BEREA - Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron continues to game plan for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who appears to be on track to start Sunday's game at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Griffin has now put in two straight days of limited participation. He probably won't be 100 percent because of a sprained right knee, but that doesn't ease Jauron's concern.
"Every week in our league we're playing gifted athletes," Jauron said. "He happens to be more gifted than most. We have to play as fast as we can possibly play, otherwise we don't have any chance at all. You have to be playing at top speed, because they're going to be playing at top speed.
"Our message isn't any different than it normally is. It's just that it's directed at different players with different schemes. You have to play awfully fast to have any success in this league."
There's still a possibility that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan will split time between Griffin and backup Kirk Cousins. Although the two have different styles, Jauron says his preparation doesn't change.
"They run a conventional offense with RG III, so you're looking at their offense plus the other stuff he (Griffin) adds to it," Jauron said. "While you're preparing, you're preparing for both. Whoever they have in at quarterback they'll still run some stuff they do with RG III. We're preparing for RG III to be out there."
STILL A FORCE: Redskins middle linebacker London Fletcher is still playing well in his 15th season. The 37-year-old Fletcher played with the Bills and Rams before joining the Redskins in 2007.
"He's been around forever. He's like a dinosaur," Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress said of the John Carroll University product. "I can remember competing against him on three different teams back when he had three different names on the back of his jersey.
"It's amazing a guy playing that position can still be as effective as he is. You see his passion for the game. He's truly the quarterback on that side of the ball. He's still playing at a high level."
EASY SELL: It didn't take much to convince Browns receiver Josh Gordon that Baylor University was the college for him. All it took was one recruiting trip to watch Griffin play.
"The reason why I committed to Baylor was in my senior year of high school I watched him play against Wake Forest," Gordon said. "I was standing on the sideline, and he did kind of like a Reggie Bush move, and the guy dove out of bounds and missed him. I hadn't seen a quarterback that explosive and that fast around the corner since Michael Vick."
HELPING HAND: The Browns will host their annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve "Touchdown for Tots" collection during Sunday's game. Fans are encouraged to make a financial donation or donate a new toy.
INJURY REPORT: Receiver Joshua Cribbs (knee), defensive end Juqua Parker (knee) and offensive tackle Joe Thomas (back) were limited.
Fletcher, who didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, was limited Thursday.
