Should RGIII play in the preseason?

We learned yesterday that Robert Griffin III has been cleared to participate in Redskins training camp, and is scheduled to take part in some drills, like 7 on 7s, and miss others, like 11 on 11.

Today, ESPN floated the idea that it would be “a major surprise if he played in a preseason game.”

Would you play him? Do you think it’s necessary to play some to be ready to go Week 1? Is it wiser to avoid all risk and sit him all four games? Or is it something you can’t put a rule on and paint with a broad brush, that you must play day by day?
