After being limited for a third straight day in practice, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is questionable for Sunday’s game at Cleveland. And he remains a game-time decision.
Griffin was able to work during individual and group sessions. He even executed a bootleg roll-out, though it did not appear he was yet at full speed.
“He keeps on improving every day, so he’s much better today,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said.
There are varying reports about how much time Griffin spent taking first team reps. Some players have said he took some; other reports say he hasn’t. However, there’s no doubt that fellow rookie Kirk Cousins took the majority, if not all, of the firts-teamrepetitions. Griffin suffered a Grade 1 sprain of his right lateral collateral ligament in Sunday’s 31-28 overtime win over Baltimore.
Shanahan said they’d evaluate Griffin further Saturday. They have a walk-through before leaving for Cleveland.
Some teammates say they honestly don’t know if Griffin will be able to play.
“[Cousins] has to be prepared to go either way,” Shanahan said. “Anytime you get reps, a quarterback has always got to be ready to go, especially in a situation like this. You have to be prepared mentally to go.”
Meanwhile, linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and left tackle Trent Williams (thigh) were limited and are questionable for Sunday. Running back Alfred Morris (ill) missed practice but is probable.
