An important four-week checkup this week revealed that Robert Griffin III's fractured coracoid bone in his left shoulder is showing signs of healing, sources said Tuesday, and doctors believe the Cleveland Browns quarterback, barring any setbacks, will not require surgery.
After Griffin originally suffered the injury in September, the team feared he would miss the remainder of season if surgery was required. The Browns placed him on the Injured Reserve with designation to return, hoping proper healing could mean an earlier comeback.

The IR designation means Griffin still wouldn't be able to return to action until Nov. 10 against Baltimore. However, it is still to be determined whether that is a realistic timeline in terms of the healing process. A source close to the player says Griffin plans to be extremely patient with his return, and has not placed a timeline on when he'll be back, the story said.

Robert Griffin III - Week 1 vs. Philadelphia
Robert Griffin III took a year off as Washington's No. 3 quarterback last year, and now he's ready to try and recapture the magic of his rookie season. He has a decent situation in Cleveland with rookie Corey Coleman and the athletic QB-turned-WR Terrelle Pryor. Both guys can stretch the field, so expect RGIII to take some deep shots down the field.
For the most part, Griffin played well in the preseason, but we all know it's the regular season that counts. It's difficult to trust any Browns quarterback these days, but there's enough promise in RGIII to make him an interesting play in Week 1. He even has a great matchup against Philadelphia.
Griffin is unpredictable, which is why he should be viewed as a QB2 option this week.
