|Browns make it official, RGIII to start -- Thu Dec 8 10:30 am --|
The QB rotation continues
|Robert Griffin III will get another chance to prove he can be the Browns' quarterback of the future and bust the Browns' 0-12 slump.
On Thursday, the Browns named him the starter for Sunday's game against the 4-7-1 Bengals. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FF Today's Take: This was the expectation all along but now it's official. The Browns have yet to win a game this season and their quarterback play has been barely worth considering in two-QB leagues. The Bengals have given up the 10th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

FF Today's Take: The Browns have yet to name a starting QB for their game against the Bengals, however barring a setback it appears that RGIII will get the nod over Josh McCown and Cody Kessler. Griffin was cleared for contact last week during the team's bye.

QB takes part in non contact drills Wednesday
|CLEVELAND, Ohio -Robert Griffin III took another major step back to the playing field Wednesday when he was designated for return from injured reserve.
He practiced Wednesday for the first time since fracturing the coracoid bone in his left shoulder during the season opener at Philadelphia.
FF Today's Take: Robert Griffin III could find himself quarterbacking an improved offense as the Browns evaluate the future of the franchise. RG3 hasn't been cleared for contact yet but there is a real chance that he could return to give Terrelle Pryor, Corey Coleman and Gary Barnidge a boost leading into the fantasy playoffs.

Kessler in concussion protocol
|Josh McCown will have a chance to prevent the Browns from going 0-16 when he starts Sunday against the red-hot New York Giants at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Hue Jackson named McCown the starter on Monday with rookie Cody Kessler in the concussion protocol with his second concussion in 29 days. It will mark McCown's third start of the season. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FF Today's Take: McCown may start but he's no guaranteed to take every snap at quarterback making him a QB2 at best against the Giants. Robert Griffin III will start practicing this week, but hasn't yet been cleared for full contact. The Browns have yet to win a game this season.
| Browns' RG3 cleared for non-contract drills -- Wed Nov 16 1:19 pm --|
Will not practice this week
|BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Robert Griffin III's next comeback isn't quite ready to begin.
Cleveland's quarterback, who broke a bone in his left shoulder while making his debut with the Browns in the season opener, has been cleared for non-contact drills and could play again this season.
FF Today's Take: Robert Griffin III (shoulder) may be able to come back near the end of the season but Cleveland will continue to start Cody Kessler in the interim. Kessler was benched in the second half last week and won't be worth starting in Week 11 versus Pittsburgh.
| RGII out at least 8 weeks, shoulder injury -- Mon Sep 12 3:00 pm --|
No surgery required at this time
|Robert Griffin III is out at least 8 games with a broken bone in his left shoulder suffered during Sunday's 29-10 loss to the Eagles, the Browns announced Monday. No surgery is required at this time, but he suffered a fractured coracoid bone. It will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FF Today's Take: Josh McCown will start Week 2 against Baltimore. Griffin went 12-26 for 190 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT against the Eagles in Week 1. As expected the Browns struggled on offense as they attempt re-tool the franchise. Much like Griffin, McCown is nothing more than a QB2 moving forward.
