Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III hung around after his press conference Wednesday to prank head coach Mike Shanahan as he posed as a member of the media.
Griffin asked Shanahan, "What did you do for New Year’s?”.
Shanahan began to answer before quickly realizing it was Griffin.
"You got me by surprise there,'' Shanahan said, laughing. "I tried to put a good game plan together. I wasn't sure how healthy you were, so it was hard without you calling me.
"You got me good.''
Luckily for the Redskins, Griffin's sprained knee is getting better.
“Each week, I’ve been able to do more,” Griffin said. “Today, I felt a lot better than I did last week, and I mean, that’s all you can ask for at this point.”
Griffin says wearing the knee brace is what makes him limp.
"I know a lot of people talk about the limp with the brace, but any time you wear a brace like that, it's to protect you,'' the quarterback said. "So, it's going to cause a natural limp. ... You're not going to be able bend your knee normally. It restricts your flexion and your extension. It's just to protect the ligaments in there.
"So there will be a natural limp in there. At the same time, you can still generate power."
Griffin and the Redskins play the Seattle Seahawks Sunday in a NFC wild-card matchup.
