Redskins’ Griffin probable vs. Cowboys


Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, dealing with soreness in his throwing shoulder, is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Griffin’s right shoulder responded well to a day of rest and he was a full participant in practice Friday. The Redskins did not practice Thursday.

Coach Jay Gruden had planned to remove Griffin in Friday’s practice if he felt any soreness. Gruden said Griffin will be re-evaluated Saturday morning.

“The big thing is we wanted to make sure he didn’t have a lot of pain when he threw and he didn’t,” Gruden said. “He looked good, made all the throws. We feel very confident he will be OK.”

Defensive end Jason Hatcher, who has missed practice all week, is listed as doubtful. He has missed the last two games with a knee injury.
