Browns Reportedly Place Robert Griffin III on Injured Reserve

September 12th, 2016

The Cleveland Browns are going to be without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III for at least the next eight weeks after the team placed him on injured reserve with a fractured bone in his non-throwing shoulder on Monday.

Griffin III took a hit to the shoulder during a late-game scramble in Cleveland's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After the game, it was reported he would undergo an MRI. Unfortunately, the result of said MRI now indicates that he's going to be out 3-4 months. 

With Griffin III now injured, the Browns will have to turn to backup Josh McCown, likely for the remainder of the season.
