RG3 walks up to accept award
The main headline was that Robert Griffin III won the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award. The subhead was that he walked up to the stage to accept the award.
As you can see in the red carpet video here, if you didn’t know that RG3 was three and a half weeks removed from reconstructive knee surgery, you wouldn’t know.
It is a long way from being able to walk down a red carpet and up to a stage in February and lining up behind center in September. When watching him walk last night I recalled that he walked into the postgame news conference after the Seattle loss and it was impossible to tell that he had just sustained major damage to that knee. So, in a way, he didn’t demonstrate that he could do anything he couldn’t do the day he was injured.
Those pessimistic notes aside, it would be foolish to bet against Griffin being ready for the 2013 season opener.
In case you missed it
