Griffin won’t even suit up on Sunday

Griffin Reuters

So much for the cryptic tweet from the Redskins that Kirk Cousins “is expected” to start at quarterback.

According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, usual starter Robert Griffin III won’t even be in uniform for Sunday’s game at Cleveland, due to a knee injury suffered last Sunday.

This means that the options at quarterback will be Cousins and the original RG3 (and out), Rex Grossman.

The 7-6 Redskins have won four games in a row, and they need another victory today to remain in the playoff chase.

    At halftime he will get his uni on

    Even though the timing for this injury may be bad, to play Griffin with a weakened knee could result in making something mild into something severe. So RGIII will just have to live to fight another day.

    Cousins might not have the reps this season, but last game he showed willingness and ability. The Skin’s are on the cusp of making the playoffs so I’ll bet that the O line will bow up and support him well.

    I don’t know which early game to watch today. I only have 2 screens.

    He will be lucky to suit up again this year. Two players for the Giants (Williams and Philips) dealt with knee sprains and missed a combined 13 games. Philips came back tweaked the same knee and has missed the last two games.

    RG 3 and Out? Hysterical.

    Smart move by the Skins. Even if they get bounced from the play-offs, why risk career threatening injury to your star QB. Good luck Cousins! But I like my Browns in this one!

    Skins may NOT have to win today. As much as it pains me to say it, Giants could blow it today. You know how much they hate to make it easy on themselves. This is exactly the kind of game NY has become infamous for not showing up for. If it was a playoff game, I would bet the house NY would run over Atlanta. Regular season game with playoff implications? For whatever reason, they often decide not to show up for those games.

    gimme the ball!

    Kirk Cousins will have a memorable performance today. No worries. Kid is wayyyy smart and should have been taken much higher in April. He’ll make believers of everyone this afternoon.

    Rex Grossman = RG3-and-out.

    That’s funny. :)

    May need to switch that pic to Cleveland now

  11. brownsfan39 says: Dec 16, 2012 10:14 AM

    Go Browns!

  12. peytonsneck18 says: Dec 16, 2012 10:34 AM

    Redskins fans better get use too seeing that picture…cause IRG3 will get carried off the field alot during his 3 year career

  13. worldwidebleater says: Dec 16, 2012 10:42 AM

    Until I see RGIII “inactive”, and RGIII and Out “active”, I don’t believe anything.

  14. clebrowntown says: Dec 16, 2012 10:43 AM

    RG3 was the first one on the field…
    lots of staffers in suits with him

  15. tinkletinkleonyourstar says: Dec 16, 2012 10:44 AM

    welcome to the big boys league bobby, knocked out two times in less than 16 games!
    you better change you style of play or your career will be vick-esque. (if it already isn’t)

  16. shanahanigans says: Dec 16, 2012 10:44 AM

    The guys at Brown’s stadium are reporting that RG3 is warming up.not typical behavior for someone who won’t suit up…

  17. brownoholic says: Dec 16, 2012 10:46 AM

    Here we go Brownies……..

  18. audient says: Dec 16, 2012 10:59 AM

    You know how you can tell that the Washington Redskins aren’t a legitimate contender? By the way they played hide-the-ball with RG3′s injuries.

  19. tillihawk says: Dec 16, 2012 11:09 AM

    I am a Skins fan and hope Cousins has a great game but my prediction is he throws several picks to a solid Browns defensive backfield. If Skins lose, they are done period for the year even if they win the last two games. Hope Cousins plays well for two reasons…a win and trade bait in the offseason. HTTR

    Skins are looking pretty smart for drafting Cousins now

  21. teal379 says: Dec 16, 2012 11:51 AM

    If Cousins lights it up – does that make RGIII a “system QB” like so many accused Rodgers of being after his #2 lit it up?

  22. itcons4gl says: Dec 16, 2012 11:59 AM

    That’s ridiculous. If the Redskins lose today they are still very much in the playoff hunt. They do not need to win to remain in the chase.

  23. jjacks1122 says: Dec 16, 2012 12:07 PM

    as long as we don’t have to see Rex tonight…

  24. bigbluecrew420 says: Dec 16, 2012 12:16 PM

    “Skins are looking pretty smart for drafting Cousins now”

    But how smart are they for drafting Rg3??? Sure he’s fun to watch but wouldn’t you want to watch him for all 16 games if you are a skins fan?

  25. rg3some says: Dec 16, 2012 12:18 PM

    Now, maybe he’ll learn his lesson and get down sooner.

  26. patsfan13 says: Dec 16, 2012 12:42 PM

    I don’t get to see RG111 play very often in my area, But every time I’ve seen him play, he’s been a lot of fun to watch. Let him heal. A long winning career, is more important than one game. Also Coach Shanahan has been around long enough to know what to try.

  27. lionsdraftguy says: Dec 16, 2012 12:53 PM

    Finally. Dont have to hear about RGIII anymore.

  28. bh83 says: Dec 16, 2012 1:58 PM

    Are people serious saying they were smart to draft cousins and he played so well last week? The guy has 2 NFL completions, pump your brakes. Mohamed Sanu is 1 for 1 for 73 yards, what a great job drafting that qb’s…..wide receiver rather.
