RG III hopeful...Kolb done for the seasonUNDATED (AP) - Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says he feels the chances are "really good" that he'll be able to play against the Cleveland Browns.
The No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft practiced on his sprained right knee Wednesday as the Redskins returned to the field to prepare for Sunday's game.
Griffin favored his right leg slightly during the portion of practice open to reporters. He was officially listed as limited on the practice report.
Griffin says he "did enough" and that he will try to push the knee Thursday and Friday.
