Cleveland Browns quarterback has Robert Griffin III has been cleared to participate in non-contact play.

Griffin was placed on injured reserve after breaking a bone in his shoulder during the season opener against the Eagles, according to the organization's website. 

It is unclear when Griffin will be eligible to return, but is on the course to return sometime this year, Browns Executive of Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown said. 

“I think today would be premature to make that decision,” head coach Hue Jackson said Monday. “But once he can get back out there and start practicing, then I think there is a window of time in there before we have to do anything.”

The Browns are currently on a winless streak after falling to 0-10 in a Thursday loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
