Found December 28, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
Due to quarterback Robert Griffin III’s knee injury, the Washington Redskins developed a game plan that included more pocket passing and almost no running against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, this weekend during the team’s pivotal matchup against the Dallas Cowboys Griffin said he expects to have more freedom to play his game, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “The knee is fine. Whatever I feel like I can do on that day, I will,” said Griffin, who on Wednesday was voted to his first Pro Bowl. “I’ll be able to do more, to answer your question. I won’t dodge it. I’ll be able to do more against the Cowboys than Philly, but we’ll see how that goes.” Griffin continues to say that he’s not limited physically by the knee injury. Coach Mike Shanahan acknowledged the more conservative approach against the Eagles. Considering the importance of Sunday’s game we are likely to see the dynamic Griffin we’ve seen over much of the season.
