We begin the sixth glorious NFL Sunday of the season with the most expected news possible.
All week, we hoped that Robert Griffin III would play. And all week he practiced, building up to being pretty much a full participant in Washington’s Friday session. Yet all week, we were still at least a little concerned due to the lingering, unpredictable nature of concussions, with symptoms sometimes returning as physical exertion is increased. Earlier this year before his season-ending knee injury we saw Darelle Revis claim that he was fine, but he was unable to fully practice by Friday, and he was therefore a Week 2 scratch.
But there will be no such catastrophe with Bob Griffin, as according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the news we all expected has become a reality and RG3 is starting today against the Vikings.
We’ll have the usual Sunday morning breakdown of all the other notable actives and inactives in a little less than an hour prior to the early kickoffs. But for now, roll back over in the other direction to grab that coffee and Baileys, knowing that the third highest point producer in fantasy is alright.
