Robert Griffin III can finish what he started. Cleveland’s quarterback was cleared from concussion protocol on Thursday and will likely start Sunday at Pittsburgh in the season finale. Griffin was checked by an independent neurologist – the last step in the NFL’s procedure on head injuries – and will practice as the Browns (1-14) prepare to face a Steelers team that has locked up a playoff spot and will rest starters, including stars Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.
