10/24: Robert Griffin III Statement

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III issued a statement to reporters about his return from a dislocated ankle Friday, Oct. 24, 2014:

"A quote that I stumbled upon during this process of being injured and being out was by Winston Churchill. It says, 'Courage is what it takes to stand up and do something. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.' During this time, I've been listening, learning, growing as a player in this offense. It's our job to help this team win and I've been there for Kirk and Colt as much as I possibly can and being there for this team to make sure they're as ready as possible during this process. It sucks that I can't get out there and play with them and help them get wins. But I've been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches, and we're not going to rush my ankle. It's a blessing that I wasn't hurt as bad as it could have been. It's been a blessing and I've been recovering right on time. That's good, but at the same time, we don't want to rush that. It's Dallas week. We all want to beat Dallas. We all know what this game means for our season, so that's what I've been trying to do this week and making sure that I'm ready to go, making sure this team's ready to go, and whoever plays quarterback is ready to go. That's all I got to say. Beat Dallas."
