'Very, very good chance' Robert Griffin III plays Sunday for Redskins vs. Eagles

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Or, as coach Mike Shanahan put it: "There is a very, very good chance he is going to play."

Griffin went through a full practice Friday for the third straight day after missing last week's win over the Cleveland Browns with a sprained right knee.

Fellow rookie Kirk Cousins filled in, making his first career start in a 38-21 victory.

Less certain for Sunday's game are defensive end Stephen Bowen and right tackle Tyler Polumbus. Bowen has a torn upper biceps, and Polumbus is recovering from a concussion. Both are listed as questionable.
