Redskins | Robert Griffin needs time to recover

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (knee) recovery from knee surgery points to a possible disconnect between himself and the team. There is a sense that Griffin will surely be ready for Week 1 of the 2013 season; however, according to a person close to Griffin, the optimism must be toned down for now. "I don't understand why we're talking about how close he is to playing or not right now. Let him just get better; there's a long way to go," the source said. The feeling from some of those close to Griffin is that both the team and others around Griffin will put undue pressure on him to return too quickly. "Again, it's been like six weeks; what are we doing this for?" the source added. "He's not running yet ... It's ridiculous to talk about."
