Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was able to participate in practice at full speed on Wednesday and stated that he expects to play in Week 16, as long as the coaching staff and team doctors clear him to do so.
Head coach Mike Shanahan stated that Griffin will be evaluated throughout the week and as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks he will be the team's starting quarterback. Kirk Cousins stated that he is still preparing as if he has a chance to play this week, but admitted that he believes his chances are not as good as they were entering Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns.
In addition to Griffin, center Will Montgomery was able to participate in practice on Wednesday. Montgomery was diagnosed with a Grade 2 MCL sprain and while the injury is described as painful, it is considered a playable injury.
Offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus does not have concussion side effects and was able to participate in the team's walk through. According to Shanahan, he will need to make progress to play on Sunday.
Both Montgomery and Polumbus down played their injuries and one teammate stated that he believes both will be available to play.
Linebacker London Fletcher did not practice on Wednesday (ankle), while Rob Jackson did not practice because of the birth of his child.
Also listed on the Washington injury report were: Lorenzo Alexander (limited, shoulder), Stephen Bowen (limited, biceps), Pierre Garcon (full, foot), Ryan Kerrigan (full, ankle), and Trent Williams (full, thigh).
