RICHMOND, Va. — The Redskins wrapped up their final full practice before Thursday’s preseason opener, and it wasn’t the toughest of practices. Robert Griffin III will start at Cleveland on Thursday and it’s expected that he will play about a quarter along with the starters. Jay Gruden confirmed that, but left himself the option to adjust if needed.
“We’ll see how it goes right now,” he said. “When I say a quarter, it depends a lot on the situation of the game. If we have a nice 12-or-14-play drive, that could change everything. We will be on a play count for our ones on offense. I want them to anticipate playing at least a quarter so they get in their frame that they might have to go back out for a second or third series. You tell them one series and it’s three and out, that’s not enough for us.”
All eyes will once again be on Griffin, who by his own account had his best day of practice on Tuesday.
