Griffin on Monday clarified his thoughts.

“I don’t think we needed game time,” he said. “We don’t need to go out and miss a couple more deep balls and then we’ll hit them. It’s just about throwing the deep balls. We need to practice that a little bit more in practice.

“It will just take a little bit of time, not a whole season or anything like that. That comes with more practice, not necessarily missing throws in games.”

Griffin has a less than two weeks of practice to get it right before the real games begin.
