Robert Griffin III is officially listed as probable for the Washington Redskins game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Coach Mike Shanahan indicated on Friday that the star rookie quarterback would return to action after missing last Sunday's game with a sprained lateral collateral ligament.
“When I say ‘probable,’ there’s a very, very good chance he’s going to play,"Shanahan said Friday. “It doesn’t look like there’s any setbacks with him. But if something crazy happened, obviously, we would know before the game. But talking to him after practice, he’s fine.”
Shanahan said that Griffin took all of the first team reps on Friday, and that he's sure the team's doctors will clear him to play.
“If I put him as probable, it’s 98 percent, so that’s pretty good. I know I’m not a doctor,” Shanahan said with a chuckle, “but he took all the reps today.”
The Redskins other players listed as probable for Sunday are linebacker London Fletcher (sprained ankle), linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder) and center Will Montgomery (sprained MCL).
Listed as questionable are right tackle Tyler Polumbus (concussion) and defensive end Stephen Bowen (torn upper left biceps tendon).
