WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM UPDATE 

lGRIFFIN NOT HAPPY WITH HIS PERCEIVED SLUMP

Following up on an item in this week's Team Notes. ... As NFL.com's Dan Hanzus framed it, "Robert Griffin III's trying sophomore season reached its nadir Sunday in Denver. At least, that's the hope for Washington Redskins fans.

"The stars appeared to be aligned for Griffin to break out against the Broncos. Instead, Griffin was a scattershot mess, unable to move his offense with any consistency before leaving the game with a knee injury in the fourth quarter."

Griffin says the knee is fine, but the Redskins' season is teetering on the brink of irrelevance. This was not the plan.

"Stats and rankings doesn't always tell the true story," Griffin told reporters Wednesday. "We've struggled at times."

Griffin's passer rating currently sits at 79.2, a steep drop from the 102.4 he put up during his tremendous rookie season. "It sucks," Griffin said of the statistical slump. He also was asked about dissension creeping into the locker room of a 2-5 team.

Pierre Garcon wasn't mentioned by name, but his recent comments have hung in the air.

"These are grown men. I can't control what they say," Griffin said. "The only way for us to get better is to stick together."

"I make sure no one becomes a cancer on the team. ..."

Griffin practiced fully on Wednesday as did tight end Logan Paulsen (knee).

Garcon (calf) was limited, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of concern about his ability to hit the field this weekend.
