I just wanted to have a blank shirt on, and I’ll probably have a blank one on the next game.”

Meanwhile, a visiting Japanese reporter joined in the RG3 hoopla, asking Griffin about the fact that he was born in Japan as the son of military parents.

“I’d like to thank my mom and dad for having me over there,” he said.

But Griffin didn’t play any football in Japan. His mother declared it off-limits.

“My mom wouldn’t let me play football as a kid,” he said. “She didn’t want me to get hurt. I didn’t play until I was in seventh grade.”

Which means his mother probably wasn’t happy with that Rams game, either.

NOTES: CB Josh Morgan has been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion against the Rams. He was officially listed as limited Wednesday. Asked how many concussions he’s had, he answered: “I think that’s a funny question. I don’t remember.” … WR Pierre Garcon (foot) and S Brandon Meriweather (knee) were also limited.
