Robert Griffin III dealing with shoulder sprain

Thursday December 25th, 2014

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was limited in practice on Wednesday after suffering a sprained shoulder in Saturday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, according to multiple reports.

The injury occurred when Griffin was sacked by Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox in the fourth quarter.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden reportedly said Griffin is likely to play in the team's season-ending game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.


"He can throw the ball, it's just a little sore," Gruden said Wednesday. "We just want to make sure he doesn't aggravate it more, give him another couple days of rest and be ready to go Friday."

Washington (4-11) is in last place in the NFC East.
