Robert Griffin III has taken part in his first full practice since spraining his right knee.
The Washington Redskins quarterback said he did all of his usual work Wednesday as the team held its first workout ahead of this week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Coach Mike Shanahan said doctors will examine Griffin's knee on Thursday to see if there's any swelling. He could then be cleared to play against the Eagles.
Griffin was limited in practice last week and was held out of Sunday's 38-21 win over the Cleveland Browns. He wanted to play, but Shanahan said doctors did not give their OK.
Washington has won five in a row to move into a three-way tie atop the NFC East.
