Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is practicing today, three days after being knocked out of a game against the Ravens with a sprained lateral collateral ligament.
Griffin did not appear to be slowed significantly by his knee injury while doing individual drills, CSNWashington.com reports. Griffin wore sweatpants, so it wasn’t clear whether he had a brace on his knee.
Reporters were only allowed to watch stretching and individual drills, and the Redskins haven’t yet said whether Griffin or backup Kirk Cousins would run the first-string offense in team drills.
On Monday Redskins coach Mike Shanahan sounded optimistic about Griffin’s chances of playing against the Browns on Sunday, although Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon later said he expected Cousins to start. We likely won’t know for sure until Sunday whether Griffin can go, but the fact that he’s practicing is a very promising sign.
