Injured Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III tested his mildly sprained right knee Wednesday morning during the short period of practice open to media.

Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to describe the extent of Griffin’s participation in practice when he meets with reporters later today. Griffin is scheduled to speak with reporters at approximately 1:45 p.m.


Griffin’s attendance Wednesday should not be interpreted as a clear indication of his status for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. His mildly sprained right knee will be treated and monitored throughout the week.

Griffin — wearing a helmet, cleats and a jersey like the rest of his teammates — practiced dropping back, planting and throwing short passes, which appeared to have their normal velocity. He even threw one pass from behind his back.

He ran in a straight line at a moderate pace and also shuffled his feet laterally in separate portions of the team’s stretching session. He moved smoothly at times and gingerly at others.

Griffin wore long pants, so whether he wore a knee brace was not evident.
