Robert Griffin III on IR with shoulder fracture

The Cleveland Browns won’t see Robert Griffin III on the field any time soon. He was placed on the IR on Monday after suffering a shoulder fracture, per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

This is a huge blow to a franchise that had hoped RG3 would be the answer to the ever-present quarterback conundrum it has faced since 1999.

Head coach Hue Jackson issued the following statement on Monday:

Griffin III did have a really rough outing in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles, completing 12-of-26 passes for just 190 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.

Now it will be up to veteran Josh McCown, who led the team to a 1-7 record in the eight games he started last year.
