The 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the year has been getting reacclimated with football activities throughout the first several days of training camp in Richmond.

Griffin likely won't play in any of his team's preseason games, which begin Thursday when the Redskins take on the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.

"I feel good now, I felt good a couple of weeks ago," Griffin said Monday. "I'm doing everything (the coaches) are asking me to do. I feel like I'm in rhythm out there."

After having both his ACL and LCL repaired after injuring both in the Redskins' playoff loss to Seattle in January, Griffin will wear a brace throughout the 2013 season.

Coach Mike Shanahan has limited Griffin to 7-on-7 drills during camp, keeping the quarterback away from 11-on-11 sessions.

Griffin says he can only accomplish so much in the 7-on-7s.

Says Griffin: "Coach will tell you something else, but I'm ready to move on."
