The reports from Washington Redskins practice today are guardedly optimistic. Robert Griffin III did take to the field for practice and had no difficulty walking up and down stairs and was able to plant and throw. Good signs for the Redskins and RGIII.
Still, no word on RGIII's status. When asked about his ability to play, RGIII stated that his teammates told him to not try and play if he can't. Apparently, instead of resting, he showed up at practice to show his teammates he is doing much better. He did say that he believes his chances of playing on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns has improved.
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan did say after practice that Griffin was limited, but added that he was impressed with what he did in practice and how he worked at practice. Shanahan added that no decision on Griffin's status for Sunday has been determined.
Other Injuries: Lt Trent Williams was limited at practice. LB London Fletcher did not practice. Fletcher is still hobbled by a sore ankle. Shanahan also added that although WR Pierre Garcon was receiving medical treatment, he was a full participant at practice.
