RG3 could be cleared Friday by Washington Redskins


Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said earlier this week that Robert Griffin III would not return to game action until he was "100 percent."

It's unclear if Griffin has reached that threshold, but the rookie quarterback has been listed as probable for Week 16's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to The Free Lance-Star, Shanahan said Griffin "looked good" in practice Friday, but has not been cleared by doctors. Shanahan said Griffin likely will be cleared by Friday night.

Griffin -- a front-runner for Offensive Rookie Of The Year honors -- sat out Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns with a sprained lateral collateral ligament in his right knee. Kirk Cousins likely will return to his backup role against the Eagles.
