RGIII has Redskins 'astonished'

NFL.com - [Full Article]

So far, the signs are good for Redskins QB Robert Griffin III.

His long speed is back, he's cutting again and Griffin even walks without any sign of a limp when the brace is removed from his surgically repaired knee.

A source acknowledged that whatever test the team's medical staff puts before Griffin, "he completely smashes it." According to the source, the Redskins are "astonished" by his progress.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story does point out that the Redskins have yet to set a time or date to clear RGIII, according to the same source. We rank RGIII 8th on our QB list with an ADP of the 7th round. The injury should perhaps stay in the back of your mind, but it seems like all systems go if you were targeting Griffin for your fantasy team. You could do far worse waiting that far into a draft to pick your QB, but it looks like Matt Stafford, Andrew Luck and Tony Romo could also be options in that same round.
