The Washington Redskins players have been informed that backup rookie QB Kirk Cousins will start at Cleveland in place of the injured Robert Griffin III, who practiced in a limited capacity this week, but was unable to earn medical clearance after it was determined that he could further damage his knee by playing against the Browns with the teams’ playoff hopes on the line, as they have to win-out to have any chance of making it to the postseason.

Falcons WR Roddy White (knee, questionable) will play against the Giants.
