ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Look for Robert Griffin III to start running again.
The Washington Redskins quarterback said Wednesday that he might start running the ball more to help give his team a much-needed spark after an 0-2 start.
Griffin has carried the ball only nine times in two games, and he’s yet to run the ball out of the zone-read, the type of play that befuddled defenses and helped him set a rookie QB rushing record with 815 yards a year ago.
Griffin said he isn’t hindered by the brace on his right knee, a visible reminder of his offseason knee surgery. Teammate Pierre Garcon says it’s “common sense” that the knee brace would slow Griffin down, and Griffin responded by jokingly challenging Garcon to a race.
The Redskins play Detroit on Sunday.
