Andrews says RGIII is ‘well on his way to recovery’

By Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post. By Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post.

For a guy who isn’t giving any interviews about Robert Griffin III’s knee, Dr. James Andrews is sure giving a lot of interviews about Robert Griffin III’s knee.

In fairness, Andrews is out promoting his book, “Any Given Monday,” which is what first brought him into the news. Since then, the surgeon has done several more book promotion interviews, and many of his wise interviewers — recognizing the topic of the moment — have asked Andrews about RGIII.

Thus, this, via Inside SoCal’sTom Hoffarth:

“Of course not,” Andrews said the other morning, asked if he was concerned how his actions were perceived. “People don’t understand what goes on down on the football field. [Mike Shanahan] didn’t know what we were really saying. I’ve put that all behind me now.”…

He said he wasn’t at liberty to explain how RGIII’s surgery went, only that he’s “well on his way to recovery” and, after eight months of projected rehab, he’ll likely start the 2013 season.

I mean, “well on his way to recovery” and “will likely start the 2013 season” aren’t exactly juicy updates on what’s happening inside that precious joint. But they’re about as good as we can get right now, especially since the surgeon in charge of things isn’t giving interviews on the topic.
