Kirk Cousins will get the call against the Cleveland Browns, and NFL.com's Albert Breer reports that Griffin will be inactive. Rex Grossman will be the No. 2.

All of Sunday morning's injury news will pale in comparison to the news we learned Saturday night: Robert Griffin III will not start for the Washington Redskins.

Kirk Cousins will get the call against the Cleveland Browns, and NFL.com's Albert Breer reports that Griffin will be inactive. Rex Grossman will be the No. 2.

Here are the other injury stories we're tracking this morning.

1. NFL.com's Kimberley Jones reports Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White (knee) will face the New York Giants despite not practicing all week. Strong safety William Moore (hamstring) is inactive.

2. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne will not play. He is recovering from a concussion.

3. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs (biceps) will suit up against the Denver Broncos, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. Ray Lewis was not activated off the injured reserve list this week, so he's out.

4. St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola (heel) will return to the field to face the Minnesota Vikings. He's officially active.

5. The Baltimore Ravens are without linebacker Jameel McClain (neck), Dannell Ellerbe (ankle), and safety Bernard Pollard (ribs) against the Denver Broncos. Giddy up, Peyton Manning.

6. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) is active against the Chicago Bears, as expected.

7. The Bears are without five key defenders: defensive tackle Henry Melton, linebacker Brian Urlacher, linebacker Geno Hayes, cornerback Tim Jennings, and defensive end Shea McClellin are all out.
