Robert Griffin III back? Almost. According to the Redskins quarterback, he was just cleared to begin practicing with his team again—just seven months after suffering a torn ACL and LCL in his right knee. He let the world know in a tweet that he sent out late this morning:
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
But just because RGIII has been cleared to practice, you shouldn't expect to see him sprinting all over the field during training camp this summer. He will reportedly stay away from taking part in team drills during camp and will focus mainly on practicing during 7-on-7 drills. His goal is still to return in time for Week 1 of the 2013-14 NFL season.
