ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - 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.''
