Kirk Cousins, who stands to benefit most if Robert Griffin III isn't ready to start the 2013 season, says the quarterback should be ready to go by that time.
"Robert looked awesome," Cousins told NFL AM. "I'm not just saying that. Obviously, he is a bit of a freak in terms of his athleticism, but he's healed very quickly. He couldn't practice with us, he was on a spate field doing drills all spring ... he looked really good, and I think he'll be ready to go in Week 1. But obviously my mindset is to be ready no matter what. And I'm getting ready all summer, so I can be ready if called upon."
Griffin, a rookie sensation a year ago after winning the Heisman Trophy at Baylor, is coming off an ACL injury suffered in the NFC playoffs last year.
