What is RG3's status for Sunday?

From Comcast SportsNetASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Get ready for another week of RG3 guesswork.Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that he's still waiting for a thumbs-up from the doctors before declaring that Robert Griffin III can return to game action.The rookie quarterback sprained the lateral collateral ligament his right knee in last week's win over the Baltimore Ravens and missed Sunday's 38-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns."We're going to play Robert when he's 100 percent," Shanahan said. "When that ligament's fine, when the doctors feel there's no chance for injury that he can go out there and perform at that level in a game situation without injury, we're going to go with our starter."The sprain was mild, and Griffin made a case for staying in the lineup when he moved well in practice late last week. Shanahan waited until Saturday night to announce that backup Kirk Cousins would make the start and said he taking the doctors' advice. Griffin immediately made it known that he was unhappy with the decision.Fellow rookie Cousins performed well in his first NFL start, completing 26 of 37 passes for 329 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The win moved the Redskins (8-6) into a three-way tie for first in the NFC East ahead of this week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.Despite the solid effort, Shanahan ruled out giving Cousins another start just to give Griffin extra time to rest the knee."If the doctor gives his OK," Shanahan said, "he's going to play."

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
