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

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 | CBSSports.com

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.

Robert Griffin III throws for 112 yards on nine passes Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III went 6 for 9 with 112 passing yards while gaining 24 yards on four carries in Monday's preseason game against the Browns.

Griffin had the Redskins moving on the team's first drive, but the offense turned the ball over on a pitch that running back Alfred Morris couldn't handle. Griffin moved the ball with ease again on his second drive, at one point gaining 18 yards on a scramble, before throwing an interception in Cleveland territory. He received one more drive and took the ball all the way down to the one before the offense couldn't convert on fourth down at the goal line.

Griffin did a solid job in his first extended action of the preseason, though he was seen limping slightly at one point after a slide. He's aiming for a bounceback campaign in his second season back from surgery to repair his ACL and LCL.

Robert Griffin III shows improvement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

After a disheartening performance in practice Sunday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made quicker and better decisions Monday, especially in the two-minute drill, reports ESPN.com.

"It was a lot smoother," Griffin said. "We felt in rhythm, getting to the right places with the ball, everybody being in the right place, making the right checks at the line. That's what camp is about. We will have days where it seems up and down. Today was a day we were climbing a lot. It takes repetition. It takes guys being on their stuff."

Offensive coordinator Sean McVay said Griffin's decision-making is improving daily. "Any time you get experience feeling the rush, feeling the soft spots, keeping your eyes downfield, remaining a passer and also knowing when my internal clock goes off ... it's [helpful]."
