Griffin is expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks because of his shoulder injury, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Griffin was placed on the injured reserve list this week, which was going to keep him out for eight games already, but the new timeline for his recovery could sideline him for the entire season. Josh McCown will get the start Sunday against the Ravens, and he is likely to hold onto the starting job as long as he stays healthy.

Griffin lands on IR after just one game with the Browns, as a hard hit taken while rushing toward the sideline Sunday left significant damage in his non-throwing shoulder. The oft-injured signal-caller does not need surgery and will be evaluated in about a month, but given his injury designation, Griffin now must miss a minimum of eight games and could be out even longer. With Griffin sidelined for the foreseeable future, Josh McCown figures to be promoted to Cleveland's starting quarterback position, with rookie Cody Kessler likely his backup.

Griffin underwent an MRI on his injured, non-throwing shoulder Monday and was revealed to have suffered potentially serious damage. As a result, it's likely that Griffin will be ruled out for some time looking ahead, although a definitive timetable has yet to surface. With that being the expectation, backup Josh McCown appears destined to reclaim the Browns' starting quarterback job.

Griffin suffered a sprained shoulder in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and while he admitted after the game that he is in pain, he also said he expects to be available for Week 2 against the Ravens. He started his season on the wrong foot, completing just 12 of 26 passes for 190 yards, with five carries for another 37 yards, an interception and no touchdowns. Despite suffering the injury, Griffin came back out for the meaningless final drive of Sunday's game. If he isn't available next week, Josh McCown would be next in line to start.
