Robert Griffin III on track to start
Morris Off to Running Start
Robert Griffin III isn't the only explosive offensive rookie for the Redskins. If first-year running back Alfred Morris hits the century mark this week, he'll become only the second Redskins rookie with 100 or more rushing yards in three straight games since the AFL/NFL merger. The first was Roy Helu, who did it in Weeks 12-14 last season.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin -- who suffered a concussion last Sunday during a 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons -- looked "good" in practice Thursday.
Shanahan says "there didn't look like there was any setback."
Griffin was a limited participant in the Redskins' practice Thursday, and Shanahan says the No. 2 overall pick missed only a couple plays during the session. Griffin went through the NFL's concussion protocol and was cleared to return to Wednesday's practice. His participation Wednesday was also limited.
Quarterbacks typically don't take contact during practices, so Shanahan indicated Griffin wouldn't be tested to be cleared for contact until closer to Sunday.
