Everyone in D.C. is amped up about Robert Griffin III and he’ll make his first appearance in the preseason opener Thursday at Buffalo.
That playing time will be ramped up to the entire first half in the second preseason game and then the starters will play into the third quarter in the third game as nearly all NFL teams do.
“We’re trying to put players in those situations that are game-like situations,” the coach said. “We’ve got everybody on the sideline, we’re playing it just like a game. You try to put a guy like Robert through as many game-type situations as possible, and hopefully it gets him ready a little bit quicker.”
