BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III still doesn't know if he'll start this week against Cincinnati.

Griffin was only recently cleared for contact after breaking a bone in his left shoulder in the season opener on Sept. 11. RG3 said doctors had told him it was ''highly unlikely'' he would be able to play again this season, but ''the best-case scenario happened.''

Browns coach Hue Jackson said it was too early in the week to know if Griffin will be ready to face the Bengals. The Browns had their first practice following their bye week on Monday.

Griffin said he'll be OK with whatever Jackson decides, but he said it's important for him to return to the field and try and help the Browns (0-12) get their first win. He hopes to give them a spark in the final four games as Cleveland tries to avoid becoming the second team in league history to go 0-16.
