According to Jim Corbett of USA Today Sports, Robert Griffin III’s father says his son is still ahead of schedule with his rehab and has been throwing a football since late April.
“Robert is doing extremely well as far as the timetable,” Robert Griffin II sald. “He’s been doing a lot over time, he never stops.
“He was throwing some prior to the draft. Everything seems to be on cue. Everybody in the organization is targeting that season opener.”
Griffin even tweeted today that he threw some passes while rolling out.
Today…. Treadmill Run…..Threw the football around & a couple roll out throws… But some take Friday off…

RG3’s father even said that his son is rehabbing faster this time around compared to when he tore his ACL at Baylor.
“He might be a little ahead of himself in terms of doing what he did then compared to now,” RGII said. “He’s smarter, stronger, wiser.”
It continues to look like Griffin is on track for the Skins’ season opener.
