Robert Griffin’s status up in the air for Week 15

Griffin Reuters

The good news for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin is that an MRI on his right knee shows no serious ligament damage.

The bad news is that he could still miss a game because of it.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Griffin will get treatment and will be evaluated in the coming days.  His status for next Sunday’s game against the orange-hot Browns is up in the air.

Even if Griffin can return in Week 16, a loss next week without him could make it harder to get to the postseason.  Then again, based on the way Kirk Cousins played on Sunday against the Ravens, it may not matter a whole lot.

Meanwhile, the Browns now have to prepare for both guys, until further notice.  We’ve got a feeling coach Mike Shanahan will be milking that cow a little bit this week.

Or a lot.

    Glad it’s notvs torn ACL and I’m not even a skins fan.

  2. logicalvoicesays says: Dec 9, 2012 8:09 PM

    Cleveland is essentially a bye week. Cousins can beat them, then let RGIII throttle Philly, Dallas, rest of NFC and then the AFC representative at the Superbowl. God is with RGIII and the Redskins.

  3. geniusfan says: Dec 9, 2012 8:10 PM

    The Browns are a team I wouldn’t want to face right now. They’ve been on fire over the past few weeks and losing a guy like RG3 for this game could end up costing the Redskins the NFC East.

  4. flavordave says: Dec 9, 2012 8:15 PM

    It doesnt matter who the Redskins QB is, they are still irrelevant much like the last 2 decades. RG3 is a great kid and can be a great QB, but when the coaching staff leaves him in the game while hopping on one leg, I dont think he’ll last long without a major injury. Skins remain doomed with that owner and management.

  5. unkrautsalat says: Dec 9, 2012 8:18 PM

    Hope he’s alright, NFL is more fun with him.
    That being said: I thought God was with the Redskins, seems like that dude has better stuff to do after all.

    Not gonna be as easy as you think.

  9. kingpel says: Dec 9, 2012 8:21 PM

    No RGIII, I’m taking the Browns to win.

  10. boctavious says: Dec 9, 2012 8:22 PM

    RG3 is lucky to not face the Browns D. He certainly would be crushed. Browns will win. Redskins Defense is soft. Secondary will be scorched by Gordon and Little…..cousins is a rookie, limited action: he’ll show his mistakes in time especially against a tough Browns Defense.

  11. logicalvoicesays says: Dec 9, 2012 8:24 PM

    No, You haven’t been paying attention. The Redskins are the hottest team in the NFL. I refuse to fear the Cleveland Browns. We are elite, therefore, easy win.

  12. notinjuschillin says: Dec 9, 2012 8:24 PM

    Don’t believe Cousins can run that option as effectively as Griffin so I’m predicting that the Browns will stop Morris and make Cousins throw the ball which will lead to interceptions and or a high incomplete percentage.

    Admit it Redskin fans…that option play doesn’t work without Griffin…defenses will not honor the QB run.

  13. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 9, 2012 8:25 PM

    Give Cousins the full week of practice, and the Redskins can beat Cleveland, and Philly, and Dallas…. HAIL

  14. maatopdogg32 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:26 PM

    Cleveland is not a bye week as they have good pieces on offense. They have nothing to lose and will play spoiler and will have something to prove and I expect them to go all out like- going for it on 4th downs, fake punts and field goals…etc. this is a trap game.

  15. theblowtorchreview says: Dec 9, 2012 8:31 PM

  18. skinsfan6892 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:34 PM

    leave the Redskins game watching to the Skins fans. The coaching staff did not leave him in the game, he told them he wanted to stay in. when the coaches saw him hurting they pulled him out. RG3 has the right to make the decision to stay in the game. Many quarterbacks have done the same. He wants to win and we love that about him. Hope your recovery is a speedy one Robert. Hail!

  19. joeyd524 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:35 PM

    My biggest wager of the year will be on Cleveland beatin Washington,Cleve playing well and will run the ball down skins throat

  20. boctavious says: Dec 9, 2012 8:35 PM

    Redskins defense is NOT ELITE. Trich is blowing right through that downy soft group.

