Redskins’ coach to be more careful with QBASHBURN, Virginia - Mike Shanahan is adjusting his gut when it comes to Robert Griffin III.
The Washington Redskins coach said Wednesday he’s going to be more cautious with his franchise quarterback from now on, to the point that he’s going to make sure that Griffin “never plays if he’s not 100 percent.”
Griffin, the league’s offensive rookie of the year, is recovering from reconstructive surgery after reinjuring his right knee in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Shanahan was criticized for not removing Griffin from the game earlier, especially when Griffin was limping badly after a throwing a touchdown pass in the first quarter.
Shanahan said Wednesday he learns about his players as time goes along and that if “it’s your gut to take somebody out, sometimes it changes from year to year. I know mine does with different players.” AP
