Vikings vs. Redskins: With RG3, Washington Has a Chance to Compete Right Now


By (NFC East Lead Writer) on October 14, 2012

For those who concluded that the Washington Redskins' season was over the moment Brian Orakpo went down for the season—and yes, yours truly is guilty—it might soon be time to eat crow.
The Redskins continue to compete every single week, which is more than we can say for any of their NFC East rivals. They're 3-3 and now tied for second place in the division, but all three of those losses came in the final moments and against solid teams.

Redskins-Vikings: For Robert Griffin III, a touchdown run for the ages

By , Monday, October 15, 3:48 AM

It was a run that altered the molecular structure of everything in its path. As the burgundy blur sped by, linemen became mere spectators. Potential pass-targets became downfield blockers. Nervous fans suddenly became screaming bundles of delirium. And the shouts from the Washington Redskins’ sideline, the ones Robert Griffin III heard as he sprinted by, morphed from “Slide! Slide! Slide!” to “Go! Go! Go!”
By the time Griffin finished outrunning the entire Minnesota Vikings’ defense, crossed the goal line and leaped into the FedEx Field stands for a few awkward moments, he had also altered the trajectory of the game and quite possibly the Redskins’ season.

RGIII Update


Robert Griffin III practices without difficulties

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that quarterback Robert Griffin III didn’t appear to have any setbacks and went through practice without problems Thursday.
Griffin will be evaluated by team doctors before he is cleared to practice Friday. Griffin still hasn’t been cleared for Sunday’s game, Shanahan said.
The quarterback took 75-80 percent of the snaps in Thursday’s practice rather than his usual 85 percent.  
 ”He’s been great in practice this week,” Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said of Griffin. Kyle Shanahan said he expects the quarterback to be able to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
“Sounds like he’s going to be alright,” he said.
Shanahan said his play calling won’t change Sunday. If Griffin can play, he won’t be limited, he said.
“If I went into a game thinking I had to call it a different way because he might get hurt, then he doesn’t need to be playing,” the coordinator said.
Cornerback Cedric Griffin (hamstring) was limited in practice and defensive end Doug Worthington (calf) did not practice.
