Robert Griffin III Gives Statement, Ends by Saying “Beat Dallas”

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III hasn’t spoken with members of the media since dislocating his ankle during week 2’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars (39 days). On Friday he broke that silence giving a statement, but not taking any questions from reporters.

Griffin started his statement off with a quote from Winston Churchill and then proceeded to not rule out playing Monday night against the Cowboys.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and do something. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

“During this time, I’ve been listening, learning, growing as a player in this offense. It’s our job to help this team. I’ve been there for Kirk [Cousins] and Colt as much as I possibly can and being there for this team, to make sure they’re as ready as possible during this process. It sucks that I can’t be out there and play with them and help them get wins. But I’ve been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches and we’re not going to rush my ankle. It’s a blessing that I wasn’t hurt as bad as it could have been. And I’ve been recovering right on time. So that’s good, but at the same time, we don’t want to rush that.”

“It’s Dallas Week. We all want to beat Dallas. We know what this game means for our season. So that’s what I’ve been trying to do this week, making sure that I’m ready to go, making sure this team is ready to go and whoever plays quarterback is ready to go. That’s all I got to say. Beat Dallas.”
