ASHBURN, VA (CBSDC) – The Washington Redskins should have Robert Griffin III back under center as they look for their sixth win in a row and to keep their division title hopes alive as they play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

“If there’s no setback, doctors feel he’ll be ready to go,”  Mike Shanahan said.

On Thursday, Griffin fully practiced for the second time in as many days as he hopes to make his return.

“He had a good practice, obviously he’s not 100 percent yet … if there is no setbacks and he should be ready to go,”  Shanahan said.

Shanahan also said that when Brandon Banks isn’t active on game days, Darrel Young is the third quarterback behind Griffin III and Kirk Cousins.

Starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus (concussion) didn’t practice today.

“We just rested him today, hopefully there’s no setback and he can go tomorrow and practice,”  Shanahan said.

Shanahan said it takes a couple days to be cleared to practice from having a concussion.

London Fletcher (ankle), Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder) & Stephen Bowen (bicep tendon) were limited in practice.

“I’m feeling good, doing what I can in practice, I’ll definitely be playing on Sunday,”  Stephen Bowen said.

Lorenzo Alexander said, “It’s better…I’m fine” about his shoulder and he too should be available on Sunday.

London Fletcher has played with his ankle injury for about a month and will play on Sunday.

Everyone else, including Will Montgomery (MCL) and Pierre Garçon (foot), fully practiced today for the Redskins.

The Redskins are 7-1 this season with Pierre Garçon in the line-up and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had some high praise for him.

“He’s as good as any receiver in this league. He’s a No. 1 receiver who can get open.”

Listen here to what Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan, Jim Haslett, Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Pierre Garçon & Lorenzo Alexander had to say following practice today.
