RGIII practices on limited basis

If Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III gets to make the final call whether he plays in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, there's little doubt No. 10 will be behind center at Browns Stadium.

"I feel like I can play through any injury," Griffin said Wednesday. "Does that mean I'll play on Sunday? We'll see."

The Redskins would start rookie backup Kurt Cousins, who led Washington to an overtime victory last week, if Griffin's sprained knee -- a Grade 1 sprain of the lateral collateral ligament -- keeps him on the sideline.

"I've got better every day. Sunday night I thought there was no chance I could play next week," Griffin said.

Washington has won four consecutive games to reach 7-6, second in the NFC East behind the New York Giants (8-6).

Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that Griffin was "definitely not" ruled out.

Earlier in the day, Griffin was limited in practice and moved with a limp. He has mild swelling, according to Shanahan, and is receiving treatment several times a day.

The Redskins also start a rookie at running back -- Alfred Morris, who has more than 1,200 rushing yards entering Week 15 -- and he'd take on a larger role if Cousins is the starter.

"Both of tehm will have a game plan," said Shanahan, "and obviously Robert can do some things in the running game that Kirk can't."

Griffin is first in the NFL in rushing among quarterbacks. He has 748 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 6.7 yards per carry.
