Robert Griffin QB WAS 10 Days14 Comments

Griffin completed 29-of-37 passes for 267 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's 17-6 loss at Houston. He rushed for just two yards on three carries, and lost a fumble on a botched handoff attempt.

Griffin was sacked three times, and under a lot of pressure, so it's not entirely surprising that he failed to generate much scoring. On the flip side, Griffin has enough talent around him to at least score an offensive touchdown. He should see his numbers improve in Week 2, as he'll head home to take on Jacksonville, which allowed 322 yards and two touchdowns to Nick Foles on Sunday.

Griffin is among the key players Washington is slated to hold out of Thursday's preseason finale against the Bucs, the Washington Post reports.

The report indicates that Kirk Cousins will suit up, but is only expected to play in the event of an injury. Meanwhile, third-string QB Colt McCoy will draw the start for Washington, while Griffin will rest, with keeping him healthy in advance of Week 1 a priority for the team.

Head Coach Jay Gruden attributes Griffin's preseason struggles to his lack of comfort in the new offense, the Washington Post reports. Gruden remains confident Griffin will improve with more practice and repetitions.

While Griffin has struggled this preseason it's hard to put a lot of faith in the numbers. Teams typically don't unleash the entire playbook until Week 1. The Redskins offense has play makers at every position.

Griffin suffered a thigh contusion in Monday's preseason game, but the ailment isn't expected to be serious, Todd Dybas of the Washington Times reports.

Griffin took his fair share of hits Monday, as he was sacked once and carried the ball four times for 24 yards. The 24-year-old managed to complete 6-of-8 passes for 112 yards as well, and threw one interception on the evening. Once again, the main story with RGIII was his inability to protect himself from absorbing hits, so his health and stability will continue to be of concern for fantasy owners that draft him. After the game, Griffin insisted that he was fine from a health standpoint, so it seems likely he'll suit up for the Saturday exhibition game against the Ravens, despite the short turnaround.

Baylor coach Art Briles said he thought Robert Griffin III rushed back from his knee reconstruction last season.

"The thing about ACLs: I've always thought they take a complete year to get over. And I think he rushed himself a little bit," Briles said. "So I think this year, I do think we'll see a very healthy RGIII." The onslaught of positivity continues. All indication point to a bounce-back season for RGIII.

Robert Griffin III will get in more work with quarterback guru Terry Shea before training camp begins.

Griffin worked with Shea on his fundamentals earlier in this offseason, and reportedly showed improved mechanics during spring practices. This session will be a "tune-up" to ensure the changes stick. Griffin is poised for a monster bounce-back this season. He is a nice value pick late in the sixth-round.

Redskins OC Sean McVay said Robert Griffin III "looks like his exactly what he was in the 2012 season."

"I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you," McVay continued. "So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive." The knee brace may have played some role, but Griffin's lack of explosiveness last season had much more to do with rushing back from knee surgery. Neither of those problems will be an issue this season, however. Griffin is poised for a bounce-back campaign.

Robert Griffin III said there are no longer any "ulterior motives" in the Redskins' organization.

"What I think is going to help us most this year is that everybody in that building is going to be for us being successful and for us winning," Griffin said. That unveiled jab at former-coach Mike Shanahan was quickly followed by Griffin saying new coach Jay Gruden "has been phenomenal." The feel-good factor is sky high in Washington right now, but that feeling will dissipate quickly if Washington's bottom-five defense does not make a significant improvement this time around.
