Found December 15, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network (via Dan Hanzus of NFL.com), the decision on whether Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will play in tomorrow’s game against the Browns will come down their team doctor believes is the best. According to Breer, Washington is willing to start Griffin at less than 100 percent in Cleveland, and it’s a near certainty he would be less than 100 percent healthy if he played. What the coaches aren’t going to do, per the source, is play him if there’s risk of further injury to his lateral collateral ligament. Griffin is questionable to play Sunday against the Browns as he recovers from a sprained LCL in his right knee. He practiced this week, but was limited to individual drills. Rookie backup Kirk Cousins took all first-team reps. Redskins coaches are confident they can retrofit the offense to fit Cousins’ skill-set, according to Breer, reverting to the type of offense that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan ran with the Houston Texans and in his first two years in Washington. It’s great that the Redskins’ coaches are confident in the offense Kirk Cousins would run if he does play, the fact of the matter is that they’ve ran the read-option for 13 weeks.  I can’t imagine that there won’t be any rust with a conventional NFL offense.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
