03:30 PM ET 12.10 | Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has a mild LCL sprain in his right knee, according to head coach Mike Shanahan on Monday afternoon. The injury has been diagnosed as a Grade 1 sprain and he has been listed as day-to-day. Griffin might be able to start Sunday against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 as Shanahan stated that he has "definitely not been ruled out" as of Monday afternoon. However, the coach said that he will not play if he's not completely healthy.

The sooner they get away from that damn college offense the better off RGIII is going to be.

That offense is going to get RGIII killed.

Didn't we say that about Michael Vick?

And weren't we right?

And start looking for the number 2 reciever.

They are gonna need to make him sit. He's not the kind of player who can nurse an injury on the field. He's "all go" if he's in the game. The OL just can't keep him safe and his receivers can't keep him from having to run.

The Browns, whatever other woes they face, are no joke when it comes to putting licks on the QB. The Skins got Cousins for a reason. Let him run things for a week just in case.

I couldn't agree more, The Divisional games with the Eagles and the Cowboys are more important than a win against the Browns but I think Cousins can get the job done.

What the 'Skins really need are some Offensive Linemen that can **protect** RG III and give him the needed time to throw those 'zingers' to his WR's, etc...
