"Robert has been cleared to play from the concussion, we got the documentation last night," Allen said.
Griffin suffered a concussion during a preseason game on Aug. 20. After the Redskins initially announced the quarterback had been cleared the following week, an independent neurologist determined he was not ready to return.
"There won't be another shoe drop," Allen said when asked about the starting job. "Coach (Jay) Gruden did say that Kirk Cousins is our starter for this year and that's what we're gonna do."
Whether or not Gruden decides to make RGIII active and where on the depth chart he lands -- No. 2 or No. 3 -- remains to be seen.
Now that the concussion issue is being put in the rear-view mirror, how RGIII responds when he gets his next on-field opportunity will be key -- whether that chance comes in Washington or another location.
