Griffin: 'Everybody's tired of losing'

A day after Robert Griffin III’s father raised some eyebrows by entering the Redskins’ locker room following the team’s 27-6 loss to the 49ers, a team official explained that the elder Griffin was checking to see if his son had been injured.

Griffin was sacked four times, hit a total of seven times and accidentally kicked in the groin. He did not miss any snaps and did not appear to exhibit any outward signs of an injury.

“Robert’s father was checking on him after the game because he thought he was injured,” Redskins’ spokesman Tony Wyllie said.

After the loss—Washington’s third in a row—Griffin Jr. came into the locker room when it was opened to reporters and had a lengthy discussion with his son at his locker stall. He also accompanied Griffin III to his post game news conference and returned to the locker room afterward to continue the conversation.

Griffin Jr.’s presence was noteworthy because of how rare it is for a family member to enter the locker room after a game.
