Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says his rookie quarterback will be ready to return on Sunday against the Eagles, reports The Washington Post.

"If there’s no setbacks, he should be ready to go," Shanahan said.

Griffin suffered a mild right knee sprain and did not play Sunday against Cleveland. He practiced on Wednesday and Thursday, and doctors said the knee had healed enough to play against Philadelphia.

Rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins started in Griffin's place and threw for 329 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Redskins' 38-21 victory over the Browns.

The Redskins (8-6) currently hold a narrow lead over the Cowboys and Giants (both 8-6) in the NFC East due to Washington's 2-1 record over the two clubs this season.
