ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Robert Griffin III is a middle-of-the-park performer through his first four games after major knee surgery.
The NFL ranks quarterbacks in 10 major categories in its weekly stats package. Griffin ranked 16th, 17th or 18th in eight of them, contributing to the Washington Redskins' 1-3 start.
Griffin conceded Wednesday what has been obvious to anyone watching - then he's needed a few games to get back in stride after being sidelined for most of the offseason and all four preseason games.
Griffin said he's rejuvenated after the bye week, during which he and his wife took a vacation to Williamsburg. Looking ahead to Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys, Griffin says he's got to be the playmaker his teammates need him to be.
