Jay Gruden, Robert Griffin III insist there's progress
by Larry Hartstein |

Despite Robert Griffin III's preseason struggles, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told the third-year quarterback "is further along than it appears he is. Based on his production [Saturday], a lot of people would say he’s not further along.

"He’s a lot further along than he gets credit for. All you have to look at is practice and game tape, and it wasn’t very good from anybody. But I’ve seen him practice, and I’ve seen him come a long way. [Saturday] didn’t show how much he’s come forward."

Griffin went 5 of 8 for 20 yards with an interception against the Ravens, posting a 27.1 passer rating.

Griffin said "there will be overreactions all over the place. It's our job to make sure we stay cool, calm and collected and keep fighting on."

The struggles continue for Robert Griffin Saturday
by Igor Mello |

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin continued his struggles Saturday night against the Ravens in Baltimore.

Griffin was intercepted by Terrence Brooks on his first pass attempt before a defensive pass interference call wiped out the play. A few plays later he was sacked by Brooks. On the ensuing drive, he mishandled a snap and recovered his own fumble.

Griffin was intercepted by C.J. Mosley on his first pass attempt after halftime, ending a rough night. He completed 5 of 8 passes for 20 yards, with no touchdowns, one interception and three sacks. He registered a 27.1 passer rating.

Robert Griffin III knows he must improve at avoiding hits
by Larry Hartstein |

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who rushed four times for 24 yards Monday night, acknowledged he must do a better job of avoiding hits at the end of his runs. On one play, he got hit twice near Cleveland's sideline.

"I got caught in an awkward situation on the first one and I tried to slide. It was a bad attempt at a slide," Griffin told USA Today. "And then on the sideline, on their sideline, I was just in a situation there where I thought I was going to be able to get out of bounds, and (a defender) was running out of bounds with (tight end) Jordan Reed, and he came back in, so I had to protect myself, so that's why I put my shoulder down. And then my third attempt was very successful. I got down and got out of harm's way."

While Griffin said his thigh bruise is "nothing to worry about," he said he has to improve the way he slides at the end of plays.

"It's going to continually be a work in progress," he told the paper. "I'm going to keep focusing on getting down in those situations, knowing when to fight for the extra yards and when not to," he said. "So the fans have nothing to worry about there. I'll keep getting better at that, I promise you that."

Coach Jay Gruden said it's an issue "we have to continue to talk to him about — how important he is to this team and this franchise. When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself. He's had a habit in his career of being able to get himself out of those predicaments with his speed and his athleticism. But here it's a 16-game season, with the great talent across the league in the NFL, (and) he's got to pick his shots and learn how to get down a little bit better."

Robert Griffin III suffers minor thigh bruise Monday
by R.J. White |

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a minor thigh contusion in Monday's 24-23 win over the Browns, but head coach Jay Gruden said that he'll be fine, the Washington Post reports.

Griffin posted solid all-around numbers but took a number of hits in the game as he fought to extra yardage. The one time he was seen limping on the field was after a quarterback slide. The injury shouldn't affect his status for the next preseason game.