  21. schmedley69 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:36 PM

    The Eagles will beat the Redskins on Dec. 23rd. Nick Foles is really coming into his own, and I’ve got news for you RG3 fans: when it’s all said and done, Nick Foles will be a better QB than RG3. Bank on it. Enjoy this little fairy-tale while you can. I seriously doubt that God is with any football team, and if he was with one, I seriously doubt that he would pick one owned by Daniel Snyder.

  22. amflanagan1 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:38 PM

    I love everyone that just keeps saying “if he keeps up this style of play hell get injured.” Remember Tom Brady just standing in the pocket getting crushed tearing his ACL? It could happen to anyone.

  23. logicalvoicesays says: Dec 9, 2012 8:47 PM

    You haters act like Mike Shanahan is some regular coach. He’s the best HC in the sport…if he can win with Rex Grossman, he’ll have zero problems beating the mistake by the lake with Kirk Cousins. Case closed.

  24. skinsgal4life says: Dec 9, 2012 8:50 PM

    I just hope Robert is OK. No matter what happens during the rest of the season, no one can say that RGIII hasn’t been a classy, electrifying player–no matter which team you support.

  25. gking11 says: Dec 9, 2012 8:51 PM

    It makes me smile these days when people dismiss my Browns. We might not make the playoffs this season, but there’s no question that we’re on the rise. Our D is to be reckoned with, especially our fearsome and DEEP D-line. Go on ‘Skins fans, deride my team, mouth off, do whatever chest-thumping you feel necessary.

    My team does my talking for me on Sundays, on the gridiron. We show up. Will yours?

    I remember as a skin fan when. I too was delusional. Good luck with that.

  30. ballboy48 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:04 PM

    Cleveland is far from a walk over, these days! They are playing great the past month and a half.

    I hope RGIII gets better soon!

  31. janvanflac says: Dec 9, 2012 9:04 PM

    RGIII is definitely a unique player but I’m not sure how well he’s going to hold up long term. His body type and playing style don’t bode well for that.

  32. ahmiller21 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:05 PM

    As a Skins fan I worry about this game. They win the hard ones (Dallas, NY, Baltimore) and lose the ones they should win (St. Louis, Carolina). Without RG3 it’s gonna be tough. As an avid reader of this website, and someone who doesn’t comment much I have to say something. There are a lot of Redskins haters on this site for some reason and I really don’t understand at all. You’re entitled to your opinions, but if you’re not a Dallas, NY or Philly fan then why, and for all you trolls who clearly don’t know jack about football, your comments are quite amusing. First off, Foles is not nor barring a career ending injury will never be better than RG3. Also, if you actually watch the games, the Redskins are hands down the hottest team right now, and their D has been playing lights out during the four game winning streak. I wish there was a test you had to take on football knowledge before you were allowed to comment on things you know clearly nothing about. Here is to a speedy recovery for Griff because yes, without him we have no chance (even though Cousins could be something special). Their offense isn’t built for his style. HAIL!!!

  33. skinsfaninnebraska says: Dec 9, 2012 9:06 PM

    Yep, Kirk Cousins is no threat running the ball. I’m sure that Kyle Shanahan would NEVER consider calling a QB draw play for a 2-point conversion with the game on the line, against a playoff-quality opponent, with RGIII out, and Cousins on in relief.

    Because that would NEVER work!

  34. joeyd524 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:08 PM

    See above

  35. duncanthecat says: Dec 9, 2012 9:08 PM

    Sorry folks, neither CLEV or PHIL stand a chance against the Redskins, irregardless of RGIII’s participation.

    Count on it.

  36. peytonsneck18 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:09 PM

  39. joeyd524 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:12 PM

    So cousins can be something special but foles no? And I do hate the skins cowboys and eagles..

    See above was for janvan post

  40. jdrew506 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:21 PM

    Ahmiller as a NY Giants fan I can tell u that there are haters here because of people like logical who after not even a full season has declared RG3 the best player who has ever played the game. Comments like those get response from fans of other teams especially ones who have playoff and Super Bowl wins in the last 20 years. Is RG3 good, yeah he is and fun to watch but let him win something before he is called elite.

