Robert Griffin III wants to play, but that won't happen on his clock.
Griffin -- on pace to start in Week 1 -- dressed for pregame warmups Thursday night and handled the coin toss, too. But when the Redskins took the field for a 22-21 preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans, it was Kirk Cousins who took first-team snaps.
"Robert wanted to get some more work done, and it was good to see him out there," Shanahan said after the win.
"I'm ready to move on from 7-on-7s," Griffin said Monday.
Full work in practice is a logical next step for RGIII, but Shanahan refuses to push him into action. There's a merry tug of war between Griffin and his coach, with Shanahan telling NFL.com's Jeff Darlington this week: "He might not always like the plan. But it's not my job to be liked. My job is to do the best thing for him -- and that's what I'll do."Around The League Podcast is now available on iTunes! Click here to listen and subscribe.
