WASHINGTON (WUSA) --Everyone is breathing a sigh of relief this morning. RGIII's knee surgery was a success. He's expected back within 6 months to 8 months.

Edward Lee was a wide receiver and kick return specialist in the 1980's for the Detroit Lions before he suffered a career-ending knee injury. Lee had ACL reconstruction and went through rehabilitation. The experience led him to become a physical therapist to help others.

Lee, the Founder and President of Physical Therapy and Sports Assessment, joined us on Thursday morning to talk about the road to recovery.
