Griffin, among others, back on the field for the Redskins

The Redskins hit the field again today to prepare for their tilt with the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.  The burning question remains, will Griffin play?  According to ESPN:

Robert Griffin III is back on the practice field for the Washington Redskins, hoping the team will let him play this week as he recovers from a sprained right knee.

Griffin looked smooth Wednesday as he went through drills during the 20 minutes that the practice was open to reporters.

At this point, there has been no announcement regarding Griffin playing Sunday and if Kirk Cousins would be playing in his stead.   As a reminder, Mike Shanahan had said last week that he would only play Griffin if he was clear to play by his doctors.

Besides Griffin, offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus and center Will Montgomery also left the game early vs. the Browns after receiving a concussion and injuring their MCL respectively.   They too were back on the field.

Center Will Montgomery, right tackle Tyler Polumbus and quarterback Robert Griffin III were all on the field in some capacity as the Redskins opened practice Wednesday morning.

Montgomery suffered a sprained MCL late in Sunday’s game at Cleveland, and Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan declined on Monday to discuss the extent of the injury, saying “We’ll talk about Will more on Wednesday.” Meanwhile, Polumbus suffered a concussion, and despite doing some individual work, didn’t appear to be fully cleared. Players who go through the concussion monitoring program aren’t usually fully cleared for contact until later in the week.
