If Robert Griffin III rushed back from a major knee injury because he was worried about losing his job to Kirk Cousins, well, that’s news to him.

“Me and Kirk have always been good,” Griffin told CSNwashington.com. “That’s not an issue. The way I look at it, hard work, dedication and God’s grace is what helped me come back and play so quick.”

He added: “Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not that guy. I’m not the guy that these negative articles are trying to paint me to be.”

Griffin’s comment came in response to a report on NFL.com over the weekend that said Griffin feared Cousins might take over as the Redskins’ No. 1 while he worked his way back from a knee injury.
