Robert Griffin III will be back on the field when the Washington Redskins open camp on July 25.
Griffin, who had surgery earlier this year to repair torn ligaments in his knee, wrote on Twitter today that he has been cleared to play by his doctors. Still, don’t expect Griffin to be taking any hits during training camp.
The Redskins are going to be cautious with the 2012 Offensive Rookie Of The Year and “ease” Griffin back into training camp.
Griffin III writes: “Doctors cleared me to practice. Coach is going to ease me in. Thank you for your support & See you in Richmond.”
Griffin suffered his injury during the Redskins’ final game of the season on January 6. It was unclear of the rookie phenom would recover in time for the start of the 2013 season but it looks like RGIII is well ahead of schedule.
The Redskins quarterback, who was recently married, threw for more than 3000 yards and 20 touchdowns during his first year in the NFL. He also added 815 rushing yards and was crowned the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
