                === Redskins declare RG3 probable for Sunday ===
 
 Ashburn,  VA  (Sports Network) -  Though Robert  Griffin III is still awaiting
 medical  clearance to  participate in  the  Washington Redskins'  key game  at
 Philadelphia  this coming  Sunday, it  appears as  if the  team will  have its
 rookie quarterback ready to go.
 
 Griffin  was listed as probable for the Week 16 clash after practicing without
 restrictions for a third consecutive day on Friday.
 
 The  2012  No. 2 overall draft  pick was held out  of last week's 38-21 win at
 Cleveland  due to  a Grade I sprain  of the lateral collateral ligament of his
 right knee he sustained in the fourth quarter of Washington's overtime triumph
 over Baltimore on Dec. 9.
 
 "There  doesn't  look like there  are any setbacks  with him, but if something
 crazy  happens, obviously,  we will know before the game," Redskins head coach
 Mike  Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "But talking to him after practice --
 he's fine."
 
 Washington  enters Sunday's matchup riding a five-game winning streak that has
 vaulted  the club into a three-way tie with Dallas and the New York Giants for
 first  place in  the NFC East with  two games left to play. The Redskins would
 claim  their  first division title since  1999 with victories in each of their
 two  remaining  contests, which includes  a home date  with the Cowboys in the
 finale.
 
 The  Redskins do  have a  pair  of starters  -- right  offensive tackle  Tyler
 Polumbus  (concussion) and  defensive end Stephen Bowen (biceps) -- considered
 questionable to suit up against the Eagles.
