Redskins' RG3 Says He Can Take Hits, Chides Rams

By  | 

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Robert Griffin III says the St. Louis Rams were "unprofessional" and did a lot of "dirty things." But the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback says he's not going to shy from running the ball or taking hits.

Sunday's 31-28 loss was barely over when the Redskins started saying the replacement officials had lost control and that the Rams were engaged in too much shoving after the whistle.

Griffin kept it up on Wednesday. He was sacked only once in the game but was hit often after throwing the ball. He said at one point a Rams player told him: "We're going to hit you every play."

Says Griffin: "They don't think I can take a hit. I think I've proved over my career that I can."
