NFC East Watch: Checking in on RG3

Robert Griffin III was limited to nine games in 2014 after suffering an ankle injury

Coming off another injury hampered year, his second in his three seasons in the NFL, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has a simple goal this offseason: Get healthy.

Griffin was limited to nine games in 2014 (a career low), after suffering a dislocated ankle in Week 2. According to the former No. 2 overall pick, he never really got healthy after that.

"The biggest thing for me is coming back healthy,” Griffin said, per “Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that. When you get broken and dragged home in the second week of the season ... When you and your team have big things in mind ... It's just getting healthy, getting the mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward for this year, and go ahead and win games and be playing again at this time next year."

Griffin finished 2014 with 1,694 passing yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. He was also charged with five fumbles.