  41. ddogdaddy says: Dec 9, 2012 9:27 PM

    Not quite a hater but I am a bit of a semi-disliker. Mainly due to imbiciles who believe God wears maroon and gold.
    Like God wouldn’t have better fashion sense then that? But saying if Shanahan could win with Rex Grossman, he can easily win with Cousins. Hey numnuts if he was able to win with Grossman he wouldn’t have had to trade the Redskins future away to get RG3. This discussion is over now go rub your moms feet before bed time.

  42. gacoltfan says: Dec 9, 2012 9:29 PM

    How do you get the Redskins (won 4 straight) being “hands down” the hottest team? I think the Broncos (8straight) and Patriots (6 straight) might disagree.

  43. paredskinwarrior1985 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:31 PM

    lmao the Cleveland browns lmao who ever it will be cousins or RG3 they will leave the factory of sadness in a lot more pain!!!
    the redskins have a different offense for grossman and cousins!! idiots think they have just RG3 and thats it lmao

    trichardson won’t go over 100 yards against that redskins defense which is great against the run and weeden is the worst qb in the nfl, he will have a horrid day against the worst secondary in football he is that bad!!!!!!!!

    browns fans are complete jokes lmao beat the steelers 3rd string qb and they think they are going to the superbowl

  44. htowntexan says: Dec 9, 2012 9:35 PM

    Skins coaches are awful. Everyone all season has said Rg3 can’t be taking these hits. Yet the Shannahan boys keep letting him run. As well they should (although for the wrong reasons). They mortgaged the future to move up and pick this guy. They know if they don’t win now, they will be out of jobs again, and it’s doubtful they will coach again. The GM and owner sold have realized this and stepped in. Skins are cursed.

    Btw – I would say the team that is 11-1 is the hottest team in the league, not the 7-6 team.

  45. raiderinva says: Dec 9, 2012 9:36 PM

    So Robert Griffin the 3rd is the future.

    Kirk Cousins is the next Matt Flynn…

    You now have some hot game tape on him, time to increase his stock and let the future get healthy.

    If they can trade Cousins for a second round pick or a second plus….. Great investment with a quick turn around for a fourth round pick.

    Up To Bat for Cousins talent on tape:
    Oakland, Jets, Chiefs, Jaguars, and maybe Arizona.

  46. pixelito says: Dec 9, 2012 9:41 PM

    Skins fans can start making plans for where they’ll be watching the Giants this postseason.

  47. tundey says: Dec 9, 2012 9:46 PM

    RG3 is what? 22? These young kids recover fast. Did you Mess I come back in less than a week? I would not count out young Robert until kick off.

    And if he doesn’t play, Alfred Morris is #3 rusher in the league and Weeden throws INTs like its candy from a piñata

  48. ahmiller21 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:49 PM

    You don’t use teams that are expected to be good (Patriots, Broncos, Texans) and say that they are “hot”. The term is generally used on teams that have their issues then “catch fire”. I think going from 3-6 to 7-6 in consecutive weeks could be classified as “hot”. BTW Jdrew, I lump “logical” into my troll comment as well. I’ve read his comments and even as a fellow Skins fan he still comes across as an idiot. Also, I never said Foles can’t be good, I said its ridiculous to say he is better than RG3. Read slowly. Fact, the Skins are the best they have been in a long time and as a fan of 26 years I remember when they were great and I long for a return to that. Any REAL football fan should recognize they are FINALLY on the right track!

  49. garryjercia says: Dec 9, 2012 9:54 PM

    Calm down. Kirk played like 6 snaps

  50. rickc402 says: Dec 9, 2012 9:55 PM

    Give Cousins a week of practice, the Browns are better than their record but, they are starting Weeden not Joe Montana. So at the QB positions it’s a draw. Grossman is third string, and his experience could be invaluable. He knows Kyle’s offense having played in it for four years.

  51. rgthrizzle says: Dec 9, 2012 10:01 PM

    I don’t think the skins are sleeping on anybody the rest of the way but all these posters who claiming Browns have been so great. They have beat the steelers with Charlie batch throwing 3 picks, then beat the raiders and the chiefs.

