Quarterback Robert Griffin III is on track to start the Washington Redskins’ game Sunday against Philadelphia after fully participating in practice Wednesday with the first-string offense.
Griffin said he felt no weakness or instability in his mildly sprained right knee after taking live reps at full speed.
“I felt good,” Griffin said. “It was exciting to get back out there and practice with everybody. I’m ready to play whenever they want me to play.”
Doctors on Thursday will evaluate how Griffin’s lateral collateral ligament responded to Wednesday’s workload.
“Hopefully there’s no setback, no swelling with the knee,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “He’ll be evaluated through the week, and when the doctors tell me the [ligament] is ready to go, I’ll announce when he’s ready to go.
“They’ll look at it tomorrow, and hopefully they’ll tell us it is full go, but I’m not sure when they’re going to make that decision.”
Griffin moved fine during the brief period of practice open to media. He planted on his injured right leg and threw a variety of passes, as he did last week. He also practiced rolling out.
“Last week he was moving pretty good, too, but he did look good today,” Shanahan said.
Griffin’s arm was live in practice, as well, he and receiver Pierre Garcon said.
“He had some time off, so he got some energy and strength back into it to get some hard throws,” Garcon said.
Team doctors held Griffin out of last Sunday’s 38-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
