Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was a full participant in practice Friday, yet another good sign of his readiness to play in Sunday’s game vs. Minnesota.

However, receiver Pierre Garcon continues to have issues with his right foot that caused him to take less reps Friday than he had a day earlier. Garcon had been full-go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.  He’ll be listed as questionable on the injury report, as will corner Cedric Griffin (hamstring).

Nose tackle Barry Cofield (shoulder) and DeAngelo Hall (knee) both needed treatment, but will be listed as probable. Defensive end Doug Worthington (calf) is out.

Coach Mike Shanahan said of Garcon, “It’s lingering for sure. It was enough to where he didn’t take a lot of reps today… It’s painful, that’s why we sat him out. It’s tender and still sore. It’s a pain issue but it’s sore enough to where he can’t push off all the time.”

Shanahan also said they’ve given no thought to resting Robert Griffin, even if he’s cleared to play.

“That’s why we have doctors,” Shanahan said. “Doctors make those decisions, we don’t. If Robert feels fine and he’s had no side effects and he wants to play and feels good to play. If Robert said I have a little headache, of course you do that. But why would you not let someone play if he felt good right from the end of the game every day until now? If he has these test after practice and all of a sudden something’s wrong, obviously we’re not going to take a chance.”
