Griffin wasn’t available for questioning on the matter, but the team is expecting him to start against the Philadelphia Eagles.
“That’s just the type of player Robert is, just his will and determination to be back on that field,” said teammate Alfred Morris. “I’m not surprised, and I’m looking forward to him coming out and having a good game.”
