It has been widely assumed that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is fully recovered from off-season knee surgery, and healthy enough to start in Washington's season-opener against the Philadelphia Eagles next Monday night.
"I feel very good where Robert's at," expressed Shanahan. "He'll be our starter on Monday night, unless there's some crazy setback that we don't anticipate."
This news comes as no surprise, but with plenty of doubt that RGIII is, in fact, ready to go.
The doubt stems from comments made by Shanahan last week, following the Tampa Bay preseason game, that Dr. James Andrews expressed concerns over how Griffin should be used.
Dr. Andrews immediately denied expressing any concerns, but Shanahan didn't back away from his comments during Tuesday's press conference.
When asked if he could share what the concerns were about, Shanahan said calmly, "No I can't. If [Dr. Andrews] would like to share that, that's up to him."
"I talked to him, just like I told you, after the game. There was a couple of concerns, and that's why we sat down and talked about it as a group, making sure we're all on the same page. We're all on the same page and we're excited to get going."
It still doesn't sound like everyone's on the same page, but hopefully, for the fans sake, Griffin is fully recovered and 100 percent.
Otherwise, Washington D.C. will be seeing more Kirk Cousins than they want.
