LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins beat the Indianapolis Colts 30-17 in the final tune up for the players safely on the roster and rookies Robert Griffin III (11-of-17, 74 yards and a touchdown) and Alfred Morris (14 carries for 107 yards and a touchdown) really impressed.
“If we’re going to finish it with this performance, I think that was a great way to finish it,” Griffin said.
Also, veteran quarterback Rex Grossman (8-of-8, 127 yards and two touchdowns) had a solid outing.
Bubble guy Dezmon Briscoe caught a touchdown for the second week in a row trying to help his cause as roster cuts near. Fellow veteran Chris Wilson had a sack that resulted in a safety and was flying all over the place.
“I campaigned well today,” Wilson said. “I was just trying to be aggressive.”
Running back Tim Hightower had his first carry since tearing his ACL last October and ended the day running for 28 yards on five carries.
“I don’t think I was really worried about the knee,” Hightower said. “It was just football. It just felt good to be a part of it.”
Hightower added that he “hugged my coach and the trainers about 18 times just because it’s been a long road.”
