Robert Griffin III’s status for Eagles game remains up in the air

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, there’s a chance Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III could be ready to play in this week’s game against the Eagles, but nothing is certain at this point.

After speaking with an orthopedic surgeon that told him Griffin has a three-week injury, Werder isn’t sure the Redskins will allow him to play.  With head coach Mike Shanahan relying on the doctors to decide whether Griffin can play, his status remains up in the air at this point.

Another concern that the Redskins might have about letting Griffin play this week is that center Will Montgomery and right tackle Tyler Polumbus are both banged up after this past week’s game.  If both aren’t in the line up, it will affect what kind of protection Griffin will receive in the pocket.
