Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(ASHBURN, Va.) — Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III participated in OTA’s on Thursday, as he continues to work his way back from right knee surgery.

“Still trying to make sure I stay focused on not just the rehab part but also paying attention, getting the mental reps and just knowing it like the back of my hand,” Griffin said.

Washington took Griffin with the second overall pick out of Baylor in last year’s NFL draft. In his first season with the Redskins, he tossed for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns while rushing for 815 yards and seven TD’s. He won the offensive rookie of the year award after leading Washington to a 10-6 record and their first NFC East title since 1999.

If Griffin is not 100 percent healthy when the 2013 season kicks off, the Redskins are expected to turn to backup quarterback Kirk Cousins to start.
