Robert Griffin III: No time to feel proud


The Washington Redskins quarterback, Robert Griffin III, has made a remarkable comeback from an ACL injury in January. RG3 was cleared by doctors to return to practice. But it was reported today that RG3 most likely wouldn’t play in any preseason games.

“No time to feel proud,” Griffin texted USA TODAY’s Jarrett Bell. “Just more work and winning to do.”

San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore is recovering from his own injury and has said that RG3′s work ethic and attitude has served as inspiration for him.

“I knew why he has been so successful,” said Lattimore. “I don’t think we had to say anything to push each other.”

“There were no down conversations, no negative conversations about our injuries or about anything,” Lattimore said. “All our conversations were about what we were doing and what we were going to do tomorrow or the next day.”

“I was blessed to have him out there,” he said. “I know he helped me a lot.”

But while he doesn’t have time to feel proud, he does feel something.

“Feeling blessed and overjoyed,” Griffin said.

Griffin and the rest of the Washington Redskins will report to camp on Wednesday in Richmond, Virginia.
