Shutdown Corner

Washington Redskins first round quarterback Robert Griffin is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. With the Redskins needing to win to keep their playoff hopes alive, the club will turn to fourth round pick Kirk Cousins, who will be making his first NFL start on Sunday.

Key injured players who will be playing on Sunday include Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and cornerback Jimmy Smith and St. Louis Rams middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, cornerback Cortland Finnegan and wide receiver Danny Amendola, and Denver Broncos linebacker (and leader in tackles and interceptions) Wesley Woodyard. Broncos right guard Chris Kuper is inactive after being listed as "questionable" on the team's final injury report of the week.
