Robert Griffin III's rehab started with a "cry festival." On Thursday, the road back included running some drills at an offseason practice. Wearing a helmet but no jersey and sporting a large brace on his reconstructed right knee, Griffin did some handoffs and throws with other teammates recovering from injuries. It's the latest step toward his goal of playing in the season opener in September.

"As soon as I woke up out of the surgery, I put the date of the first game in my phone," Griffin said. "It was the passcode of my phone for a month. … That's always been the goal, but I'm not going to risk my career to play in one game. Yeah, I'm definitely all-in on for Week 1, but I'm also all-in for my career as well."

Cowboys' Brent may lose bond

Prosecutors accused Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent of violating the terms of his release on bond by consuming alcohol and tampering with a device that detects the presence of alcohol in his body. Brent has been free on a $100,000 bond since being charged with intoxication manslaughter for the Dec. 8 crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car.
