CLEVELAND —Robert Griffin III wont be running wild or throwing passes for the
Redskins. Dashon Goldson Jersey . He can only watch
them. Washingtons electrifying rookie quarterback is inactive for Sundays game
against the Browns, eliminating any chance of him helping his teammates continue
their NFC playoff push. Griffin sprained his right knee last week against
Baltimore, and after days of speculation about his playing status, the Redskins
announced late Saturday night that rookie Kirk Cousins will start. Cousins, who
came off the bench last week against Baltimore after Griffin got hurt, will make
his first career start and veteran Rex Grossman will be Washingtons No. 2 QB.
Grossman has been inactive for every other game this season. Griffin sustained a
mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament when he took a scary hit from
Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata following a 13-yard run late in the fourth
quarter. He was limited in practice all week, but as of Friday it appeared he
might play and coach Mike Shanahan was keeping tight lipped about his young
stars status. The 22-year-old RG3 was one of the first players on the field
Sunday morning. He seemed to be moving well with a brace on his knee. At that
point, it still wasnt official that he would not be inactive, and the Redskins
(7-6) didnt make it known that No. 10 would suit up at all until 90 minutes
before kickoff. The Browns spent all week preparing to face Griffin, who is tied
with New Englands Tom Brady for the league lead in passer rating and who has
dazzled opponents and fans with his speed and arm strength. His absence could be
a break for the Browns (5-8). Cleveland has won three straight games and is
still in the playoff chase after starting the season 0-5. Cousins rallied the
Redskins in the fourth quarter last week, throwing a late touchdown pass and ran
for a 2-point conversion before the Ravens won in overtime. Washington selected
Cousins in the fourth round of Aprils draft. The former Michigan State star was
somewhat of surprise pick because the Redskins had already selected Griffin
after trading several picks to St. Louis to move up to get last seasons Heisman
Trophy winner. Cousins also played earlier this season after Griffin sustained a
concussion against Atlanta. He has completed 7 of 11 passes for 137 yards with
two touchdowns and two interceptions. Joe Montana Jersey .7 (91) to 11.15 (81) in
the Australian Football League grand final on Saturday before 99,683 fans at the
Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Swans, who had just one win and a draw in their
previous 15 games at the ground, prevailed in a game of wild momentum swings. Justin Smith Elite Jersey . Matt Cain took
the mound for his first home start since tossing his gem June 13, and with one
pitch his chances of throwing the Giants fifth consecutive shutout were gone. http://www.47superbowl49ersjerseys.com/joe-montana-jersey
. The coach took over from Fabio Capello three months after the Italian vacated
the job. After a miserable 2010 World Cup performance, a reinvigorated England
squad will march into its Euro 2012 quarterfinal against Italy on Sunday with
confidence. Crabtree Jersey . Canadas Sports Leader
captures the fourth and final major of the year with live coverage of all four
rounds from Thursday, Aug. 9 to Sunday, Aug. 12 on TSN2 and TSN Mobile TV. Anthony Dixon Womens Jersey .J. —The New
Jersey Devils have signed first-round draft pick Stefan Matteau to an
entry-level contract.LEGIONOWO, Poland—Already struggling with its absentees,
Greece was hit by another setback on Sunday ahead of its Euro 2012 game against
the Czech Republic when Giorgos Fotakis pulled out of training with a right
thigh injury. Greece will already be missing two key defenders for Tuesdays
match in Group A in Wroclaw, southern Poland. Sokratis Papastathopoulos is
suspended and Avraam Papadopoulos is out for the rest of the tournament with a
left knee injury. Team officials said the 30-year-old Fotakis was injured
accidentally by a teammate in training, adding that it was too early to tell if
the midfielders injury was serious. Fotakis was expected to feature in coach
Fernando Santos plans for the Czechs. Midfield anchor Costas Katsouranis is
widely tipped to play in defence, just as he did after Papastathopoulos red card
in Fridays 1-1 draw with Poland in the opener. The 2004 European champion
remains reliant on its solid defence, having conceded just five goals in
qualifying. Greece players, meanwhile, made it clear they would not be
underestimating the Czech Republic, despite its opening 4-1 loss to Russia. “The
Czechs are a very good team. I agree (with other teammates) that they are better
than Poland and they will give us a very difficult time,” attaccking midfielder
Sotiris Ninis said. Mario Manningham Jersey. Goalkeeper Michalis
Sifakis indicated that Greece would go on the attack in its next game as it bids
for a place in the quarterfinals. “Weve studied our opponents. We look at the
opener as losing two points as much as earning one. We are now chasing a win on
Tuesday,” Sifakis said after Sundays training. “Russia now has a significant
advantage because of the goals it scored. So the group is open for the three
other teams. What counts for us is to beat the Czechs in the second match.” On
Friday, Santos brought on promising youngsters Kyriakos Papadopoulos in defence
and attacking midfielder Costas Fortounis, after Papastathopoulos was sent off.
The move maintained an attack-minded lineup despite being a goal down, but
forcing Karagounis and Yiannis Maniatis to cover the space in midfield.
Attacking midfielder Yiannis Fetfatzidis, who didnt play on Friday, said he
expected Santos to stick to his tactics used in the second half against Poland.
“Its not a small thing to be at a third successive European Championship,” the
21-year-old Fetfatzidis said. “We could have got three points in the opener but
that didnt happen. I think we will improve and get out of the group.” ’ ’ ’
