Robert Griffin III says planting, throwing not a problem: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday that planting and throwing with his injured knee was not a problem. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday that he was not having any problems planting and throwing on his injured knee. Griffin suffered a mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament in last weekend's overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens. He was replaced late in the game by Kirk Cousins, who led Washington to the tying and winning scores.

Griffin , however, said after practice on Wednesday that he would need a brace if he plays on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Griffin was a participant in practice but declined to say if he would suit up against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin sounds determined to keep playing despite the latest injury. Fantasy owners have to be somewhat concerned about using him this weekend but may not have a choice if he's active.

Fantasy owners should wait until later in the week before making a decision about putting Griffin in their lineups.
