Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that quarterback Robert Griffin III didn’t appear to have any setbacks and went through practice without problems Thursday.

Griffin will be evaluated by team doctors before he is cleared to practice Friday. Griffin still hasn’t been cleared for Sunday’s game, Shanahan said.

The quarterback took 75-80 percent of the snaps in Thursday’s practice rather than his usual 85 percent.    

 “He’s been great in practice this week,” Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said of Griffin. Kyle Shanahan said he expects the quarterback to be able to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

“Sounds like he’s going to be alright,” he said.

Shanahan said his play calling won’t change Sunday. If Griffin can play, he won’t be limited, he said.

“If I went into a game thinking I had to call it a different way because he might get hurt, then he doesn’t need to be playing,” the coordinator said.

Cornerback Cedric Griffin (hamstring) was limited in practice and defensive end Doug Worthington (calf) did not practice.
