RG3 knows he'll be playing through pain

Sunday will mark the return of Robert Griffin III to the football field.

Griffin, who dislocated his ankle in Week 2 against Jacksonville, has been cleared to play this Sunday against Minnesota. Speaking to the team's official website, Griffin said he's healthy enough to get out there without any worry of a setback.

"This isn't little league football," Griffin said. "You're going to play with some pain. I'm to the point where I've rehabbed it enough and I feel good going out there. I feel I can be myself."

Washington is 3-5, which isn't all too bad considering how it started the season. But the team got solid contributions the past two weeks from backup Colt McCoy, who led Washington to wins over Tennessee and Dallas.

Now with Griffin back, Washington will look to continue that leading streak.
