Sounds like the Washington Redskins could make a game-time decision when it comes to the availability of quarterback Robert Griffin III for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
He’s been limited in practice this week with his sprained knee suffered last Sunday in the overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
“He looked more comfortable,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said on Thursday.
The Redskins will either start Griffin or fellow rookie Kirk Cousins with a playoff bid on the line as they are chasing the New York Giants in the NFC East and multiple teams in the wild-card race.
The issue for Shanahan will be two-fold. Can Griffin play full speed? If not, is he a risk to further injury if he is not able to play full speed? Stay tuned.
