Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III lost his starting job this past week and might lose a roster spot later in the week. What he hasn’t lost is his faith.

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.
