Robert Griffin III has been medically cleared to start for the Washington Redskins in Week 1.

Griffin is returning from major surgery to repair his knee.

Dr. James Andrews is less concerned about Griffin’s knee and “much more on how the team plans to use him,” according to a source.

Andrews had previously told the media that Mike Shanahan had Griffin reenter a game against the Baltimore Ravens following an injury without examining him.

“He didn’t even let us look at him,” Andrews said.  “He came off the field, walked through the sidelines, circled back through the players, and took off back to the field. It wasn’t our opinion.

“We didn’t even get to touch him or talk to him. Scared the hell out of me.”
