Can Robert Griffin III come back healthy this Sunday to start against the Cleveland Browns? (Credit: AP Photo) While the Washington Redskins have yet to officially announce whether or not quarterback Robert Griffin III will be the starting quarterback this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Although wide receiver Pierre Garcon has hinted that the team may be starting rookie Kirk Cousins, Robert Griffin III’s father has a different viewpoint on the subject. Robert Griffin II, the quarterback’s father, told USA Today that his son expects to start. “He’s doing great. He definitely said he plans to start. I haven’t seen him (the last two days). But he told me (today) everything has gone well,” Griffin II said. “He’s doing rehabilitation as far as the impact pain working with that. Monday he said he felt really good. Today he felt better. Every day he’s getting better. Monday he had no problems and throughout the workout, he had no problems.” If the Redskins hope to make the playoffs, they may need Griffin III to start this Sunday. While the Browns are not the toughest team in the league, they have won three straight games. With Cousins being less than impressive in the eleven snaps he has taken this season, the Redskins need Griffin III to come back healthy.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Robert Griffin III’s father says his son will start this Sunday appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
