Found December 12, 2012 on Fox Sports Ohio:
BEREA Pat Shurmur downplayed the fact that Robert Griffin III might not play this week and said the Browns will prepare the same way regardless of who the quarterback is. There has been uncertainty whether Griffin III will play or not this week after suffering a grade one strained lateral cruciate ligament (LCL). Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon said on ESPN that Kirk Cousins would likely start. However, Griffins father said in an interview that his son expected to play this week. Im sure were going to hear a lot of different things this week, Shurmur said. We have to prepare for the Redskins. We cant get caught up in preparing for just one player. Griffin was participating in practice during the portion that was open to the media, but it was unclear if he took part in team drills. Shurmur was asked if he would use Josh Cribbs to simulate Griffin III in practice to try and duplicate Griffin IIIs speed. Im not sure we have anyone to simulate his speed, Shurmur said. He said no t...

Is Richardson Progressing or Regressing?

Rookies playing a huge role in Browns' streak

BEREA A big reason the Browns won their third game win in a row was due to the contributions of rookies. Pat Shurmur was asked if it was the confidence theyve gained or the opportunity to show their skill set. Its probably a combination of both, Shurmur said. When they have the confidence and opportunity and when those two meet they have the chance (to make plays). There was probably...
