LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins appear intent on keeping Robert Griffin III on the sidelines until it counts.

It would be a “major surprise” if Griffin were to appear in any of Washington’s four preseason games, beginning Aug. 8, according to ESPN.

The quarterback tweeted Monday that he had been cleared by doctors and would be eased back into practice by the coaching staff.

Head coach Mike Shanahan reportedly put Griffin through an “extensive workout” after the medical green light was given.

Griffin’s offseason rehabilitation has progressed at a blistering pace since he underwent a procedure to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments suffered during the team’s playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January.

The Redskins open training camp Thursday in Richmond.

Griffin and Co. host the Philadelphia Eagles Sept. 9 in the regular season opener on Monday Night Football.
