We expected it to happen and on Monday, we found out that it will happen. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Monday that quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Monday versus the Eagles.
"If we didn't feel Robert was full-go and ready to play and do all the things you ask a guy to do, he would not be playing in this game," Shanahan said. "If that's sprinting out, if it's running the option, if it's drop back, he can do all those things because he proved it to us in practice."
It has been 236 days since Griffin underwent surgery to repair the torn ACL and LCL in his right knee.
There is a sliver of trepidation because we don't know how he will look in live action, but Griffin has passed every test he has faced to this point with flying colors. If you have already drafted, Griffin probably came to you at a bargain price. If you have yet to draft, Griffin is at least a top-10 quarterback.
