RG3 injury: Redskins QB likes his chances to play in Week 15 vs. Browns

USA TODAY Sports

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III was limited in practice on Wednesday but hopes to play in Week 15 against the Browns.

Unable to finish out his team's Week 14 win over Baltimore, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was back on the practice field on Wednesday in a limited capacity.

Though he has a mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, Griffin told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he still likes the way he is recovering just three days after suffering the injury, and believes that he should be on track to play against the Browns this Sunday.

"Sunday night, I thought there was probably no chance that I could play the next week," Griffin said. "Yesterday, I felt better about it. And today I feel really good about it, so it just depends on if I continue to progress the way I am."

When grilled by reporters on if he'll officially be in action this Sunday, the former No. 2 overall pick did not disclose even the slightest bit of evidence. And while backup quarterback Kirk Cousins filled in admirably in relief for Griffin in last weekend's thrilling overtime victory, the Browns would be thrilled to see the former Michigan State star under center instead of a versatile threat like Griffin this Sunday. Nevertheless, the fact that Washington's star rookie is practicing on a Wednesday still bodes quite well for his chances to contribute in this weekend's pivotal game.
