The Washington Redskins' surprising drive to the playoffs will have to continue, for at least one Sunday, without superstar quarterback Robert Griffin III. The Redskins will not dress RGIII for Sunday's game in Cleveland -- "The decision was not my own... But I will be there for my team!!! In every way I possibly can," Griffin tweeted late Saturday.
