Report: Robert Griffin III to miss 10-12 weeks, could be done for season
Cleveland Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III will be eligible to return to practice in eight weeks, but it is starting to sound more and more like we won’t see him again until 2017.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the timeline for Griffin’s recovery from a broken bone in his shoulder could now be up to 12 weeks.
Browns QB Robert Griffin III now expected to miss 10-12 weeks with shoulder injury, per sources, which means his season could well be over.

Griffin suffered the injury after taking a hard hit (video here) in Cleveland’s Week 1 loss against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team chose to place him on short-term IR rather than season-ending IR, but that could change if RG3’s recovery looks like it is going to be slow.
