Dr. James Andrews told NFL Network's Ian Rapport that Robert Griffin III's rehab after reconstructive surgery on his knee is "way ahead of schedule." In fact, the biggest challenge has been keeping the QB from overdoing it.

"We don't have to do much except try to hold him back," said Andrews. “Our whole mode is to do what’s best for him for his career, not necessarily what’s best for the first game next season."
