Griffin has been sidelined with a knee injury since the end of last season.

Robert Griffin III has been cleared to play, but the saga between quarterback and coach goes on as the beginning of the regular season nears.

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is making Griffin and everyone else wait until Monday before announcing who will start in the Week 1 opener.

Griffin was cleared this week by Dr. James Andrews, who performed Griffin's knee surgery in January. Griffin tweeted the news and said he was "cleared for takeoff.''

But Shanahan said Andrews also had "concerns'' that need to be addressed. Andrews contradicted this statement, telling The Washington Post this week that he has "no concerns.''

It all fits a pattern that's been in play since the start of training camp. Griffin makes a statement saying he's ready, then Shanahan says not-so-fast.

The first game of the regular season is on Monday, Sept. 9 against divisional rival Philadelphia Eagles.
