                      === Griffin fined $10,000 by NFL ===
 
 New York, NY (Sports Network) - Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin
 III was fined $10,000 by the NFL Thursday for wearing unauthorized apparel.
 
 NFL.com  reports Griffin  received  the fine  for wearing  a  shirt that  read
 "Operation Patience" during pregame warmups prior to Monday's game against the
 Pittsburgh Steelers.
 
 Griffin  is  continuing to work  his way back  to playing following surgery in
 January  to repair both the lateral collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments
 in his right knee.
 
 He's  hoping  to be ready  for the season opener  at home against Michael Vick
 and the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Sept. 9.
