Wide receiver Pierre Garcon said Monday that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is “obviously” not completely healthy and is “a lot different” as a player than he was last season as a rookie.

For a second straight week Garcon spoke candidly about Griffin’s play as the quarterback returns from knee surgery in January.

“He’s not fully healthy obviously” Garcon said at Redskins Park. “He’s running a little bit more. But last year’s RGIII was a lot different from this year’s RG because of his knee. It’s not surprising. We’ve been talking about it the whole offseason. It’s the same question every day on Monday. We can find something else to talk about.”

Garcon’s latest comments about Griffin’s play came a day after the Redskins’ record dropped to 0-3 with Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions at FedEx Field.

The Redskins used Griffin a bit more often as a runner against the Lions. He rushed for 37 yards on six carries Sunday. He also threw for 326 yards on 32-for-50 passing. But he threw an interception and lost a fumble without being hit as he dove head first to the turf on a scramble.

“I don’t think he’s 100 percent” Garcon said. “But he’s definitely giving 100 percent effort to get 100 percent. I don’t think he’s 100 percent but he will eventually get there. It’s just playing with injuries. Everybody is hurt in the NFL. I had to play with an injury last year so I know what he’s going through. It’s not surprising. But it’s just something you’ve got to deal with when you’re in the league and during the season.”

Garcon reiterated what he’d said last week about Griffin clearly being hindered by wearing a knee brace. Garcon said last week that the effects of Griffin not playing in the preseason were showing early in the regular season. He said Monday that Griffin’s knee remains a primary topic of conversation because the Redskins are losing.

“When you’re winning you never talk about anything bad” Garcon said. “But when you’re losing everything gets magnified. But coming off an ACL injury which we all know is a tough thing to come back from it all depends on how the season goes. If we were winning we wouldn’t be talking about his knee. If we’re losing we’re talking about it. So I’m used to it.”
