Robert Griffin Jr. says his son, the Redskins’ injured star quarterback, plans to play Sunday when Washington takes on the Cleveland Browns in Cleveland.
“He’s doing good, he’s in high spirits,” Williams said Monday afternoon. “We’re lucky. It was a pretty, nasty, awkward hit. For him not to be seriously injured, it’s a blessing.”
In Week 5, Griffin suffered a concussion. His status for the sixth game was uncertain early in the week, but Griffin was cleared to play and didn’t miss the following game.
Williams has played through knee injuries in each of the last three seasons, but didn’t want to say whether he expected Griffin to play.
“That’s totally up to him,” Williams said. “His health is far more important than any game we’ll play this season. His well-being is the only thing he should be worried about at this time. It’s really not worth injuring more, if he is at risk. It’s all up to him, with what his situation is. My situation’s a little different.”
