Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has a Grade 1 sprain of the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee and is not being ruled out for the Redskins' game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said on Monday.

Griffin was injured in the fourth quarter of the Redskins' 31-28 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens after being hit by Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. The Redskins had surgeon Dr. James Andrews on the sidelines during the game and he cleared Griffin to return to the game after he was injured. Backup Kirk Cousins came on in relief and led the Redskins on the game-tying touchdown drive in regulation.

"I'm not a doctor, but I know what an ACL feels like," Griffin said after the game. "And it doesn't feel like an ACL. ... If I felt that, I'd be pretty nervous. But we won the game, everybody's praying for me, I feel pretty good right now about the whole situation. I'm not too nervous, but I'll definitely be praying during the MRI."

Griffin was 15 for 26 for 246 yards and a touchdown pass and had seven rushes for 34 yards before he was injured. The Redskins have won four games in a row to remain in the playoff hunt in the NFC.
