RICHMOND, Va. -- Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says it will take two to three weeks to get Robert Griffin III into full football shape and that it "doesn't make sense" to play the quarterback in any preseason games.

Griffin sat out 11-on-11 drills Thursday during the first day of training camp. He did take part in the rest of practice, wearing a black brace on his right knee.

Shanahan says preseason games are "overrated" as far as the type of work Griffin would get. The coach says it's more important to see Griffin practice at full speed.

Griffin is recovering from reconstructive surgery on his right knee. Doctors cleared him to practice last week, but Shanahan says there's a difference between being cleared by a doctor and being cleared by a coach.
