Robert Griffin III to Start Sunday Against Eagles “If There's No Setback”

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has not been officially cleared to return to action, but should start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles "if there's no setback," according to head coach Mike Shanahan.

Griffin practiced fully this week after being sidelined with a sprained right knee last Sunday. In his place, Kirk Cousins led Washington to a 38-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns, its fifth consecutive win.

Shanahan, however, admitted that Griffin is not "100 percent," but that shouldn't stop him from playing against the Eagles.

“I like what I see,” Shanahan told reporters. “As I said before, if there is no setback, he should be ready to go, but I can’t make that decision yet because you don’t know if there are going to be any repercussions over the next few days.”
