Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III says he is healty

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looked pretty rusty for most of the Monday Night Football season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. That had many speculating that he wasn’t entirely healthy or ready for the season opener. This week the Redskins will take on the Green Bay Packers and RG3 told beat writers during a conference call that he’s 100% healthy.

“Yeah, I mean I feel good,” said Griffin, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “God’s got a plan and we all made it out of the game healthy. That’s the most important part of it.”

The Redskins offense failed to get anything going in the first half, in fact their only first half points came from defensive back DeAngelo Hall. Finally down in the 33-14 in the fourth quarter the Redskins, led by RG3 were able to charge. In the first half Griffin went 5 for 11 and 53 yards. In the second half he completed 25 of 38 passes for 276 yards.

Nine of those yards came in the first quarter and 169 of them came in the fourth.

Griffin threw two fourth quarter touchdown passes, both to wide receiver Leonard Hankerson. One was a 10 yard pass and the other was a 24 yard strike. Griffin also ran the ball 5 times for 24 yards.
