Redskins encouraged by improvement of Robert Griffin III’s knee
Coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin, who will likely be listed officially as probable, has grown more comfortable playing with a brace on his right knee after wearing it for another full week of practice. He also confirmed Griffin’s knee has only improved.

Robert Griffin III expects to have more freedom vs. Dallas
Griffin wore a bulky brace on his right knee and appeared to limp as he walked during the game, but said afterwards that he wasn’t limited physically, and maintained the same stance on Wednesday. But Griffin did say that he expects to be allowed to do more against Dallas after showing coaches that he is healthy.

Redskins say Griffin will be able to run the ball effectively if needed
The Redskins say they believe Griffin will be able to be productive running with the ball if needed Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
Knee brace or not, RG3 is going to rip Dallas a new one!

And what's crazy is he's still the fastest QB even with a brace. He was jogging the other night and running past people

Seattle will no doubt be the toughest defense Griff has seen so far. Even better than Pitt but we r at home and the Seahawks are 3-5 on the road.

He definitely didn't look like P Manning. He didn't have the 2nd gear we had seen earlier, but he still moved well enough to cause defenders to hesitate, and that is what makes the zone read plays effective. I also thought he scrambled pretty good, and Saturday he will be one week further removed.

It'll be tough no doubt, and a healthy Robert Griffin III improves our chances
I don't think he can be 100% until the brace comes off, and it's probably too soon for that.

Seattle will be the biggest challenge since the bye, because they're the first healthy and dominant defense we face. It's a fascinating match up as the two rosters are very close talent-wise, and both teams believe they can win.

I don't believe the Seahawks are the best playoff team from the NFC though.

He looked more mobile than he did against Philly that's for sure.

I think he's just being cautious more than anything, and that brace has gotta be annoying too.

When was the last time Manning ran for 60 yards in a game? lol

I also think that knee brace is limiting him.

I think the brace slows him down but yea, I think hes definitely being cautious. Some plays he looked pretty explosive.

On an unrelated note, wtf was up with the field? The it looked tore up before the game even started and looked like that slowed all runners a bit. Hopefully will be good to go by Sunday.

FedEx is a high use facility. It's surface is pretty bad. Lots of painted dirt. I've been on it with no one else around and got to see it up close. Plus it had just rained/snowed so it was pretty soft.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

I think it's the brace. Those braces really protect your knee, but when it comes to coming out of breaks and juking, it's pretty hard. Not only that, it is heavy, and as the game goes on, it really wears out your leg.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

I sometimes wear a brace for running and I can't stand it. It definitely restricts your movement enough to annoy you. I'm sure they have that thing on fairly tight too. You can see he kinda runs with a little hitch in his step, no doubt it's the brace doing that.

It's supposed to be a 3-4 week recovery time, perhaps this week he can go with a sleeve vs the brace? Or maybe he'll just continue with the brace, I mean if he can run for 60 yards with it how much of an issue is it really?
