As the Browns prepare to face the Redskins this weekend, they still are unsure of which quarterback will be behind center. RG3 sprained his knee this past weekend against the Ravens in a victory. The victory was completed with fellow rookie and backup Kirk Cousins operating the offense.
Now, ESPN is reporting that Robert Griffin III practiced today, but the results were mixed. RG3 looked normal stretching, but then appeared “gimpy” during throwing drills.
One thing that can be assumed by the Browns no matter who plays quarterback is that the running threat is decreased from what it was just a week ago. If Griffin plays, you have to assume he won’t be darting all over the field making plays with his feet and easily escaping pressure. Same rules apply if Kirk Cousins plays.
The Redskins are playing well right now anyway and for the Browns there’s no such thing as an “easy” game. Still, advantage Browns for now.
