Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III announced on his Twitter page that doctors have cleared him to begin practicing with the team. Griffin III said head coach Mike Shanahan will "ease" him back into training camp when the Redskins open camp in Richmond, Va., on July 25.

Griffin III, the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year, had surgery on January 9 to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his right knee. Dr. James Andrews, the orthopedist who performed surgery on Griffin III's knee, said Griffin III's recovery has been nothing short of "unbelievable" and "superhuman."

In his rookie season, Griffin III threw for 3,200 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.
