Washington, DC, United States (NewsBahn) – Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has bad news for opposing defenses: his surgically repaired knee feels completely fine and he’s ready to go.
The talented signal-caller told a D.C. radio station he’s primed for the team’s season-opener.
“I would say I’m 100 percent, but you can’t put a number on it,” he told 980′s Kevin Sheehan. “No one ever knows when they are 100 percent or what percentage they’re playing at. The biggest thing is, I’m not below 100 percent.”
A hit by Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata at the end of a second-down scramble on Dec. 9. caused the original ailment but RG III says he’s fully shaken off its effects.
“I just think I’m ready to go, I’m ready to play,” Griffin said, “and, if anything, Coach and the organization holding me back has made me that much more hungry. I didn’t think that was possible, but it definitely worked.”
He was terrific in 2012, throwing for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions.
