RICHMOND, Va. (WUSA9) -- Doctors have given the green light for the Washington Redskins star QB to practice, according to Robert Griffin III's Twitter account.
RGIII Tweeted: "Doctors cleared me to practice. Coach is going to ease me in. Thank you for your support & See you in Richmond," at around 11:20 a.m. on Monday.
Griffin III limped off the field last January in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks, after injuring his knee late in the regular season against the Baltimore Ravens.
Dr. James Andrews, the Redskins' orthopedic surgeon, has been working with RGIII's injury since last winter.
There was controversy surrounding the injury, after RGIII played while visibly in pain. Redskins Head Coach, Mike Shanahan, came under fire after letting Griffin III play while he was injured, leading to the painful last play, where RGIII fumbled and tried to crawl to the loose ball.
Dr. Andrews, RGIII and Shanahan were clearly not on the same page about whether or not Griffin III should have been on the field during that play.
Redskins camp, in Richmond, Va., should prove to gain more media attention on the healing knee as RGIII rehabs back to playing.
