The decision whether Robert Griffin III will play on Sunday will be made solely by the team doctor, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com.
The Washington Redskins face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, with the status of quarterback Robert Griffin III one of the most talked about topics in the league this week. The rookie sensation is listed as questionable for this weekend's contest as he recovers from a sprained LCL in his right knee suffered last week late in the game against the Baltimore Ravens.
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the decision on whether Griffin will play will be solely determined by the team doctor:
A decision on Robert Griffin III's playing status against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 is out of the hands of the Washington Redskins quarterback and his coaches.
NFL.com's Albert Breer cited a team source Saturday in reporting that Griffin's status will come down to the Redskins doctor's assessment.
RGIII was limited to individual drills in practice this week, with fellow rookie signal caller Kirk Cousins taking reps with the first team.
Washington has won four games in a row, with RGIII the dynamic offensive catalyst for the Redskins offense. The rookie is the league's top-rated passer through the season's first 14 weeks, accounting for 24 total touchdowns (18 passing, 6 rushing) and over 3,600 total yards on the year.
