Robert Griffin III was able to practice on Wednesday and feels more confident about his chances of playing Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Griffin sustained a Grade 1 LCL sprain during the final minutes of regulation against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14. After leaving the game for one play, he returned for four snaps before leaving the game for good.
On Monday afternoon, head coach Mike Shanahan stated that Griffin was listed as day-to-day and that he would not play in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns if he was not 100 percent healthy.
Griffin stated on Wednesday that his knee felt better each morning since sustaining the injury. He admitted that he initially thought he would not be able to play against Cleveland but feels more confident about his chances.
Griffin: "I feel like I can play through any injury. Does that mean I'll play on Sunday? We'll see."— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) December 12, 2012
While Griffin elected not to elaborate on how much he was able to do on Wednesday, he stated that he was able to do enough that he felt comfortable pushing himself in Thursday and Friday's practices.
Shanahan stated that Griffin was limited in Wednesday's practice, but expressed that he was impressed with what he was able to do.
If he does play on Sunday, he will be wearing a brace.
