All eyes are on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and when he will be making his next start after injuring his LCL two Sundays ago in a victory over the Baltimore Ravens.  He rested during a win over the Cleveland Browns, while Kirk Cousins made the start in relief en route to the Redskins 5th straight win.  With the potential of a playoff berth and NFC East Title on the line, Griffin looks like he is getting closer to returning under center.

According to Mike Florio:

Coach Mike Shanahan explained after practice that the doctors may indeed sign off on Griffin playing, as soon as Thursday.

“What the doctors will do is evaluate him tomorrow,” Shanahan told reporters.  “Hopefully there is no setback, no swelling with the knee.  He will be evaluated through the week.  When the doctors tell me the ligament is ready to go, I will announce when he is ready to go. . . . I think they will be able to look at him tomorrow and watch him practice tomorrow. Hopefully there is no swelling but you just don’t know.  So, they will look at it tomorrow and hopefully they will tell us it is full-go.”
