The answer of whether or not Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will play Sunday at the Cleveland Browns may not come until at least Thursday, a source has told Rich Campbell of ESPN 980.

It is then the Redskins will have a "good feeling" on RG3's status, says Campbell.

On Sunday, in a thrilling 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens, Griffin sprained his LCL and left the game. In his absence, the Redskins rallied behind backup quarterback Kirk Cousins to collect their fourth straight victory.

Despite the exciting win, every football fan in the nation's capital was worried about Griffin's knee. Early reports say Griffin's injury is not too bad, however, there's still questions on whether or not he will play this Sunday.

In the meantime, Grant Paulsen is saying a source has told him Washington is preparing like Griffin will not be able to play.

This season, Griffin has passed for 2,906 yards with 18 touchdowns and is second on the team with 748 rushing yards.
