There’s just one more hurdle for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to clear before he’s back in the lineup.
Coach Mike Shanahan likes the chances that the former college hurdling star makes it to the other side in one piece. Zac Boyer of the Free Lance-Star reports that Shanahan said Griffin “looked good” in practice and remains on track to play despite not yet having official medical clearance.
Shanahan expects that clearance to come on Friday night, which is why he listed Griffin as probable to play for the Redskins against the Eagles. Griffin, who took all the reps in Friday’s practice, sprained his LCL in the Week 14 victory over the Ravens and Kirk Cousins played in his place in last week’s win against the Browns.
Linebacker London Fletcher is also probable, which means he’s likely to remain tied with Buccaneers safety Ronde Barber for the longest consecutive games played streak among active players.
