                        === Griffin inactive Sunday ===
 
 Cleveland,  OH  (Sports Network)  - Not  only will the  knee injury for Robert
 Griffin  III  keep the Washington  quarterback out  of the starting lineup for
 Sunday's  game  against Cleveland, but the  Redskins rookie has been listed as
 inactive for the contest.
 
 Kirk Cousins will make his first NFL start for the Redskins, while veteran Rex
 Grossman will be the backup.
 
 Griffin  practiced all  week and was listed as questionable on Friday's injury
 report, but was declared out on Saturday. He said on Twitter that the decision
 "was not my own."
 
 Cousins  took over last week against Baltimore after Griffin sustained a Grade
 I  sprain of  the lateral  collateral ligament  in his  right knee  during the
 eventual game-tying drive in the fourth quarter of Washington's 31-28 overtime
 win.
