This week's article at the Post breaks down how Robert Griffin III can continue to take advantage of his running ability and stay off injured reserve.
Griffin’s scrambles tend to be more productive than his designed runs, but they also have another benefit which may be considerably more important in the long run. On his scrambles, Griffin made it out of bounds 17 of 20 times. On designed runs he got there just 8 of 38 times. Although getting out of bounds is certainly no assurance of evading a bone-crushing tackle, it does tend to spare a runner the kind of hit that puts a player on injured reserve. Plus, there is a reduced chance of fumbling and losing a fumble near the sideline.
