Robert Griffin III tweeted the good news. It's simply not official yet. The Washington quarterback was cleared Thursday by his surgeon to be under center when the regular season opens for the Redskins on Sept. 9. However, coach Mike Shanahan hedged after a preseason-ending 30-12 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "There's a couple of concerns that he has," Shanahan said to reporters. "I'll talk to Robert over the weekend, and I'll let you guys know on Monday. " The Redskins did not make Griffin available to answers questions.

Robert Griffin III found a way to get involved on the first day of the Washington Redskins' training camp, even when he was supposed to be a spectator. Barred from the main 11-on-11 drills, Griffin nevertheless started chasing linebacker Bryan Kehl after Kehl intercepted a pass from just-for-now starter Kirk Cousins. When the ball popped loose, Griffin scooped it up the fumble and took off downfield. The fans, who had been watching him mostly stand around during the drill, roared their approval.

The Washington Redskins put together their first unbeaten preseason in 28 years without Robert Griffin III even taking a snap. Griffin then tweeted Thursday night that he will be under center when the regular season opens for Washington on Sept. 9, but coach Mike Shanahan hedged after the 30-12 victory over Tampa Bay. Fourth-stringer Pat White threw for 181 yards, set up a touchdown with a 66-yard completion to Dezmon Briscoe, and also ran for a TD to help the Redskins finish the preseason 4-0. Shanahan rested most of his starters, including Griffin, who worked out at Raymond James Stadium for about 30 minutes before walking off the field with Dr. James Andrews.

If Robert Griffin III is “All in for Week 1,” what's the status of his backup, Kirk Cousins? “I was trying to get an 'All in for Week 4 of the Preseason' commercial,” Cousins said Monday. Actually, Cousins isn't likely to play in the Washington Redskins' final preseason game Thursday because of his sprained right foot. He did say there's “no doubt at all” he'll be ready for the opener Sept. 9. “I do want to play Thursday, but I'd also rather be safe than sorry,” Cousins said.

That's some backup plan the Washington Redskins have at quarterback and running back. Now it's a matter of getting those rookies in the secondary up to scratch. The Redskins' first preseason game reinforced what was evident late last year and throughout the first couple of weeks of this year's training camp: Kirk Cousins is a confident, able No. 2 behind Robert Griffin III. “He's been impressive from the time he got here,” coach Mike Shanahan said. Granted, Cousins is no Griffin.

RG3, plus three more. The Washington Redskins are keeping four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. Pat White, who this year returned to the NFL after a detour through baseball, made the cut Saturday when the team trimmed its roster at the league's deadline. He joins Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman as the QBs for the reigning NFC East champions. In training camp, White looked like a rusty quarterback who hasn't played in the NFL since 2009, the year he was a second-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins.

Kevin Kolb left the game with concussion-like symptoms, leaving the Buffalo Bills with an undrafted rookie as their only healthy quarterback. Even a rookie NFL head coach can figure out what to do next. “I think we'll be looking at bringing some quarterbacks in,” coach Doug Marrone said. That's right. There's a team more quarterback-depleted this preseason than the Washington Redskins, who are making do without Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Third-stringer Rex Grossman threw for 171 yards as the Redskins beat the Bills 30-7 on Saturday.

RG3 wishes he had been the first to put a Roman numeral on the back of his uniform. Not Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins' other RG3 - Rex Grossman III. “It would have been cool to put it on my jersey as a rookie,” Grossman said. “I never thought about it.” Of course, NFL rules didn't permit suffixes on jerseys when Grossman entered the league in 2003. And, as he points out, he didn't have anything close to the marketing cachet of Griffin, who is essentially the reason the rule was changed.

Robert Griffin III's surgeon ended up tending to Griffin's backup. Le'Veon Bell got hurt again. There were 15 penalties and seven turnovers, including a sequence of three giveaways in five plays. What a mess it was when the Washington Redskins beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-13 Monday night. Good thing the preseason doesn't count, except when it hurts. Kirk Cousins, the insurance policy in case Griffin isn't ready for the Redskins' regular-season opener, sprained his right foot early in the second quarter.

Robert Griffin III handled the coin toss, and Kirk Cousins picked up where he left off last season filling in at quarterback for Washington. Cousins threw for a touchdown and missed only one pass as the Redskins edged the Tennessee Titans 22-21 Thursday night in their preseason opener. The Redskins sat eight starters, including Griffin, who warmed up and was on the field dressed. Cousins looked sharp in Griffin's place, completing six of seven passes for 52 yards and a TD for a 137.2 passer rating in two series for the defending NFC East champs.
