ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Robert Griffin III had a solid, if brief, debut Thursday in the Washington Redskins' 7-6 pre-season win over the Buffalo Bills.
Griffin, the Heisman Trophy winner and second overall selection in the 2012 draft, played three series for the Redskins and went 4-for-6 for 70 yards and a 20-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon.
Garcon turned in an impressive game in his first appearance since signing with Washington as a free agent. Garcon caught three passes for 58 yards.
Griffin's fellow rookie, Kirk Cousins, did the lion's share of work at quarterback for the Redskins. He completed 9-of-22 throws for 74 yards and was intercepted once.
