After witnessing Adrian Peterson’s meteoric rise following an ACL injury, we didn’t really know what to expect from an equally captivating Robert Griffin III. According to a recent report, it’s likely he won’t disappoint.

“I’ve said it a bunch a times,” Griffin said. “I’m pretty confident I’ll be ready.”

“I’m planning ahead to make sure I do the things I have to do while I’m on that honeymoon,” he said. “And I think I’m a responsible guy, so I’ll make sure I do everything I have to, to be ready — cutting, running, working out — and so when I get back and they see me, they’ll be not only impressed, but they’ll feel safe and sound to put me out there.”

Surprisingly enough Griffin has been running more than throwing in the team’s OTAs. And at first glance he appears fully recovered; showing “explosive sprinting” in practice. He also appears to be making strides from a mental standpoint, reiterating that he has to play without fear. Which begs the question, is it possible that he’s overconfident?

That’s obviously not my call, only time will tell. But from what we’ve seen so far, Griffin seems as if he’s on track to return without missing a beat and should be suiting up from day one.
