Robert Griffin III Addresses NFL Health Concerns in Hollywood Reporter Interview

With the Redskins about to reconvene for training camp next week in Richmond, it is about that time when everything Robert Griffin III says must be dissected and aggregated in blog posts. 

The latest nugget comes via The Hollywood Reporter, which interviewed the quarterback for its "Sports Issue."

Within, RGIII says that fellow NFL players are "concerned" for what Thursday games could mean for their health. CBS will air eight games on Thursday evenings this season. Meanwhile, the NFL has been served with concussion-related lawsuits from former players.

"There are a lot of players out there who feel like there are not enough days in the week for us to be playing on Thursdays," Griffin said. "It's something the NFL is going to have to address to make sure they're keeping their players safe while also trying to maximize their revenue."

Alas, Griffin did not comment on his team's polarizing moniker, which leaves me with space to fill. So here's a video.
