Center Will Montgomery, right tackle Tyler Polumbus and quarterback Robert Griffin III were all on the field in some capacity as the Redskins opened practice Wednesday morning.

Montgomery suffered a sprained MCL late in Sunday’s game at Cleveland, and Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan declined on Monday to discuss the extent of the injury, saying “We’ll talk about Will more on Wednesday.” Meanwhile, Polumbus suffered a concussion, and despite doing some individual work, didn’t appear to be fully cleared. Players who go through the concussion monitoring program aren’t usually fully cleared for contact until later in the week.

Griffin was held out of last Sunday’s game with a sprained LCL in his right knee. Griffin said said that he believed he could have play, and that he hoped to play this coming week at Philadelphia. Shanahan, however, said on Monday that Griffin’s clearance is up to team doctors.

It wasn’t clear how much of a workload any of those three players were able to handle, however. Only the first 20 minutes of practice are open to reporters.

Shanahan will provide status updates on them following practice.
