LANDOVER, Md. - Call it another case of "East Coast Bias," but a lot of people not living in the Pacific Northwest might not know just how good a rookie season Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has had. Everyone has heard of Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft who moved Peyton Manning out of town. And everyone knows Washington rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner for whom the Redskins ransomed the farm to move up to No. 2 overall.

After missing one game with a knee injury, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was able to practice Wednesday but still has not been cleared to play, the team said. The practice was an encouraging sign that Griffin will start for the Redskins when they visit the Eagles on Sunday. "Hopefully, there's no setbacks and he keeps on improving and doctors OK him," coach Mike Shanahan said in a conference call with reporters. Shanahan said doctors still must clear Griffin.

Robert Griffin III underwent reconstructive knee surgery Wednesday and faces a challenging rehab if he is to return for the start of next season. The Washington Redskins quarterback had his lateral collateral ligament repaired and his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee reconstructed for a second time. The surgery was performed in Florida by orthopedist James Andrews, who was optimistic that Griffin would be back on the field this fall. "We expect a full recovery, and it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season," Andrews said in a statement released by the Redskins.

It doesn't sound good for Robert Griffin III. An injury that may sideline RGIII well into next season is a very real possibility - or at least it seemed that way Monday after coach Mike Shanahan described the results of tests on the rookie's right knee. Shanahan said the results are prompting the team to send Griffin to Florida to see renowned orthopedist James Andrews for more examinations that will decide the team's fate for the 2013 season. "There is a concern," Shanahan said.

Robert Griffin III tried to sidestep the question in the same way he evades defensive linemen. The Redskins quarterback engineered Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, basically playing on one leg. After a 38-21 loss to the Cleveland Browns last week with a knee injury, a mild sprain to his right lateral collateral ligament, Griffin completed 16 of 24 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He had a 102.4 passer rating. But Griffin did not run much, with just two carries for 4 yards.

LANDOVER, Md. - The right leg of Robert Griffin III buckled into the ground Sunday, unable to pivot with the rest of his body. The star rookie who led the Washington Redskins to their first NFC East title since 1999 already had issues with his knee, but this injury appeared more serious. It forced Griffin to leave the game in the fourth quarter, and the Redskins' hopes disintegrated. The Seattle Seahawks came away with a 24-14 win in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs. "I'm the quarterback of this team - my job is to be out there if I can play," Griffin said.

Giants at Redskins 8:30 p.m., ESPN. Line: Giants by 3. The skinny: Daniel Snyder likes his team in the spotlight, but his largely unsuccessful 13 years as Redskins owner have been a Monday night wipeout. Washington has lost 10 straight home Monday night games, nine of them with Snyder as owner. Now, at last, the Redskins have a leader suited for the big show. If anyone can end what tight end Chris Cooley jokingly referred to as "the Monday night curse," it's rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The stakes could hardly be bigger for this season's Redskins (5-6)

Chip Kelly first watched Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III when he was a prospect on Oregon's radar during the spring of 2007. Griffin was also a world-class track athlete at the time, the beginning of his emergence as a promising dual-threat quarterback. That promise has been unfulfilled during the last two seasons, ever since Griffin collapsed to the ground in a January 2013 playoff game with a knee injury. Griffin rushed to return for the 2013 season opener - which happened to be Kelly's debut as Eagles coach - and he was neither the same passer nor rusher during a forgettable second season in Washington.

WASHINGTON Redskins coach Mike Shanahan indicated yesterday that he's going to be more cautious with franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III, to the point that he's going to make sure Griffin "never plays if he's not 100 percent. " Griffin, the league's offensive rookie of the year, is recovering from reconstructive surgery after reinjuring his right knee in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Shanahan has been criticized for not removing Griffin from the game earlier, especially when Griffin was limping noticeably after throwing a touchdown pass in the first quarter.

A DAY BEFORE Tuesday's start of free agency, two of the NFL's top wide receivers were traded. Baltimore sent Anquan Boldin to San Francisco, and Minnesota shipped Percy Harvin to Seattle. The 49ers acquired Boldin for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title, must pass a physical to complete the deal. Boldin, 32, had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. Meanwhile, Harvin, 24, will join the Seahawks for a package of draft picks that includes Seattle's first-round selection next month, No. 25 overall.

INDIANAPOLIS - Should the Eagles spend the fourth overall pick in the NFL draft to get Geno Smith? The West Virginia quarterback, who was reluctant to run out of the pocket as a college passer, put up some eye-popping numbers at the combine on Sunday. Smith ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds, and while too much can be made of sprinting in a straight line, his showing erased concerns that the top-rated quarterback does not have the quickness to run the read option. It also heated up speculation that the Eagles might go after him, especially with the likelihood that Chip Kelly's new offense will feature the read-option wrinkle that swept the league last season.

INDIANAPOLIS - One year after Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were the consensus top picks in the NFL draft, the 2013 quarterback class lacks star power. The expected top quarterbacks in the class are West Virginia's Geno Smith and Southern California's Matt Barkley. North Carolina State's Mike Glennon and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib also have drawn attention, as have Arkansas' Tyler Wilson, Tennessee's Tyler Bray, and Florida State's E.J. Manuel. At this point, there does not appear to be a Luck or Griffin.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would "absolutely" want his own child to play football. After President Obama recently said he'd "have to think long and hard" about allowing a son to take part in the sport, Goodell was asked the same question hours before Sunday's Super Bowl during an interview on CBS's Face the Nation . Like the president, Goodell has two daughters. The commissioner deflected the question about allowing a son to play football by noting the high incidence of concussions in girls' soccer.

IF ADRIAN PETERSON can do it, maybe Robert Griffin III can, too. Peterson set an incredible standard this season for NFL players returning from major knee surgery, nearly breaking the NFL single-season rushing record. Griffin need look nowhere else for an inspiration as the Washington Redskins quarterback begins the road back from an operation Wednesday on two ligaments in his right knee. "I think it gives motivation to everyone," said Russ Paine, a physical therapist in Houston who worked with Peterson as the Minnesota Vikings running back went through rehab.
