Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III practiced Friday for the third straight day as he continues to progress toward playing through a mildly sprained right knee in Sunday’s road game against the Cleveland Browns.

Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to describe the extent of Griffin’s participation after the session concludes around 1:30 p.m.


During the brief period of practice open to reporters, Griffin dropped back, planted on his right leg and threw passes to receivers during position drills. He also practiced handoffs.

Griffin moved quite well, but he favored his injured leg at times.

The Redskins have not announced whether Griffin or fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will start against the Browns. Shanahan said this week he “probably” will string the uncertainty out until inactives are announced at approximately 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

“I think Robert is going to be able to show us he can move well,” offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. “It’s more is his knee stable enough and can he protect himself in there and is there a risk of a further injury.”
