Report: Redskins' Griffin could start opener

The SportsXchange

Nearly a little more than a month after Robert Griffin III underwent reconstructive knee surgery, Washington Redskins officials feel he can start the 2013 regular-season opener, according to an ESPN report.

Griffin has been rehabbing in Washington. People who know him compare him to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who returned to the MVP award the season after major knee surgery.

Griffin was named The Associated Press 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year after setting an NFL record for best passer rating by a rookie quarterback. He also led the Redskins to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

He tore his ACL and LCL ligaments in the wild-card playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
