Posted August 08, 2012 on AP on Fox
Looking forward to making his preseason debut, Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III revealed he has one apprehension. Griffin joked he would prefer not getting hit on Thursday, when the Redskins travel to play the Buffalo Bills. Good luck with that, because the Bills high-priced, retooled Mario Williams-led defensive line has a much different intention in making its own debut. Williams has already warned Griffin that he's looking forward to going after him. Though the starters for each team are expected to get no more than a couple of series, their cameo appearances come with much anticipation. Griffin, the No. 2 pick in the draft, is the fresh face of the Redskins. The Bills' fortunes might finally be looking up, too, following Williams' arrival in free agency.
