Robert Griffin III appears on track to return to the lineup Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles after practicing for a second consecutive day Thursday.
"If there is no setback, doctors feel like he will be ready to go. There wasn't a setback today so that was good sign," Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said.
The rookie quarterback missed last week's victory over the Cleveland Browns with a sprained knee.
"Obviously he is not 100 percent yet. I think everybody knows that," Shanahan said. "But like I said, if there is no setback then he should be able to go (Sunday)."
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he wasn't sure if RG3 would wear a knee brace Sunday.
While the offense doesn't change drastically when fellow rookie Kirk Cousins comes into the game, who is behind center does affect formations and protections.
"We like our pass game to look like our run game, so when you lose the zone read, you lose a few of the play passes off of the zone read," Kyle Shanahan said. "What the receivers are doing downfield is the same whether you're doing it off a zone action or whether you're doing it off a zone read action.
"It's just trying to make everything look the same. When they're trying to stop the run, you want to make it look the same and go to the pass. You base it off the run game, and with Robert not in there, you don't really put anything in for the quarterback runs. So, we just lost (against Cleveland)."
