No logos were visible.

Last week, a strip of white tape with “HEART” scrawled in black marker covered Griffin’s swoosh.

His Adidas affiliation included the company sponsoring a 74-foot moving projection of the quarterback, complete with Adidas logos, on the Newseum’s first amendment tablet last month.

Nike is in its first season as the NFL’s official outfitter.

Wilson’s big moment

Josh Wilson stands just 5-foot-9, but the Redskins‘ cornerback delivered a big moment on the first play from scrimmage. After Rams quarterback Sam Bradford zinged a 12-yard pass to Danny Amendola, linebacker Perry Riley ripped the ball away. Wilson scooped it up and sprinted 30 yards for the sixth touchdown of his career.

Entering Sunday, four of Wilson’s touchdowns came via interception returns and the other on a kickoff return as a rookie in 2007.

Carriker, Orakpo dinged up

Before Griffin took a snap in the first quarter, two key Redskins defenders left the field because of injury.

End Adam Carriker was helped off after injuring his right knee 21 seconds into the game.

Then outside linebacker Brian Orakpo appeared to hurt his chest after sacking Bradford minutes later. Orakpo wasn’t happy and chucked his helmet 10 yards as he staggered to the sideline, but returned with 4:51 left in the first.

Orakpo partially tore his left pectoral muscle in last season’s finale and needed offseason surgery to repair the problem.

The Fisher ‘stache
