RG3's thoughts on Monday night's game film

Forty-eight hours since his first live action in eight months, Robert Griffin III said his knee feels “fine.” The Redskins quarterback did, however, acknowledge some “typical soreness” from the hits he absorbed in the loss to the Eagles. 

“The knee feels fine,” Griffin said Wednesday. “Typical soreness from getting hit. Philly got good me a couple of times. That’s just the way it goes.”

Griffin was sacked three times and hit on nine occasions. The biggest hits were delivered by Cary Williams on a corner blitz in the second quarter, Mychal Kendricks a possession later and an unimpeded DeMeco Ryans in the third.

The hits were the first Griffin had absorbed since the Redskins’ playoff loss to Seattle in January. 

“I passed the hit test,” Griffin said. “I got hit a lot. I got hit every kind of way, too. I think that’s another huge relief for everybody, the coaches, the players, myself.”
