Redskins | Robert Griffin doing more on the field

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (knee) has been doing light sprinting, has been cleared for cross-field drills and ran two miles earlier this week. He will next move to "explosive sprinting" but realizes he has to be "patiently aggressive" in his rehab. Griffin said his rehab from knee surgery has allowed him to do more film study on his own and with the coaches. He said he's on a timetable to be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is a heck of an athlete, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him return ahead of schedule. Everything he's done during his rehab so far suggests that he can make that happen. However, because of the nature of his injury and the fact that he runs often and puts himself in harm's way, it'd be wise to equip yourself with a high-end backup QB if you bank on Griffin as your QB1 this year.
