Redskins Receiver Pierre Garcon Says Cousins Will Start Sunday Vs Browns

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s going to be quite a week waiting on Robert Griffin III’s knee.

The intrigue over the status of the league’s top-rated quarterback took a twist Tuesday when Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon said on ESPN that Kirk Cousins will start in place of Griffin this week against the Cleveland Browns.

Either Garcon was spilling the beans, or he was merely making an assumption on his own. Teammates were quick to point out that no such announcement about Griffin or Cousins has been made to the team.

Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to give an update when practice resumes Wednesday.

Griffin has a mildly sprained right knee after getting hit late in regulation during Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.
