Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start running for the first time next week since having surgery to repair ligaments on his right knee, reports the Washington Post.

Griffin's father, Robert Griffin, Jr., told the paper that his son is expected to receive clearance to start running on the field next week.

“He’s been running in the pool, and some on the treadmill,” he told The Post. “But they’re just about ready to take it out on the field.”

Griffin tore the anterior cruciate ligament, lateral collateral ligament and meniscus in his right knee during the Redskins 24-14 playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks and had surgery Jan. 9 to repair all three ligaments.

From the Washington Post:

The details of Griffin’s rehabilitation had largely been kept under wraps aside from a few vague updates from Coach Mike Shanahan, orthopedic surgeon James Andrews and most recently, Griffin himself. Griffin last week reiterated his goal of returning to the field by the start of the 2013 season, but he added that he wouldn’t risk a setback that could damage his career long-term.
