UPDATE: The Cleveland Browns have placed Robert Griffin III on injured reserve.
During the Cleveland Browns’ Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, quarterback Robert Griffin III banged up his shoulder. At the postgame press conference, Griffin attempted to downplay the issue, saying he would be ready for Week 2.
However, there could be cause for concern.
On Monday, multiple reports came out indicating Griffin has a “potentially serious” shoulder injury.
Griffin is undergoing an MRI and further testing on Monday.
If Griffin is unable to go in Week 2 against division rival Baltimore Ravens, the Browns would likely turn to veteran Josh McCown. They also have rookie Cody Kessler on the roster, but there is no indication he is ready to see the field.
