                  === RG3: Doctors cleared me to practice ===
 
 Ashburn,  VA (Sports Network) - Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin
 III said he has been cleared to practice.
 
 "Doctors  cleared me to  practice. Coach is going to ease me in. Thank you for
 your  support &  See you  in Richmond,"  Griffin said  on his  Twitter account
 Monday.
 
 Griffin underwent surgery in January to repair both the lateral collateral and
 anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee. He suffered the LCL injury in a
 Week  14  win over Baltimore  and missed one game,  then was hurt again during
 Washington's wild card playoff loss to Seattle.
 
 It  appears that Griffin  was right when he said last month that he absolutely
 expected to be a full-go on the first day of training camp.
 
 The Redskins open training camp later this week in Richmond.
 
 The  former  Heisman Trophy winner  and second overall  pick of the 2012 draft
 was  named the  NFL's top offensive rookie  last year when he led the Redskins
 to  the  NFC East  title. He  completed 65.6  percent of  his passes for 3,200
 yards  with 20  touchdowns  and  five interceptions  in  15  games while  also
 rushing for 815 yards and seven scores.
 
 Washington  opens the  regular  season  on Sept.  9  against the  Philadelphia
 Eagles.
