After a dizzying week of chatter surrounding Robert Griffin III's surgically repaired knee, the young quarterback made it clear he plans to remain patient in his rehab. In fact, he showed his emotions on his shirt.

Coming out to pregame warm-ups prior to the Redskins Monday night tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Griffin wore an "Operation Patience" t-shirt. Operation Patience is the term RG3 coined to temper his emotions and expectations as he works his way back from reconstructive knee surgery in January.

Griffin's t-shirt was not the only news that emerged from pregame warm-ups.

The man who performed RG3's knee surgery, and made plenty of headlines since, Dr. James Andrews appeared on the field talking with Skins general manager Bruce Allen. Andrews later spoke with RG3 and the two walked off the field towards the locker room together.

While there was no contact, Griffin looked sharp and precise making throws during warm-ups. RG3 took reps along with Kirk Cousins, Pat White and Rex Grossman throwing various routes to the Redskins receiving group.
