Make no mistake, though: Griffin will start when he's cleared.
Shanahan said Monday that RG3 will be the starter again once doctors say the rookie's sprained right knee has healed "100 percent."
"If the doctor gives his OK, he's going to play," Shanahan said, via The Associated Press.
Here are the other injury items to know from Monday:
- Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been cleared from his concussion and could play against the Redskins after missing four games, coach Andy Reid said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. Tight end Brent Celek (concussion) returned to practice Monday. It looks like he'll be back this week.
