RG3 Slowed By Knee Brace

Redskins_Griffin_2013Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon pointed out what others outside the organization have said the past two weeks — Robert Griffin III is not himself.

“Robert obviously can’t run as fast as he did last year because of his knee brace and his knee” Garcon told ESPN980 Radio on Tuesday. “But it’s the same offense to be honest with you. It’s nothing different. It hasn’t changed at all.”

What has changed is the number of runs that Griffin has attempted. The star quarterback has carried the ball nine times in the first two games combined but none off either a designed run or the zone-read option.

“Everyone’s going to the lack of QB runs” Griffin said Sunday. “If teams will give us the QB runs then we’ll take it. If they’re not giving it to us then we can’t just run those plays.”

Garcon said the brace on his surgically repaired right knee is to blame.
