Robert Griffin III’s knee was “fine” 24 hours after the quarterback returned to the lineup in Philadelphia, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday afternoon. 

“He’s fine, no problem with his knee,” Shanahan said.

The team suffered some “bumps and bruises” in Sunday’s 27-20 victory over the Eagles but none are serious enough to cause a player to miss next week’s game against the Cowboys, Shanahan said.

The most significant injury was safety DeJon Gomes, who suffered a sprained left knee when Niles Paul was tackled into his leg on a kickoff return early in the third quarter. Shanahan said the sprain is a Grade 2 and will be evaluated again on Wednesday.

Defensive lineman Kedric Golston suffered stinger in his left shoulder in te fourth quarter but he told Shanahan that he expects to practice Wednesday.

Tackle Tyler Polumbus, meantime, continues to recover from the concussion that sidelined him Sunday.

“Talking to our doctors, they thought he felt better,” Shanahan said. “Doctors won’t pass him until they see him here on Wednesday. So hopefully there’s improvement.”

If Polumbus is unable to face the Cowboys, the Redskins seem to have discovered an adequate backup in Maurice Hurt, whom Shanahan said graded out well after reviewing Sunday’s game.                        

“I thought he did an excellent job,” Shanahan said of Hurt, who made his first career start at tackle. “He did one heck of a job in both the running game and the passing game.”
