According to a report in The Washington Post, Robert Griffin III has stepped up his activity to test his injured right knee and the joint responded favorably.

When he spoke to the gathered media for the first time during OTAs on May 23, he said that there were two phases left in the rehab process for his reconstructed knee—explosive sprinting and cutting.

He accomplished the sprinting over the last two weeks and he began cutting this week. The drills involved sprinting in one direction and the plating and cutting the other way. He did these for three consecutive days and, according to the source who spoke to the Post, there were no setbacks of any kind.

While this certainly seems favorable for Griffin’s return in time for the start of training camp on July 25, it remains to be seen if that will happen. Griffin will undergo a physical just prior to the start of camp and only then can he be cleared to participate.
