Robert Griffin III practiced with the team today, and looked good in the portion of the practice the media was permitted to observe. He said that his knee, which suffered a Grade I lateral collateral ligament strain in the game against Baltimore on Sunday, felt “really good” , but that he did not want to give the Cleveland Browns coaching staff a competitive advantage by revealing whether or not he would play.
With three games remaining, the Redskins are firmly in the playoff chase. Of course, there are a ton of variables involved with the who-makes-the-playoffs equation, but if the Redskins manage wins against the Browns on Sunday and Philadelphia the following week, their playoff fates could ultimately come down to Redskins-Cowboys the final week of the season.
That game is currently scheduled for 1PM, but if the NFC East playoffs are still at stake at that point, then the game is a strong candidate to be flexed into the prime time Sunday night spot. Redskins-Cowboys on Sunday night for all the marbles? It doesn’t get any better than that, and there is a strong possibility it could happen.
