everything he can to be ready for this season," Shanahan explained. "Is he going to be ready? I have no idea. I’m sure keeping my fingers crossed, and if work has anything to do with it, he probably will.

"I will be able to tell you more about that in July."

Shanahan also updated soon to be free agent tight end Fred Davis, who is recovering nicely from an Achilles injury suffered in Week 7 against the New York Giants.

"Fred Davis, same thing. He is working extremely hard, doing everything we were hoping that he would be able to do at this time," Shanahan said. "He is not ready yet, but he will be ready for this season.

"I do not think there will be any setbacks but I have not gotten a chance to see Fred run. You can tell he is in great shape."

The Redskins suffered the loss of two Texas linebackers last season, with Brian Orakpo and Keenan Robinson each suffering torn pectoral muscles.

Shanahan said the pair were working out together in Texas and were well on the road to recovery.

"[Orakpo] is doing great. He is in Austin, [Texas]; he is working out with [linebacker] Keenan [Robinson]," Shanahan said. "[Orakpo] is feeling really good.

"Keenan is making some strides as well. He should be back ready to go with no setbacks."
