RG3 Injury: Redskins rookie QB questionable vs. Browns

USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 15 matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) has been listed as questionable along with linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) for the team's Week 15 matchup against Cleveland Browns, according to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan. RG3 sprained his LCL during the team's 31-28 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens last week, and he was only able to engage in limited participation in practice on Thursday. Head coach Mike Shanahan had this to say to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN-Washington regarding RG3's chances of playing on Sunday: "He keeps on improving every day. He looked much, much better today."

As for Cleveland-native London Fletcher, he is nursing an ankle injury but he has played in 237 consecutive games -- a steak that dates back to 1998 -- and it's difficult to think he would miss a game played in his hometown.

If Griffin III misses the game, the Redskins may turn to fellow rookie Kirk Cousins. RG3 is a leading candidate for 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year. He has completed 233-of-351 passes, thrown for 2,902 yards and passed for 18 touchdowns while throwing just four interceptions.
