Browns Will Re-Evaluate Robert Griffin’s Shoulder This Week To See If He Needs Surgery


Browns HC Hue Jackson told reporters on Monday that QB Robert Griffin‘s shoulder will be re-evaluated this week as scheduled to see where he’s at in terms of his recovery, per Nate Ulrich.

This will could determine whether RGIII will need to undergo surgery on his shoulder and whether he could return at some point later on in the year, per Scott Petrick.

Last we heard, ESPNs’ Adam Schefter reported that RGIII is expected to miss 10-12 weeks his 2016 season could very well be over.

The Browns wasted little time placing him on injured reserve.

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.

After one game, Griffin has 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 whether Griffin will be back at all this year as the news is available.
