RG3 injury: Browns prepare for Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III in Week 15

Rob Carr

With the status of Robert Griffin III unknown, the Browns will prepare to face Griffin and backup Kirk Cousins.

The Cleveland Browns began preparations for their game against the Washington Redskins, but with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III injured, the Browns are preparing to face both Griffin and backup quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Griffin suffered a sprained LCL against the Baltimore Ravens and is now considered day-to-day. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin has "definitely" not been ruled out of Sunday's game in Cleveland. Griffin has rushed for 748 yards this season and provides an extra dynamic that Cousins does not.

While the two quarterbacks have slightly different skill sets, Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said Cleveland will instead try to prepare for the offense rather than the player. Shurmur said while the Redskins have extra wrinkles designed for Griffin, both quarterbacks can execute plays in the passing game and option running game.

The Browns are familiar with both quarterbacks from the draft process. Cleveland attempted to trade up to draft Griffin while Shurmur said he studied up on Cousins as well.
