Robert Griffin Jr. told The Washington Post that his son, Washington Redskins injured quarterback Robert Griffin III, plans to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Griffin Jr. sent the Post text messages saying Griffin III is doing "really good", and "that is the plan", when asked if Griffin III will play Sunday.
Redskins left tackle Trent Williams told the Post he spoke with Griffin III on Monday:
“He’s doing good,” Williams said. “He’s in high spirits. It was a pretty nasty, awkward hit, and for him not to be seriously injured is a blessing.”
Redskins coach Mike Shanhan said Monday afternoon that Griffin has a "mild" Grade 1 sprain of the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.
“We’re going to do what we think is in Robert’s best interests,” Shanahan said during a news conference at Redskins Park. “And usually when you do that, it’s the team’s best interests as well. We’re not going to put him out there if we think he’s not completely healthy and he can’t do the things that help us win.”
