Mike Shanahan says from now on he's going to make sure that Robert Griffin III "never plays if he's not 100 percent."
The Washington Redskins coach on Wednesday said his gut instinct changes from year to year when it comes to deciding whether a player is too hurt to play. That is what's happening in regard to his quarterback, who required reconstructive surgery after reinjuring his knee in a playoff loss to Seattle in January.
Shanahan has been criticized for not removing Griffin from the game earlier. The coach said Wednesday: "Sometimes you make the right call, other times you don't, but at the end of the day you're always hoping that you learn from your mistakes, whatever they are."
