Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told The Washington Post that he’s spoken with Vikings running back Adrian Peterson about recovering from ACL surgery.
“I talked to Adrian Peterson,” said Griffin. “That’s the obvious one.”
Griffin was asked what Peterson told him.
“What everyone else says,” Griffin replied.
Griffin says he’s also spoken to Rex Grossman who also tore his ACL earlier in his career.
“I’ve already been through the injury once,” said Griffin, who also tore his ACL at Baylor. “I’m not all-knowing about the injury so I listen to guys. You know, Adrian said what everyone else said. I’m not Adrian. Adrian’s not me. Everybody’s body heals a little bit differently. Rex [Grossman, the Redskins’ third-string quarterback] also tore an ACL in his career. He’s talked to me about the uncertainties that he had with the injury.
“My view is always, even from the first one, you come back like you were never hurt because that’s the only way you can play. You don’t play the game afraid to get hurt. You play the game like you’re supposed to be invincible, while at the same time being smart and sliding and all the other stuff.”
