Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III wants to get out on the field during the preseason. His coach doesn’t want to rush him. According to RGIII’s doctor, he has recommended to the Redskins that Griffin sit out until after the BYE week. The Redksins BYE week isn’t until week 5 of the season.
Sources tell me RG3's dr, James Andrews, has recommended to #redskins that Griffin not play until after bye wk. Wash bye is week 5.

Well then. It looks like we have a difference in opinions here.
What should the Redskins do with their star quarterback? Should they rest him till his recommended time or should they listen to the player and get him back onto the field. That is a tough decision that Coach Mike Shannahan will have to make.
Can we meet at an even ground? How does week 1 sound?
Honestly, the Redskins have a decent backup quarterback in Kirk Cousins that can hold down the fort for a few games. RGIII can rest up and start tearing the league up after the BYE.
