Redskins backup quarterback Robert Griffin III has been cleared to play for the 2015 season.
Allen didn’t say whether Griffin would be the second- or third-string signal caller.
“Coach Gruden did say that Kirk Cousins is our starter for this year, and that’s what we’re going to do,” Allen said. “Robert has been cleared to play from the concussion. We got the documentation last night.”
Washington begins its 2015 campaign Sunday at 1 p.m. ET at home against Miami.
