The Washington Post Sunday



Last Sunday, the Redskins’ newest quarterbac­k was impressive when on the move. Johnson was able to avoid the Giants’ pass rush and get to the outside, where he ran for decent yardage or threw to open receivers. He doesn’t have to run for a lot of yards; he just has to be elusive enough for plays to develop. Coach Jay Gruden said he saw some hope in Johnson’s performanc­e in the blowout loss to New York. He hadn’t been on a team since the spring or in practice situations since the end of last year, but if he can keep moving, the Redskins have a chance.
