Washington Redskins fans might have panicked when it appeared Pierre Garcon let the cat out of the bag that Kirk Cousins would start Sunday's game in Cleveland in a recent interview with ESPN, but the Redskins have yet to rule Robert Griffin III out.
"A person familiar with the Redskins' planning" has told Mark Maske of the Washington Post that nothing has changed since head coach Mike Shanahan announced on Monday that there was "definitely" a chance RG3 could suit up despite a Grade 1 sprain to the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.
This truly seems like a 50-50 shot right now. We've heard from parties that strongly believe Griffin will play and others that aren't so sure. We'll get a better grip on Griffin's status when the team returns to the practice field today.
And you can be sure that we'll be updating that status throughout the remainder of the week.
