Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III could be on the verge of a sensational comeback after it was revealed that the starting QB is now fully participating in practice.

The news came to us via the ever reliable source that is NFL insider Adam Schefter, with the ESPN reporter stating that Washington are still undecided about whether or not RG3 should return to action for the Redskins on Sunday at the Minnesota Vikings.

"RGIII a full participant in today's practice; Redskins not ready to announce who starts at QB Sunday," Schefter revealed via Twitter on Wednesday.

McCoy provides Washington resurgence 

Despite missing RG3 for several weeks this season due to a dislocated ankle, Washington have managed to come back from the brink of failure and win two games on the bounce. Those two wins are partly due to the impressive play of original third-string quarterback Colt McCoy.

It seems that out of nowhere, McCoy is again staking a claim that he should be starting in the NFL. The former college football star from Alabama led Washington to a tight win over Tennessee, before some late game heroics saw the Redskins prevail 20-17 in overtime against Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

Will RG3 return to his starting role immediately?

Logic would say that when your starting quarterback returns to action, you give him back his role in the team. But this is not an ordinary QB situation.

First it was Kirk Cousins who displayed his talents for all to see in an impressive week two performance in the Redskins' 41-10 defeat of Jacksonville Jaguars. But that was the Jaguars, and poor performances by Cousins eventually cost him the interim job.

It was clear the Redskins had to change it up again before RG3 returned, but what wasn't obvious was that McCoy would actually start somewhat of a revive for Washington's season.

Washington were on life support at 1-5, now they are alive again at 3-5. It will be interesting to see how the Redskins play things gameday on Sunday, because it's clear they don't desperately need RG3 back just yet.
