“It’s better,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “You can see that he’s more comfortable. He was improved over yesterday.”
Griffin moved well during the brief period of practice open to media. He planted on his injured right leg and threw a variety of passes, as he did Wednesday. He also simulated stretch handoffs during quarterback drills. He favored his sprained knee at times.
He was not made available to reporters Thursday. However, on Wednesday he was optimistic about his chances of playing: “I feel really good about it. It just depends on if I continue to progress the way I am.”
Planning is a challenge
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan helped game plan for Cleveland this week without knowing who will quarterback the Redskins. The team is waiting to see how much Griffin progresses before determining whether he or fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will start.
“It’s a little bit of a challenge because I can’t lock in as much as I usually do to exactly how the order and what I’m trying to attack, so I’ve got to be a little bit more open-minded because there’s a few different directions you could go,” Shanahan said. “But I kind of put myself in check when I start to get a little frustrated with it because I know it’s probably a little more frustrating for them than it is for me.”
“At this point in the year with our players, there’s not a lot of new learning,” he said. “You run your concepts that you’ve been doing. Guys are ready to adjust. It’s not that big of a deal. It depends what you see on game day. I’m ready to adjust to what schemes they’re doing.”View Entire Story
