Financial implications of Jammal Brown’s contract are weighed

Kicker Graham Gano appeared to make at least something of a political statement Thursday when he posted to his Twitter account the message “Proudly supporting Chick-fil-A today” accompanied by a photo of several items from the fast-food restaurant. The post was deleted soon after.

Wednesday was Chick-fil-A appreciation day as ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee publicized and others wanted to show support for CEO Dan Cathy, who made comments against same-sex marriage. Gano declined comment about the Twitter post.

Griffin’s preseason plan

Shanahan said he plans on giving quarterback Robert Griffin III the same playing time routine as the rest of the Redskins’ starters this preseason.

“I’m using that first game anywhere from 12 to 20 plays. The second game they usually play a half,” Shanahan said. “The third preseason game, I usually play a series into the third quarter, sometimes I’ll get them out there at half depending on the number of plays. Fourth game, they don’t play. That’s what I’ve done in the past.”

Asked if it mattered that Griffin was a rookie, Shanahan responded: “Doesn’t matter who it is.”

Extra points

• Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong suffered a shoulder injury Thursday. Shanahan said it was an AC joint injury and Armstrong would get X-rays.

• Safety DeJon Gomes missed practice with a sore shoulder and will be out 2-3 days.
