Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that doctors have cleared QB Robert Griffin III to return to the practice field on Wednesday.
According to Anderson, the Browns are now determining what the next steps will be for RGIII to return.
On Monday, Browns executive VP Sashi Brown mentioned that RGIII was on pace to be ready to play at some point this year but it will be up to HC Hue Jackson if he returns to the active roster.
Griffin suffered a fractured coracoid bone but he was able to avoid surgery and indications have been that he was getting closer to a return.
Griffin, 26, signed RGIII to a two-year, $15 million contract that includes $6.75 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2016 season.
The Browns will face a decision regarding Griffin next March, as he has a $750,000 roster bonus at that point. If the Browns pick up his bonus, RGIII would be paid a $6 million base salary with $750,000 more being available in per-game bonuses.
This season, Griffin has appeared in one game thrown for 190 yards while completing 12 of 26 pass attempts (46.15 percent) to go along with no touchdowns and an interception. He added another 37 yards rushing for the Browns during the game.
We’ll have more regarding Griffin’s return as the news is available.
