RG3 cleared to play (update)

[QUOTE]Ed Werder said on SportsCenter this morning (above) that he'd spoken with "a prominent orthopedic surgeon; not one on the Redskins' payroll" who said that Griffin's injury -- a sprained lateral collateral ligament -- was "typically a three-week injury at minimum." In talking to people with the Redskins, Ed says, he's told that Griffin's movement has improved and that the Redskins "have reason to hope" he can play Sunday against the Eagles in Philadelphia. But it appears as though this could drag on through this week, as it did last week, before we know anything for sure. [/QUOTE]

This is probably the same prominent orthopedic surgeon that said the same thing the day after the injury happened.

I'm 100% confident that we can beat the Eagles with Cousins. However, i'm not confident that RGIII can beat the cowboys in his first game after an injury and not playing for 21 days. He'll certainly have some "rust," atleast early on. It also may take the rest of the offense some time to get back in a rhythm with him. Basically, i think our chances of beating Dallas dramatically improve if RGIII plays sunday. That said, if he's not healthy, he's not healthy.

I lol'ed at this because just last week "expert" on ESPN said this was typically a "2-week injury minimum". Now its 3? Next week 4? I guess to build suspense its a whatever week injury.

Shanny says he wants the OUR doctors to clear it and perfers the knee is 100%.

I firmly believe he'll be out this week with a possible return for next week.

Well Shanahan has said it will be up to the team doctors, but if he can play he will because "that's what he's paid to do"

I think again it will come down to Saturday night.

My understanding for today's practice is that the team will prepare as if KC will start

In other news, Redskins announced they signed LB Vic So'oto to their active roster and G Pat Boyle to the practice squad

As much as we could use Gryphon for our run at the playoffs, taking care of his health long-term is a much more important priority. If he needs to sit, sit him.

That expert said "at least 3-4 weeks".

Each player is different. Some players come back rested and reinvigorated from a few weeks off during a long season of hits. It is not like he is sitting on a couch on full rest, eating and getting fat. He is rehabbing, working out and practicing.
The stability and strength of his already operated right knee is the true test. Lets not expose him to risk of a year long injury by rushing him back before the joint is fully recovered and back to full strength. Play him if he is ready.

For what its worth, according to Rich Campbell on ESPN980, team doctors cleared RGIII to play last week but Mike and Kyle chose to sit him because he didnt look like himself in practice.

OK, so we'll just beat the Eagles with Captain Kirk then.

IF this is true, the chances of RGIII not playing this week are pretty minimal . . .
