Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III debuted a new hairstyle on Monday during his press conference. With the new braids came the same attitude of a player who is ready to return to action and have the ball in his hands. In fact, RG3 even guaranteed that he will play in the first game of the regular season.
“There’s no doubt I’m playing Week 1,” he said, via Eye on Football. “That’s the way I feel about it.”
Griffin said he is no longer feeling any soreness after recovering from the second reconstructive knee surgery of his career. However, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has all but ruled out the possibility of him playing in the preseason. Despite the fact that RG3 feels healthy, Shanahan and his staff are sticking to their initial timeline. Griffin was candid in saying he doesn’t agree with that.