    So by that logic the Redskins have won the last two Super Bowls because they beat the Giants twice in 2011 and beat the Packers in 2010.

    Obviously those teams were weak because they lost to the Redskins.

  55. mrfrostyj says: Dec 9, 2012 11:06 PM

    Looking at the Redskins/Browns game next week, IF RGIII plays it would be a close game. Without RGIII I feel bad for Cousins, Uncles, Aunts or anyone else that has to deal with the Browns defense. Redskins got the raw end of the schedule as this would have been an automatic win had this game been scheduled for the beginning of the season. Now the Browns top 10 defense from last year is healthy and their rookie offense is finally coming together so I’m more inclined to think this is an easier win for Cleveland than it is Washington. As odd as this sounds the Browns ending the season on a 6 game winning streak and 2nd place in the AFC North is extremely believable at this point.

    What’s more unbelievable is Cleveland was ready to flush the Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden, Mitchell Schwartz and Josh Gordon picks just to get RGIII. In hindsight that would have been the dumbest draft move ever (ok 2nd dumbest. picking Tebow in the first round by Denver still takes the cake) because those guys are a huge part of their turnaround. Talk about dumb luck.

  56. justintuckrule says: Dec 9, 2012 11:15 PM

    Healthy cousins is better than hobbled griffin in that offense. Skins are screwed. They’ve been playing on borrowed time anyway

  57. schmedley69 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:38 PM

    I love how Redskins fans think that they are a really good team now. They aren’t. Won’t make the playoffs.

  58. manningbowl88 says: Dec 9, 2012 11:42 PM

    seems like everybody except skins fans knew this day was coming sooner rather than later.. still RG3 is going to be great if he can stay healthy and once eli leaves nfc east hell start dominating assuming we dont get the aaron rodgers to our brett favre NYG ALL DAY!!!!!!!!

  59. briang123 says: Dec 10, 2012 12:22 AM

    Lets not get the Cousins annointing oil out just yet. In 2009, Kevin Kolb played better than Cousins did today filling in for McNabb. In 2010, he looked very good in place of Vick. We all low how that turned out.

    The answer is very very very easy. The reason people in here HATE the skins is because of their dumb a$$ posters like logicalvoices. You can bank on that guy posting some asinine comment on EVERY post about any NFC East team.

    On a side note, RG3 is still an unproven QB that nearly had his season ended today. The fact that the skins gave up all their picks to move up and draft him is a clear act of desperation that just will not pan out.

  61. hovenaut says: Dec 10, 2012 12:52 AM

    Time will tell. The Browns are much improved, I expect a good game next week.

    The Redskins are also playing better football….they just won three straight against division rivals, and pulled out a gritty late season win against a perennial playoff team. This isn’t the Redskins of recent memory.

    I’d like to see Cousins get another shot at a full game myself. He’s more than capable imo, and the Redskins would be wise not to risk RGIII further (i.e. get him healthy for the season finale vs Dallas).

  62. mrphootball says: Dec 10, 2012 1:32 AM

    People here seem to forget cousins was a pretty damn good college qb. He has ice in his veins. Don’t be surprised he starts and wins this game. People will always bash others as they are trying to get a leg up. Their teams are crappy and just because skins are doing well oh time to Nash them down. I hope the skins rest rg3 the next two games and save him for Dallas and the playoffs. Get well soon rg3!

  63. txnative61 says: Dec 10, 2012 2:24 AM

    That injury looked ugly on the replay, and knees are the weakest and most prone to injury of body parts, excepting concussions. Bounty’s or not, some very large men are trying to punish the QB every week, and the successful ones over time limit their exposure to hits as much as possible. Granted, he’s an exciting talent to watch at present, but his style is not amenable to long term success. Although he may be a lesser talent, I see Russell Wilson having the longer career, perhaps because he is smaller and knows he cannot survive taking big hits for long. Of course RGIII is intelligent and may learn to adjust his style.

