Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III might be starting his first NFL game in nearly two years.

According to Jamison Hensley, the Baylor Heisman winner was the only healthy gunslinger on the roster during practice Thursday. If he does get the start on Sunday, it’ll be his first since the end of the 2016 season when he was with the Cleveland Browns. (RELATED: Here Are The Highlights Of Week 10 In The NFL)

I would obviously never wish for anybody to be hurt or sick. You obviously never want to see that at all. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t be hoping for RGIII to get on the field here.

The dude was a beast during his time at Baylor, was solid for the Redskins before getting hurt and then pretty much faded into oblivion before the Ravens revived his career.

I think it’s more than fair for football fans to want to see him back on the field slinging the rock. How much does he have left in the tank? There’s obviously only one way to find out.

There’s still a few more days before we’ll know for sure, but I’m hoping like hell he starts. That will be required viewing for NFL fans everywhere! I can’t wait to see what happens Sunday.
