ST. LOUIS — A week after Robert Griffin III covered up the Nike logo on his warm-up shirt, the Redskins’ quarterback — and Adidas pitchman — dodged the swoosh again.

When Griffin warmed up before facing the Rams on Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome, he wore a plain gray T-shirt over the white long-sleeve warm-up shirt.

No logos were visible.

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

His Adidas affliation 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.
