Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin IIIfeels good today and appears ready to play against the Browns on Sunday.
Coach Mike Shanahan said today that when he saw the hit Griffin took on Sunday he was nervous, but after talking to Dr. James Andrews, who examined Griffin, he’s optimistic.
“We felt very good with the news,” Shanahan said of Dr. Andrews’ examination. “When I looked at it on film I thought it would be worse than it was.”
Shanahan described the injury as a lateral collateral ligament sprain.
“Robert has a mild sprain of the LCL — it’s Grade 1,” he said. “He’s had some mild swelling. He had his right knee repaired, his ACL, in 2009, and that looks great. No problem there. We’ll evaluate it day by day, see how it is on Wednesday, but talking to him today he felt pretty good.”
With this news coming a day after Griffin took a hit that could have been very bad, the Redskins have to feel very good.
