Snyder: RG3 clearance will come from Dr. Andrews

Last week, we were told that the decision on when Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will play will be made by coach Mike Shanahan, with input from Dr. James Andrews.   As owner Daniel Snyder tells it, Dr. Andrews will have even greater influence than that.

Per Lisa Salters of ESPN, Snyder said the decision will be made by Dr. Andrews.

It could be a distinction without a difference.  Obviously, if Shanahan isn’t comfortable playing Griffin it won’t matter if Andrews provides the green light.  But Snyder’s comment implies that, from Shanahan’s perspective, clearance from Andrews will be the controlling factor in the decision-making process.

Meanwhile, Griffin seems to be ready to play.  He told Salters he can do everything that he did last year.

In three weeks, we’ve got a feeling that Griffin will get a chance to prove it.

    Next year James will be given a jersey to match his hat by the Redskins, for being a faithful sideline supporter.

    The Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin the 3rd will be fine. We will win the division, conference championship and Superbowl. The only question is how dominant the Burgundy and Gold will ravage this little league that can’t keep up. Thank God I’m a Redskin fan. #GodsTeam

    Daniel Snyder is far and away the best owner in all of sports. Backed by Bruce Allen, Mike Shanahan under the leadership of Robert Griffin the 3rd on the field, it’s no wonder why the Redskins generate the most reaction of any team in football and in sports. We are the most loved and hated team because we do things the CORRECT and RIGHT way and we can’t be stopped. #BurgundyandGoldStandard

    Can Shanahan say he’s not ready and stick with Cousins for a couple weeks or does Andrews make that call too?

    Love watching this guy play. Hopefully, this is not a conversation we have every year about him being injured.

    The Redskins haven’t win a Super Bowl since 1991 :). RG Knee will be broken in 2013. The redskins haven’t had back to back winning seasons since 1991-1992. Hail that!!!

    Andrews is upset because a big guy with dreads took his nice skull cap at the football game and gave him a ridiculous looking toque in exchange.

    Big Colts fan, but I can’t help but marvel at RG3 the person….the QB….the professional. Wish my Colts could turn back the clock so the Redskins would be stuck with Luck! Sigh….

    FraudIII will be exposed this year
    Russell Wilson is the best QB to come out of last years draft and will have the most suceessful career by far.

    Wilson 1
    FraudIII 0

    where’s waldo?

    This is the correct decision. Andrews is very most likely more qualified than any doctor on the Redskins staff; Andrews is the man that reconstructed Griffin’s knee. Not to mention, he seems to be at every recent Redskins game in person, to my memory. Given all these facts, he should also be the final one to sign-off, outside of Griffin himself.

    @stunzeed5 think about that over the course of the next two seasons, then revisit your opinion. you may be thinking exactly the opposite

    Wow. The picture says it all. Anyone suspect a conflict of interest here with the Redskin doctor?

  21. nananatman says: Aug 20, 2013 8:09 AM

    So is he gonna stand right next to him until he hears a chime go off or something?

    Dr. Andrews: ” Sweet it sounds like you’re good to go, I can finally see my family again.”

    Anyone else ALREADY having RG3 overload? He was on camera all night, wearing that stupid bucket hat, and honestly, enough face time to last a year.
