ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins are having trouble completing the long ball.

In passes that travel 21-plus yards through the air, Griffin is 5 for 24 with two touchdowns and three interceptions for a 43.1 rating.

Last year he was one of the best when he let it fly: 15 for 39 with seven touchdowns and one interception for a 115.1 rating.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that Griffin still isn't the same since returning from knee surgery, and that no one has stepped up to become the No. 2 receiver opposite Pierre Garcon.

The Redskins are 2-5. They host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
