Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is going to drag out Robert Griffin III's status for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns as long as humanly possible.

"I don't know yet," Shanahan said when asked Thursday who would start at quarterback. "We'll get a chance to see how Robert progresses during the week, and we'll make a decision probably on game day."

Keep in mind that Shanahan admitted Wednesday that he would delay announcing the decision in order to keep the Browns guessing.

Based on Griffin's improved practice Thursday while nursing a lateral collateral ligament sprain, it's not hard to guess where this is going. Griffin is looking good in practice; it's hard to imagine he'll sit on Sunday.
