Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said that he practiced fully on Wednesday and expects to play Sunday.

Griffin said he was able to practice full speed. He said he didn’t feel any weakness or limitation in his knee.

“Today was really encouraging for me, the doctors. It felt really good,” Griffin said.

Asked whether there were benefits to not playing last week, Griffin said: “I’m ready to play whenever they say I’m ready to play.”

He said he was frustrated that he couldn’t play last week but that he was determined to support his teammates.

Backup Kirk Cousins said that although it is less likely he will play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, he is preparing as if he will start.
