Browns to stick with Robert Griffin III at QB

Hue Jackson wanted to see a jump in performance from Robert Griffin III.

After watching film of a 33-13 loss to the Bills, the Browns head coach determined it was enough to stick with the quarterback against the Chargers on Saturday.

“We’ll go out there and give him another opportunity to take a swing at it,” Jackson said Monday on a conference call with reporters.

“I think there was some improvement, there was some things that I thought he did much better when you go back and watch the tape from the first time he played,” he said, “and hopefully there can be another jump in this next game. But I think he needs to go play and he needs to play well.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Griffin, who started his second straight game Sunday, passed for 196 yards and ran for another 48 yards and a touchdown after missing three months because of a broken bone in his shoulder. Jackson also made it clear he won't hesitate to play rookie quarterback Cody Kessler, who started eight games this season while Griffin and veteran signal caller Josh McCown dealt with injuries.
