While recovering from major knee reconstruction surgery, Robert Griffin III has been cleared by his doctors to attend the NFL’s Award ceremony on the eve of Super Bowl 47.

According to CSN Washington:

Our own Chick Hernandez, tweeted:

Sources tell me RGIII rehab going well. Docs cleared him 2 travel. RGIII will be @NewOrleans 2morrow nite to take part in NFL awards show.

Here is an update from Chick at 4:15 p.m.:

Rehab going well for @rgiii He’s up & walking. Will be in New Orleans tomorrow night. Finalist for NFL Offensive ROY

Chick could not confirm whether or not Griffin III would be on crutches.

So, is he walking without assistance? What will be the degree or his mobility?

Does this mean he is going to nab the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award? Those questions and more will be answered Saturday night.

Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson are other rookies who are in contention for that same award.
