01:12 PM ET 05.25 | Robert Griffin III is still on the road to recovery and nobody is confident in giving a time frame for his return, though the hope is that he'll be ready in Week 1. The Washington Redskins gave up a lot to get Griffin, but his injury has not dimmed their opinion of him. As noted by NFL.com, head coach Mike Shanahan believes Griffin can be one of the all-time greats when it's all said and done. "If Robert plays like he did (in 2012) the rest of his career, he'll go down as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game," Shanahan said Thursday following one of the team's organized team activity sessions. That's a lot of praise, given that the NFL is essentially defined by the great quarterbacks to play the game. Washington gave up three first-round picks and a second-round pick to move up and select Griffin in the 2012 NFL Draft. He injured his knee in Week 14 last year, and controversy arose when Griffin played on the injured knee in the Redskins' Wildcard matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Whether or not staying in will ultimately hurt his career is anybody's guess.

Shanahans will rush him back too early, work him too hard and grind him up by game 6.FAIL !

Uh, yup.

I guess it got down too the matter of the HC ,That wanted that playoff spot'[ over so many years],' rolling them bones', and crippled the QB by not caring about what RG3 had too say.

It's still funny going back to the 72 hours following the injury. The Doctor and The Coach, fighting to get the other under the bus.

RG will be in rare company if he comes back like AP.
