In a surprise that probably everyone saw coming, ESPN is reporting Robert Griffin, III will be starting the opening game against Newport News native Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.

During training camp in Richmond, the quarterback said he was ready to go.

The doctor is traveling with the team to Tampa for the final preseason game tomorrow.
