Kurtzke will reportedly continue monitoring Griffin until he is cleared for action following the concussion he suffered in Week 2 of the preseason against the Detroit Lions.
This suspicious development is just the last in a long line of suspicious developments that have followed RG3 this summer. The team had originally cleared him to play almost immediately following his sack-riddled Week 2 performance, and head coach Jay Gruden staunchly stuck up for him as his starter that same week. Griffin practiced all week leading up to Week 3 before Kurtzke pulled him off the field at the last minute.

After this latest development, it seems clear that is most certainly the case.
A former soccer player, now a coach with the Cosmos, also took to Twitter, blasting Kurtze:
