Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says RGIII is "ahead of schedule" in his return from knee surgery.||||||| Shanahan, speaking at the NFL owners meeting on Wednesday, said that when Griffin comes back, he must learn how to protect himself in the face of the fierce defenses in the NFL. Once Griffin does come back, Shanahan says the young quarterback needs to learn to slide and throw the ball away to avoid the big hits that lead to injuries.

Griffin III did not show a hint of a limp while walking up and down the red carpet before accepting The Associated Press 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award Saturday night.||||||| Tough to tell the Washington Redskins quarterback had surgery to repair two ligaments in his right knee less than a month ago. "It's truly a blessing ... to be able to stand, first and foremost," Griffin said.
