    Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to receive clearance to resume running on the field within the next week, his father said.

    The details of Griffin’s rehabilitation had largely been kept under wraps aside from a few vague updates from Coach Mike Shanahan, orthopedic surgeon James Andrews and most recently, Griffin himself.

    Griffin was said to be “ahead of schedule,†by all three, and Andrews described the quarterback as “superhuman†in his recovery. But the extent of Griffin’s capabilities hadn’t been revealed.

    Robert Griffin Jr. on Monday, however, revealed exactly how far along his son was in his recovery.

    “He’s been running in the pool, and some on the treadmill,†he told The Post. “But they’re just about ready to take it out on the field.â€
