Robert Griffin III (knee) is active and starting Sunday's game against the Eagles, as expected.
Griffin will be wearing a custom-designed protective brace that is intended to help keep his sprained LCL stabilized. He won't be limited throwing the football, but his agility and lateral movement in the running game could be slightly compromised. Still, we'd never consider sitting RG3 against a Eagles' secondary sporting two under-performing corners and perhaps the league's worst safety duo. The last time he faced the Eagles, the rookie completed 14-of-15 passes for 200 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed 12 times for 84 yards. The Redskins' inactives: RT Tyler Polumbus (concussion), WR Brandon Banks, WR Dezmon Briscoe, LB Roderick Muckelroy, LB Vic So'oto, OL Adam Gettis and QB Rex Grossman.
