Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III is shooting for a return on Monday night football in the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

RG3 is aware that part of being fully prepared to play on opening night is probably having to sit out all or most of the preseason.

Griffin III told the Washington Post that he’s comfortable playing in the opener without having played in the preseason.

“I’ve thought about that and yeah, I would be comfortable with that,” Griffin said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “That’s all I can say. I have no control over whether I play in the preseason or not. I would be comfortable running out of the tunnel at FedEx Field with the smoke and everything.”

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin at least would have to practice before playing in a game.

“You’d have to practice … not necessarily against an opponent. … He’d have to work with the first-team offense and he’d have to have some practice time,” Shanahan said Thursday.
