The Redskins still haven’t said whether quarterback Robert Griffin III will play on Sunday, but Griffin said after practicing today that he thinks he’s good to go.
Griffin said he was able to practice at full speed and saw no reason at all that he won’t be the starter on Sunday at Philadelphia after missing last week’s game against the Browns with a knee injury.
“I was able to go through a practice, so that was good and I felt good,” Griffin said. “I’m ready to play.”
Of course, Griffin thought he was ready to play last week, and the team overruled him. So it’s possible that he won’t be able to go no matter how ready he feels, and Griffin acknowledged that “it is frustrating” that the medical and coaching staffs might hold him out even though he wants to play.
Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins, who started last week, also met the media after today’s practice, and he said he isn’t sure whether he’s playing Sunday or not. If it’s up to Griffin, however, there’s no doubt: Cousins should be headed back to the bench.
