Shanahan: No Setback For RG III

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told reporters on Thursday that quarterback Robert Griffin III has had "no setback" in his recovery from a LCL sprain in his knee that kept him sidelined last Sunday against Cleveland, per the Redskins' Twitter account. Griffin III was once again a full participant in practice, but Shanahan noted that doctors have yet to clear him for game action.

While it looks like that, barring a setback, Griffin III will play, starting offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus missed Thursday's practice with a concussion. Polumbus suffered the injury last Sunday, but was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Polumbus was the only Redskins player to not practice.

Starting linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and defensive end Stephen Bowen (biceps) along with special teams linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder) were limited.

In addition to Griffin III, wide receiver Pierre Garçon (foot), starting outside linebackers Rob Jackson (not injury related) and Ryan Kerrigan (ankle), center Will Montgomery (knee) and offensive tackle Trent Williams (thigh) were full participants.
