Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was asked by an NFL uniform inspector to cover his knee brace under his right sock. He complied.
“Everybody in the league kept calling down to our sideline saying I needed to cover the brace up,” Griffin told reporters. “I don’t understand that one. But that’s why we had to continue to do some stuff to cover the brace up with my sock. It was the same brace. It just looked bigger because they kept putting stuff over it.
“Man, I don’t know what the league’s doing. I got fined 10 grand for a shirt. I mean, I don’t know.”
Other than losing the game to the Philadelphia Eagles and the knee brace inconvenience, Griffin made a strong return.
He completed 30 of 49 passes for 329 yards, throwing two interceptions. He was careful about running, rushing just five times for 24 yards.
"Had a serious case of the can't-get-rights," Griffin said. "Penalties, hurting ourselves. I don't throw picks, Alfred [Morris] doesn't fumble, and Kai [Forbath] doesn't miss field goals. All three of those happened tonight. So we'll get better, no doubt."
