Robert Griffin III is expected to start for the Washington Redskins Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, barring any setbacks, reports NFL.com.
Griffin, who has an lateral collateral ligament sprain, fully participated in Wednesday's practice. He will be evaluated Thursday and throughout the rest of the week, but the Redskins are confident he'll be ready to go Sunday.
"I was able to go through a full practice, so that was good," Griffin said. "I feel good. It was exciting to get back out there and practice with everybody -- get ready for the game."
Griffin told the media after practice that he has improved each day, and believed he could have played last Sunday.
"It is frustrating," Griffin said. "Like I said, players play. I told them in the locker room when they told me that night, I would be upset. But once we step on the field, I was all for this team and all for Kirk. That's the way you have to approach it. You don't take those things to the field and try to become a cancer or a distraction to the team."
Coach Mike Shanahan wouldn't acknowledge who would officially start Sunday, but he said he's confident with either Griffin or Kirk Cousins running the offense.
"That's our system," Shanahan told NFL.com. "We have the ability to go a number of different ways. You just got to put together a game plan that best fits each guy."
RG3 was fined $10,000 by the NFL as shown in the picture above for wearing an Adidas sweatsuit and t-shirt during a postgame news conference.
