Robert Griffin III’s condition improves but he is still limited in practice


Robert Griffin III after his injury Sunday

Robert Griffin III’s condition has improved over the past 24 hours, but the quarterback was still limited in practice as he tries to work his way back from a sprained knee suffered in Sunday’s game, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday.

“Better,” Shanahan said when asked how Griffin looked. “He looked more comfortable.”

Shanahan declined to say how much of a workload Griffin took, saying “I can’t tell you that. But he did look better.”

Shanahan said he still doesn’t know whether Griffin will play Sunday in Cleveland. He would like to see Griffin practice full speed but doesn’t know if he can.  Shanahan said that even if Griffin moves well, the Redskins must make a decision on whether the quarterback will be at increasedrisk of injury if he plays.     

Shanahan said that linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and left tackle Trent Williams (thigh) also were limited in practice.
