Redskins’ Ryan Torain cleared to resume practice

Running back Ryan Torain was cleared by doctors to resume football related activities and will begin taking handoffs, according to a team official.

Torain has missed two weeks of action after breaking his left hand. The team still doesn't know when he will play his first preseason game, but he will be monitored in positional drills before a determination on his return date for full-contact activity.

"It's been hard to watch, but I'm excited to get back, and as soon as coach calls my name, I'll be ready," Torain said.

The fourth-year pro had his cast removed Tuesday morning and saw the specialist later in the day.
