The Cleveland Browns will close out their 2016 season at Heinz Field on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers and it’s looking more and more like quarterback Robert Griffin III will indeed be their starter in that game.
After sitting out the Browns Wednesday practice due to a concussion that he suffered last week in his team’s win over the San Diego Chargers, Griffin practiced fully on Thursday after being fully cleared by an independent neurologist.
Sitting out Thursday’s practice for the Browns were cornerback Trey Caldwell (hamstring), linebacker Cam Johnson (groin) and tackle Joe Thomas (knee). Being as Thomas has never missed a start during his career, he’ll likely play Sunday against the Steelers. As for Caldwell and Johnson, it’s not looking good for them with one day of practice left.
Limited for the Browns on Thursday were linebacker Dominique Alexander (abdomen, groin), cornerback Joe Haden (neck, groin), long snapper Charley Hughlett (hamstring), running back Duke Johnson (ankle), cornerback Jamar Taylor (groin), and tight end Randall Telfer (ankle, thumb).
It will be interesting to see if Haden winds up playing against the Steelers on Sunday.
Wide receivers Ricardo Louis (thumb) and Terrelle Pryor (finger) both practiced fully on Thursday once again.
