RG3 Has Mild Sprain of Lateral Collateral Ligament
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Monday afternoon the knee injury to his superstar rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III is a mild sprain of the LCL.
Shanahan won't rule out the possibility of RG3 playing this Sunday against the Browns.
"We're going to do what we think is in Robert's best interest, and usually when you do that, it's in the team's best interest as well," says Shanahan. "We're not going to put him out there if we think he's not completely healthy, and he can't do the things to help us win. That's part of the evaluation during the week. Same thing with London Fletcher. Same thing with Trent Williams."
Griffin led the Redskins to their 4th straight win on Sunday, but was hurt on a play in the final seconds, as the Redskins were driving against the Ravens.
Shanahan says Griffin has mild swelling in the knee and is receiving treatment multiple times a day.
Back-up QB Kirk Cousins capped of the Redskins 31-28 comeback with a touchdown toss, and a run for two point conversion.
The Redskins are just one game behind the giants for first place in the NFC East, and one game behind the Seahawks for a wild card playoff spot.
