Robert Griffin participates during Wednesday practice


The Washington Redskins are hopeful that quarterback Robert Griffin III will play Sunday. Griffin suffered an injury to his right knee during last weekends game  against the Baltimore Ravens.

Griffin was seen testing out his knee during individual drills on Wednesday morning. The Washington Times says that “Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to describe the extent of Griffin’s participation in practice when he meets with reporters later today. Griffin is scheduled to speak with reporters at approximately 1:45 p.m.”

While Griffins presence at practice should not be treated as a sure sign that he will play on Sunday, it does bode well. Griffin’s father has already stated that his son will play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

During the practice Griffin did some drop backs and short passes. Griffin also did some light running and did some shuffling of his feet.

Kirk Cousins who took over for Griffin and led the Redskins to the win against Baltimore is listed as the backup.
