It looks more and more like the Browns and their fans are going to get another look this season at quarterback Robert Griffin III under center, as today the team announced he has been designated for return from injured reserve and will take the practice field today in Berea.
Griffin has only played in one regular season game this season, the opening day loss to the Eagles, and in that game suffered a fractured coracoid bone in his left shoulder.
In that loss to the Eagles he was 12 of 26 passing for 190 yards and added 37 rushing yards.
He’s been on injured reserve since September 12th. The Browns have 21 days to activate Griffin or he must remain on the injured reserve list for the remainder of the season.
Josh McCown will start Sunday against the Giants at First Energy Stadium as Cody Kessler is out after suffering a concussion against the Steelers in a 24-9 home loss Sunday.
The Browns then will have the bye week, and it’s possible that RGIII could be under center for the team’s home game on December 11th against the Cincinnati Bengals if all goes well in his return.