  64. peytonsneck18 says: Dec 10, 2012 2:33 AM

    Awww..the skins are finally playing a December game that actually has meaning …since the early 80’s

  65. rbhttr says: Dec 10, 2012 2:49 AM

    Too all of the “I told you so crowd” I remember when Joe Thiesmann, Dan Marino, Carson Palmer and Tom Brady all got their knees blown out scrambling…oh wait…never mind.

  67. hjworton46 says: Dec 10, 2012 4:48 AM

    Nobody can doubt Mr. Griffins’ skill or toughness but the number of huge hits he takes makes anything over a 4 year NFL career look unlikely. He needs to start avoiding contact at all costs.

  68. richardbanksjr says: Dec 10, 2012 4:56 AM

    So let me get this straight browns fans. A team that ranks 23 in totals yards given up, 21st in pass yards given up, and 19th against the run, is a dominant defense? Really? By no means do I believe this is a cake walk game. Cleveland has arguably one of the best offensive lines in football when healthy. They also have a dynamic back that can do it all, along with several big play receivers that run sub 4.4 40 yard dash times. The tight end Cameron is quietly becoming a force of his own. Only thing in saying is lets not be homers and look at the facts. The facts are, Jamal Charles absolutely destroyed the browns with 165 yards today. In a game that Kansas city was getting stomped. The facts are the redskins are ranked in the top 5 against the run. Only four backs have run for 100+. Keep in mind we’ve faced league leading Adrian Peterson and top five rusher Doug Martin. Neither of which crossed the century mark. The facts are, the redskins are THE best rushing team in the nfl thus far, and what’s more? Even without adding rg3’s rushing yards the redskins are still top ten in rushing offense. My point is Cleveland may throw the ball all over the skins. They may pick rg3 or cousins off a couple times.(I doubt that) but to say a team that is 24th in the league in rushing offense and 19th against the run, will come and dominate the skins at what they do best, well that’s just absurd. The browns have allowed 9 out of 13 teams they have played to run for over 100+ yards this year. With all that being said, I believe this will be a close game. Cleveland has a lot to fight for. Technically they are not eliminated from playoff contention, not to mention everyone is auditioning for a job because of the front office change. Cleveland is a good team, and I seriously doubt a redskins team that has come to play every week will all of the sudden overlook that.

    OK. Let’s point out all of the ridiculous comments here.

    -RG3 is an unproven QB. Judging by your screen name, you are a Giants fan. Griffin has compiled the following stats against your boys. 33/49 67% completion percentage. 421 yds passing. 3 TDs, 0 ints. He also has carried the ball 14 times for 161 yards. He also has led this team to more wins this season than they had last season. I would say he has proven himself.

    -As for the comment about giving up all of our draft picks to move up and draft him. We actually only gave up 4 draft picks over 3 years to move up and get him. You are aware that there are more rounds to the draft than the first round? Right?

    -Saying we did it out of desperation. That would be like saying that the Giants mortgaged their future to move up and get Eli Manning from San Diego out of desperation. Kind of sounds ridiculous, huh?

    -Finally, Griffin is not out of the year. No matter how bad you want that to be the truth. He may not play this weekend. But, that would be his choice, based on medical advice.

    We all know that the haters are really mad right now that he did not suffer a career ending injury. Remember what happened the last time he used bad judgement in his running? He came back even better.

    It seems pretty obvious that most of you don’t know anything about Kirk Cousins. He may not be as “sexy” of a QB as RGIII or Andrew Luck, but is very capable of being a starter in this league. Many people were shocked that he was still available in the 4th Round of the draft. When he was selected, Shanahan called him and said, “I can’t believe you’re still available. I know we just drafted a QB, but you’re too good to pass up.” Or something along those lines.

    Cousins was a four year starter at Michigan State, and is the winningest QB in school history going 27-12 as a starter. He holds school records in most major QB stats, and played against some pretty strong defenses in the Big Ten. His last game was a gutsy win against Georgia in the Capital One Bowl. He has knocked other QB’s out of contention for a starting job. Keith Nichol transferred in after becoming Sam Bradford’s backup, but never got much of a chance. And the recruitment of Kirk Cousins may have contributed to Nick Foles transferring out after his freshman year.

