Dr. Andrews will evaluate RGII's knee when the Skins travel to Florida to face the Bucs on Thursday and will decide whether or not he's medically cleared to play Monday night vs Philly.

"Even if Andrews gives the thumbs-up, the final decision on whether Griffin plays in the Sept. 9 opener rests with the coach. Shanahan has said that even if Griffin is medically ready, the coach could see something in practice that might give him pause."

Side note: my favorite quote from the article was actually Mike Shannahan on his qb for Thursday's game. "Pat White will play the entire game, unless he goes down. If he goes down, Rex will go in. If he goes down, I'm going in," Shanahan said with a laugh. :wink:

The word "setback" comes to mind. Where have I heard that word?

:hmm:

BTW - That was a great show on ESPN about Griff's will to win.

Hail yeah it was! It's so inspiring to see someone with so much drive and passion to be the best at their craft. I'm proud that man is our QB.

I'm so pumped to get this season started! :twisted:
