Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan did not indicate on Monday whether he expects quarterback Robert Griffin III to return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, the Washington Post reported. Shanahan told reporters only that Griffin would be evaluated on a daily basis. Shanahan did not say whether he expects Griffin to participate fully in Wednesday's practice. Griffin sat out Sunday's win at Cleveland because of a mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee. Shanahan said the medical staff will decide whether Griffin's knee is healed enough for him to play. "If the doctors give their OK, he's going to play," Shanahan said. If Griffin cannot play, Kirk Cousins will make his second straight start at quarterback.