    The guy knows how to win. He gets it. He’s solid in the pocket with an accurate arm capable of putting touch on the ball. Sure, he’s not gonna run like RGIII, but he can perform well outside of the pocket when necessary including running for 1st downs and TD’s. He’ll make an occasional mistake, but he will make up for up at some point. He’s a very cerebral player and makes sure he is always well-prepared. He’s got a damn good head on his shoulders too. Go on Youtube and search for “Kirk Cousins speech.” Tell me that’s not a guy you want on your team…..

    In my opinion it’s extremely unfortunate that people take someone like logicalvoicesays and stereotype an entire fanbase who truly cares about their team. Here are some points from a logical Skins fan who loves his team:

    -RG3 looks like he has a bright future in the NFL, but the future is a little less bright if he keeps taking hits
    -Skins fans are excited, and they have every right to be ESPECIALLY because of how irrelevant we have been for the past 20 years
    -No, we do not take RG3’s God comment at face value. And this is coming from a religious guy.
    -We SHOULD fear the Browns, because they are playing great football right now. But so are the Skins.
    -Cousins may have won us the game at the end but we don’t think we’ll be just as good without him.

    Some of you guys seriously have no idea what your talking about. Makes me sick… But then again your not a skins fan so you suck anyways.

    I have faith in cousins just as much as RG3 to beat the browns. How cousins came out and finished the game against the ravens was not only impressive, but really showed he can come out and get the job done when needed and under pressure. shannahan can definately use this to his advantage for next week. And he knows that with either root he takes, he has confidence in both guys.

    On a different note, the redskins had some mistakes yesterday but they never gave up and played their hardest until the very end. Great win for them and Im so impressed with how well they have come together after the bye week. The redskins are NOT the same team as they were the last 2 decades and I have a feeling they will be doing big things in the near future. HTTR babyy!!

    It’s too bad if the Browns beat the Skins without RGIII. The reason will be given by the media that they lost because they were without RGIII. Fact of the matter is that the Browns would have beat them with … or without … RGIII.

    You Cleveland fans and haters in general must be fools, NO ONE picked the Redskins to beat the Cowboys, Giants or Baltimore and now you clowns are picking “the mistake by the lake”, lol I had to use that, it made me laugh so much. Cleveland is on a 3 game winning streak but who have they beat, oh let’s see, the Steelers without Rothlisberger, the TERRIBLE Oakland Raiders and the Horrible KC Chiefs; C’MON MAN! The Skins have beat the Cowboys, Giants, and Ravens, now compare the records. But the Skins will not take this game lightly, either way with or without RG3 we will be able to beat you clowns. There is something about this team that’s bigger than any ONE player, as a fan you can see it and sense it, period, but as a Browns fan I can understand it if you have NO IDEA what that feels like. One more thing, get better soon RG3, my prayers are with you bro.

    The browns are playing well but RGIII or Cousins, the Skins are te better team. Tough Browns D? Charles just had 170 on the ground yesterday with that Browns D trying to stop him and make Brady Quinn beat them. Morris will do just fine. And we just beat Ray Rice. He’s better than T Rich. The only reason I worry is because this is one of those games the Skins usually drop the ball in. But I think we are finally seeing a new team in DC. Skins win 24-10

    Actually, the Skins were favored to beat Baltimore..

    The Browns are not a team to underestimate this season. I’m not a Browns fa but lived in cleveland for many years and have attended many Browns games. Therefore i feel the need to put in my 2 cents. The browns finally look somewhat stable on offense and the running game will give the redskins D some troubles. However the Browns D has been stellar at times and below average at others. If the browns fantastic running D decides to show up and if Kirk Cousins is under center, the Browns take this game. If not, then Morris will run all over them and it will turn into the Indianapolis game (not close despite the score). The Browns this season have absolutely nothing to play for and nothing to lose. They are resilient. Weirder things have happened in Cleveland.

    Reading some of these Browns trolls I’m so happy we don’t have to play these guys but every four years. These guys sound more arrogant and ignorant than Philly fans. (for those from Cleveland those big words mean dumb)
