Griffin hasn’t publicly commented since Kirk Cousins was announced as the starter Monday but tweeted Wednesday morning, “Though we all face obstacles in life, I encourage you to lean on God throughout & remember his promise Jeremiah 29:11.”
Griffin often issues faith-related tweets. Four days ago, after neurologists failed to clear him for Saturday’s preseason game versus the Baltimore Ravens — after having done so the previous day — Griffin tweeted, “Trusting in God even when I don’t understand why certain things happen. James 1:2-3 (NLT).”
Later Wednesday, Griffin will attend the Redskins’ Welcome Home Luncheon, along with the rest of his teammates and approximately 200 fans. Each player is introduced to the crowd.
