Six months removed from major reconstructive knee surgery, Robert Griffin III has been cleared by doctors to participate in practice, just three days before the Redskins are set to begin training camp.
Doctors cleared me to practice. Coach is going to ease me in. Thank you for your support & See you in Richmond — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) July 22, 2013
"RGKnee" has been looming over Washington ever since the All-Pro quarterback injured his right knee during the Redskins' 24-14 loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Round in early January. Griffin underwent surgery shortly after, where doctors completed a "direct repair of his LCL and a re-do of his previous ACL reconstruction."
Griffin declared that he would be "all in for Week 1" back in May and it looks like that could be the case; Washington opens the season at home on Monday Night Football against the Eagles Sept. 9.
