CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) - Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan won’t rule out rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III for Sunday’s game against the Browns.

Shanahan confirmed during his press conference Monday that Griffin sustained a “grade 1 sprain” of his right LCL and that he did not sustain any structural damage to his knee in Sunday’s 31-28 overtime victory over Baltimore.

“He’s definitely not ruled out for the Cleveland game,” Shanahan told reporters.

Rookie backup quarterback Kirk Cousins threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon with 29 seconds left and then ran in a 2-point conversion to tie the score 28-28 forcing overtime.

Griffin completed 15 of 26 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown and also ran 7 times for 34 yards before departing with the injury.

“Both of them will have a game plan,” Shanahan said. “And obviously Robert can do some things in the running game that Kirk can’t.”

Shanahan, who said that Griffin has mild swelling and is receiving treatment, added that they won’t play RG3 if he can’t do things they need him to to help them win this week.

The Redskins have won their last 4 to improve to 7-6 and trail the New York Giants by 1 game in the NFC East race.
