Griffin back in starting lineup for winless Browns
BEREA, OHIO | Robert Griffin III is getting his second shot with the Browns.
Griffin, who hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder in the Sept. 11 season opener at Philadelphia, will start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals as the winless Browns (0-12) try to avoid becoming the second team in NFL history to go 0-16.
Griffin hasn’t played since breaking a bone in his left shoulder in Cleveland’s 29-10 loss to the Eagles nearly three months ago.
He was recently cleared for contact and coach Hue Jackson selected him to be the starter following two practices after Cleveland’s bye week.
