RG3 practices with Redskins, despite sprained knee
Question of the Day
ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - Robert Griffin III high-stepped and moved laterally with barely a hitch as he stretched with his Washington Redskins teammates, then looked a little gimpy during throwing drills during the first part of practice.
The league’s top-rated passer was back on the field Wednesday, three days after spraining his right knee during an overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Griffin has a mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament, the result of a hit by defensive tackle Haloti Ngata at the end of a 13-yard scramble late in regulation of the 31-28 victory.
If Griffin is unable to play Sunday against Cleveland, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will get the call for the Redskins (7-6). Washington has won four straight and sit one game behind the first-place New York Giants in the NFC East.
Wednesday marked the first practice in preparation for the Browns.
Griffin wore a helmet, his No. 10 jersey and sweatpants _ a fashion accessory favored by many of his teammates on the chilly day. The sweatpants covered up any brace that the rookie might have been wearing.
He took part in the full stretch routine with no apparent problems, but began favoring his right leg at times when he began planting and throwing, adding a slight hop after some passes.
While his knee might not be 100 percent, Griffin’s showmanship remains intact. At one point between drills he turned to wave at the group of reporters watching his every move.
The team, exercising its right under NFL rules, closed the practice to reporters after approximately 20 minutes.
