RG3 says he has sprained shoulder, will be fine

Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Eagles that he suffered a sprained shoulder from a hit he took in the fourth quarter.

Griffin returned for the game’s final drive and said he’ll be OK for next week’s game vs. the Ravens.

Griffin took a stiff shot to his upper body — it was difficult to tell if he took a helmet to his neck, chest or shoulder — while trying to get out of bounds on a fourth-quarter scramble. TV cameras showed medical staff talking with Griffin on the sideline, and though Griffin appeared to be in pain he finished the game.

The Eagles sacked Griffin three times. Griffin was 12-of-26 passing for 190 yards in the game, his first with the Browns and first since 2014.

    Instead of betting on any Browns game there should be wagering on what body part RG3 injures every game

    I believe him. He’s the most talented QB on this league. Unfortuantely Cleveland is the equivalent of Chernobyl on the NFL Landscape and I don’t think even RGIII can help them. They should relocate the franchise completely.

    According to rotoworld

    “Griffin took a big shot late in the fourth quarter, and it was all his own fault. He scrambled to the right and tried to run over CB Jalen Mills, only to hurt himself doing so.”

    RGIII threw for under 50 percent as the Browns best QB, McCown sat.

    Meanwhile, the QB the Browns passed on, but was injured most of preseason and thrust into the starters role after the Eagles traded Bradford, played much better than RGIII.

    Browns got walloped in their most winnable game of the season. Guess that’s why you don’t let good plays walk, trade them, or outright release them.

    That doesn’t make your roster better, it makes it worse.

    The fact that the smartest guys in the room will be disappointed if they win ‘only’ four games shows an alarming disconnect with reality. A delusional front office is not the way to become better.

    You shouldn’t be disappointed, you should think it is a miracle if they win four games. Because they look like a 0 to 2 win team through and through.

    Poor Browns fans.

    I’m always suspicious of self reported injuries.
    I’m thinking he’s building in an excuse for being terrible on the field.
    It’s a brand thing.

    RGme…. guy STILL hasn’t learned that as the QB, you can’t take a risk of being knocked out, no such thing as a franchise QB who ends up injured every season

    scrambling QBs are worthless, when will teams learn?

    Mr. Glass strikes again. He wont last the season.

  7. skinstowin says: Sep 11, 2016 6:02 PM

    logical and I have one thing in common, the skins. we don’t have QB assessments aligned, however. RG3 is DONE. 12/26, buck-fiddy, 0 TD, 2 INT will be a common line # on his stats until week 6 when he’s benched.

    Now, on the other hand, if Kirk was running Cleveland’s offense, theres a good chance Cleveland hoists a Lombardi in 5 months. They’d go 13-3 or better with Captain Kirk!

    He’d shred any and all AFC secondaries without an offensive line in front of him. He’s that good.

    “RG3 says he has sprained shoulder, will be fine”

    He may be “fine” physically but RGFragile ego is simply not an nfl level QB. Might be fine in the CFL, might be fine on an arena team. Just doesn’t have what it takes mentally to play at the nfl level.

  9. ricko1112 says: Sep 11, 2016 6:07 PM

    This is why the Browns will always be the Browns. RG Me stinks! 31 other teams knew he stinks. Of course, maybe the Browns are trying to tank like the Colts like to do.

    Instead of the infamous and blatantly obvious “Suck for Luck” campaign, is there a “Lost ’em for Watson” or “Fakers for Baker” embarrassment coming?

    Bob just isn’t of NFL starting QB caliber. He might be a good 2nd or 3rd string QB to come in for a few series until the starter can get back on the field. If your team has to start Bob week after week, it’s best to study up on the college game to see who might be the future QB.

    RG3 would be fine if he started eating at Subway again.

  12. thefirstsmilergrogan says: Sep 11, 2016 6:27 PM

    shouldn’t the brown’s medical staff be giving his injury status? but of course this is bob griffin, and he has a brand to represent.

  13. defscottyb says: Sep 11, 2016 6:28 PM

    Still mad the Skins let him go. If he stayed on the Skins he’d have a chance. Cleveland is the factory of sadness.

  14. njbrian67 says: Sep 11, 2016 6:37 PM

    What will the Browns regret most:

    1) Drafting Johnny Football
    2) Passing on Wentz
    3) Relying on Robert Griffin III

  15. imnotsorryisaidthat says: Sep 11, 2016 6:38 PM

    he needs to move to wr or db he cannot play qb in this league

  16. laserw says: Sep 11, 2016 7:32 PM

    Anyone who thinks this jerk will ever be a winning QB is an idiot. He’s just as awful as he was in Washington. He is gutless and selfish – and he doesn’t produce touchdowns when he is in there. He has one of the lowest percentage of passing TD’s to attempts as anyone with his number of starts in NFL history.

    The game was lost when Cam Erving launched the snap over Roberts head. Major momentum swing that caused a safety that never should have happened. The score was 10 – 13 at the time and the Eagles marched down the field and scored a TD which deflated the whole team. This all does not fall on Robert. Lets see how the year plays out before judgement is rendered.

    Get better soon !

    Has he finished his new logo yet? Injury, awful stat line against a bad team….can all be fixed with a new logo.

    No doubt he’s brand conscious. But there’s also no doubt that that injury was real.
