Redskins Say Play-Calling Won’t Change, With Or Without RG3 - Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan stated that he will not change his play-calling to protect Robert Griffin III, coming off a Week 5 concussion. “If I went into a game thinking I had to call a different game because, if he got hit, he’s going to be hurt, then he shouldn’t be playing,” Shanahan said. “If he’s cleared, he’s cleared, he’s okay. That’s my assumption.” Griffin was officially limited in Thursday’s practice, but he took 75-80 percent of his normal snaps. Setback free, RGIII remains on track to start against the Vikings in week 6 on Sunday. Read More Here!
