There was a little bit of doubt on the status of Robert Griffin III, but the official announcement has been made and he will be starting the game on Monday Night Football. RGIII is back on the field. The comeback is complete.

The Washington Redskins face off against Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles to open up the season. It is a team with a new coach and a whole new system that will try to gel. Griffin can take advantage of a defense that is still working to catch their stride and use it as his first step in his comeback.

Monday Night Football, it all gets real and RGIII will be out on the field captaining the Redskins.
