Yesterday we reported the good news: Robert Griffin III participated in a full practice yesterday and is on pace to start against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Also in that report was good news on C Will Montgomery, who practiced fully despite a grade 2 sprain of an MCL. Have to expect him to start on Sunday, which is big, since Montgomery has been playing at an All Pro level this year. RT Tyler Polumbus did not practice and still has to satisfy all the concussion protocols before he can practice or play, but head coach Mike Shanahan said he is showing no signs of the concussion and he, too, is very likely to start and play on Sunday.
Lorenzo Alexander [shoulder] and Stephen Bowen [torn upper triceps] were limited in practice yesterday, but will probably play on Sunday.
Speaking of the Eagles game, here is our preview of that Sunday matchup.
Brian McNally takes a look at the Eagles, noting their defense is bad, their coverage teams are worse, rookie QB Nick Foles is up and down and TB LeSean McCoy will play for the first time since suffering a concussion in the last Redskins-Eagles matchup.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doubts the Redskins-Cowboys game in week 17 will be flexed to 8.20 on Sunday night. That's fine with me, though I can't imagine which game would be more momentous or attractive to a national audience.
Rick Snider is impressed with the Redskins' quarterback situation.
Jason Reid writes the Redskins should not trade Kirk Cousins -- ever. I think Reid is wrong about that. I believe Mike Shanahan will eventually deal Cousins, but not until he's gotten a few good, inexpensive seasons of peace of mind from his other rookie quarterback.
RG3 fined $10K for postgame attire.
Kirk Cousins has a bad haircut.
If you care what LaDainian Tomlinson thinks, he believes Seattle QB Russell Wilson should be Rookie of the Year.
If you still care what Rob Parker thinks, read his "apology" to RG3.
