The Redskins beat the Browns to stay in the playoff race last week with Kirk Cousins filling in for Robert Griffin III.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Robert Griffin III looks good to go.

The Washington Redskins rookie had a full practice Thursday for the second straight day as the team prepares for this week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

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

Griffin missed Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns with a sprained right knee. On Wednesday, he had his first full practice since the injury, and coaches and doctors were eager to see how the knee would respond.

"There wasn't a setback today, so that's a good sign," Shanahan said.

Also Thursday, right tackle Tyler Polumbus remained unable to practice as he recovers from a concussion. Linebacker London Fletcher (sprained left ankle), linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (right shoulder) and defensive end Stephen Bowen (torn biceps) were limited, and linebacker Rob Jackson returned to practice after the birth of his baby girl.
