Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says it is unlikely he will play in any preseason games this season.

The second-year QB is coming off reconstructive surgery on his right knee, and will wear a brace on his right leg.

Griffin says he'll participate in almost all the drills at the beginning on training camp.

"I'll do everything in practice except the team sessions," says Griffin.  "Coach wants to ease me in that way, so I'm not right from the get-go going from not practicing at all in OTA's to right into team, and having guys run at you, and you react."

RG3 says he and coach Mike Shanahan are in agreement on the best course of action during the preseason.

"I think we're on the same page, when we sat down and talked about what I was going to do in training camp, and the weeks to follow," says Griffin.  "It was a good moment for me, because all the hard work I had done had paid off, and had allowed me to get back out there and do what I do, and that's play football, and lead, and just have fun with the guys."

The Redskins open training camp Thursday in Richmond.
