Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that quarterback Robert Griffin III has progressed all week and that he was “much better” on Friday, leaving him to be listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week.
“We’ll get a chance to evaluate him [Saturday] and talk to the doctors tomorrow and make a decision,” Shanahan said, via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times.
Shanahan has made sure that he’s covered in the event that Griffin’s sprained right knee doesn’t allow him to go. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Redskins players have told him that Griffin only did individual drills in practice this week. Kirk Cousins has gotten all of the first team reps this week to prepare him in the event he starts against the Browns.
That said, Glazer also reports that Griffin “truly” will be a game-time decision on Sunday. Cousins needs the reps with the starters more than Griffin at this point in the season and Griffin was going to be limited anyway because of the knee injury.
And so the waiting game continues in Washington.
