According to Rich Tandler of CSNWashington.com, Redskins’ head coach Mike Shanahan told the NFL Network that quarterback Robert Griffin III won’t play until he’s “100 percent.”  He also stated that they’re preparing for him to possibly not be ready for the regular season opener. Speaking at the NFL meetings in Phoenix, Shanahan said that backup Kirk Cousins will take all of the offseason reps while Griffin will be taking “mental reps”. Cousins, a second-year player like Griffin, started one game and came in for an injured Griffin in three other games. Addressing concerns that the read option offense that the Redskins run makes the quarterback vulnerable to injury, Shanahan said that the offense itself does not hurt quarterbacks. He did say, however, that Griffin needs to learn to protect himself by sliding rather than taking a hit. Shanahan said that Griffin is well aware of the need to slide. Until training camp comes around and we can see how RG3 looks, I don’t believe he’ll be ready in time for week one.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
