Robert Griffin III appears to be on track to return this season. His earliest opportunity is Week 14, though even that is not guaranteed.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 5): Griffin III (shoulder/IR early in the season) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and 'all signs point' to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon on December 5.

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 5): There's a chance that Griffin could return this week. His running ability and vertical passing acumen make him a high upside play in any start, even if his injury risk gives him a low floor.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 1 vs PHI (12 / 26 / 190 / 0 / 1 pass, 5 / 37 / 0 rush)

Griffin played marginally well in the first half of Sunday's game before his protection fell apart in the second half. The Eagles started bringing continual pressure which really threw the offense off kilter. Griffin missed several opportunities to throw for touchdowns on Sunday, overthrowing Andrew Hawkins in the end zone twice and throwing too wide of Terrelle Pryor on the left side of the end zone. Griffin can't take all the blame on his interception as his pass to Corey Coleman appeared on target before a defender tipped it into the air, leading to the turnover. Center Cameron Erving's bad snap took place with 10:54 remaining in the third quarter and from that point on the Browns really struggled to move the ball. Griffin rarely had much time to throw, resulting in several rushed off target pass attempts. He did look quick as ever rushing the ball, but he injured his left shoulder on a play that could have been avoided in the fourth quarter. He lowered his shoulder into a Philadelphia defender while heading out of bounds, a move which did not look necessary. Josh McCown was seen warming up on the sidelines, but Griffin did return for the Browns' final possession of the game, only to hand off to Isaiah Crowell three times.

Browns | 'All signs point' to RG3 starting (Mon Dec 5, 12:02 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and 'all signs point' to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Our View: Never say never, and Griffin looks to be on track to play again for the Browns. This could be a four-game audition for Griffin as the Browns are just looking to the future. If he impresses, there's a chance he could stick around in 2017. He has a cap hit of $9.25 million next year with only $1.75 million in dead money.

Browns | Robert Griffin will get extended look (Tue Nov 29, 08:03 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will keep the starting job for the remainder of the season 'once he gets back in there,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Our View: At one point it seemed like Griffin had played his final snap for the Browns. Then, rookie QB Cody Kessler was concussed and it opened the door for Griffin to return. He's a player who could have fantasy value due to the talent around him. Add Griffin to your roster if you can burn a spot on your bench with a 'lottery ticket' player.

Browns | Robert Griffin cleared for contact (Tue Nov 29, 11:43 AM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Our View: Griffin should be added off the waiver wire if you've got a spot on your bench. If he gets the starting nod, Griffin could post QB1 numbers due to his rushing ability and the talent around him with pass-catchers like Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman.

Browns | Cleveland hopes Robert Griffin can return (Sun Nov 27, 11:16 AM) - The Cleveland Browns are hoping QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) can start again this season once he is cleared to play, according to sources. Griffin may stay on the sidelines if QB Cody Kessler plays well in multiple games.

Our View: Griffin could have some 2QB/Superflex value when he returns because of his running ability and deep passing, which could also help Terrelle Pryor's late season fantasy prospects.

Browns | Robert Griffin III returns to practice (Wed Nov 23, 10:22 AM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23, and has returned to practice.

Our View: Just a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like Griffin was not going to play another snap for the Browns. Now, with Cody Kessler concussed for the second time in a month, Griffin may be back under center before the season is out.
