Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III looks good to go. The Skins' star had a full practice yesterday for the second straight day as the team prepares for this week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I like what I see," says Coach Mike Shanahan. "If there is no setback, he should be ready to go."

Griffin missed last Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns with a sprained right knee. Coaches and doctors were eager to see how the knee would respond after going through a full practice on Wednesday, but Griffin again looked smooth on the field as stretched and went through drills.
