ASHBURN, Va. -- If Robert Griffin III is "All in for Week 1," whats the status of his backup, Kirk Cousins? "I was trying to get an All in for Week 4 of the Preseason commercial," Cousins said Monday. Actually, Cousins isnt likely to play in the Washington Redskins final preseason game Thursday because of his sprained right foot. He did say theres "no doubt at all" hell be ready for the opener Sept. 9. "I do want to play Thursday, but Id also rather be safe than sorry," Cousins said. "If someone could grant me a wish and tell me I wasnt going to get hurt, or I wasnt going to re-aggravate it, then I would like to get out there." To that end, Cousins was able to poke fun at Griffin, who launched an "All in for Week 1" campaign with a shoe company in his quest to return from major knee surgery. "I could get a T-shirt that says All in for Week 4 of the Preseason. Thats not quite as catchy, and I dont have an endorsement deal with an apparel company," Cousins said. "Maybe someone will sign me now. I dont make enough money to get fined. Maybe Ill get a deal with some off-brand or something that sells at Walmart or something." Griffin was fined $10,000 last week for wearing an "Operation Patience" T-shirt before a preseason game, with the NFL calling it "unauthorized apparel." Also last week, by coincidence, Cousins changed out of a Nebraska T-shirt before addressing reporters in the locker room because Nebraska gear is sponsored by Adidas, while the NFL has a deal with Nike. "Its not worth the risk," Cousins said. Of course, the fact that it was a Nebraska shirt led to more questions, given that Cousins went to Michigan State. It turns out that the shirt was given to him last year by Redskins teammate -- and former Cornhuskers defensive back -- DeJon Gomes after Cousins lost a friendly bet. "I wake up in the morning, usually 6 a.m., and my rooms dark, and I just throw something on," Cousins said. "Im cheap. I just kept it. I like free clothes. ... Adidas made a comfortable shirt. If it didnt say Nebraska, it would be even better." Cousins was limited in practice Monday and said he was still favouring the foot. He said he could play with a painkilling injection, but theres no point in doing that for a preseason game. "At most I think this is a two-week injury," he said. "And I injured it three weeks before the opening day, so Ive got a lot of time to get healthy." Griffin is sitting out the entire preseason and hopes to get clearance from his doctor to play in Week 1. He is not scheduled to speak to reporters this week. Matt Kemp Jersey .

He certainly did that on Sunday. Browns three-run pinch-hit home run broke open a close game and the New York Mets beat Arizona 9-5 on Sunday. "Whenever you get a chance you try to do something productive, whether its moving a runner over, walking, bunting," he said, "whatever plus it can be to keep me here a little bit longer." Jonathan Niese (4-6), in his first start since June 20, came off the disabled list to go six innings, giving up four runs and seven hits in his first win since May 16. "I thought he got better as the game went on," New York manager Terry Collins said. "You know its been awhile since hes been out there. I was very happy with the way he threw." The Mets took two of three from the Diamondbacks and have won five of six. The Mets scored four unearned runs in the first, three on first baseman Paul Goldschmidts fielding error with two outs and the bases loaded. Aaron Hills three-run home run cut the lead to 5-4 in the third, but Browns three-run shot made it a four-run game in the seventh. Arizonas Cody Ross was carted off the field in the first inning with a dislocated right hip. Ross stumbled as he approached first base while trying to beat out a grounder, then fell to the ground. He was grimacing and grabbing his right leg as he was loaded onto the cart. After X-rays, the team announced he had dislocated his hip. "They took him to the hospital and put it back in," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "They are doing more tests on him to make sure there is no fracture and just evaluate the damage. It is possible he could have surgery, but they have not determined that yet." The Mets Wilmer Flores hit his first career home run, a solo shot off Heath Bell in the ninth. Niese, out for seven weeks with a partially torn rotator cuff, struck out five and walked one. He called it "a relief" to be back, throwing without pain for the first time since the first few weeks of the season. "It feels like good," Niese said. "Theres nothing like pitching in the big leagues. Its good to get back out there with all the guys." The Diamondbacks Zeke Spruill (0-2), in his second major league start, gave up a one-out single to Juan Lagares in the first, then walked Daniel Murphy and Ike Davis to load the bases.dddddddddddd Mike Baxters grounder to first deflected off Goldschmidts glove and all three runners scored. Anthony Reckers double brought in the fourth run. It was the fifth error of the season for the normally reliable Goldschmidt. "I just missed it. I was in position right there.," he said. "It is a play I make every time and right there I didnt. It hurt us, it hurt the bullpen. We had to get the bullpen in early and Zeke had to come out early due to no fault of his own. " After Hills RBI double in the first cut it to 4-1, the Mets had runners at first and second with one out in the third when Omar Quintanilla singled to centre. One run scored, but Cliff Penningtons relay throw from centre fielder A.J. Pollock cut down Baxter trying to score from first. Pollock led off the Arizona fourth with a single, then Goldschmidt drew a one-out walk to bring up Hill, whose shot to left cut New Yorks lead to 5-4. In the seventh, Davis drew a one-out walk -- the ninth consecutive time hed reached base -- and Flores singled. Will Harris relieved Joe Thatcher and Browns second pinch-hit homer of the season made it 8-4. Spruill allowed five runs, just one earned, and six hits in three innings. He walked two.
