Reid: Robert Griffin III?s time with the Redskins appears to be running out

SANTA CLARA, Calif. ? Only five weeks remain in the regular season, and it appears Robert Griffin III?s time is running out with the Washington Redskins.

Griffin?s long slide continued Sunday afternoon during a 17-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, potentially moving the team a step closer to making a major change at quarterback. In another largely ineffective performance, Griffin struggled for most of the game as the Redskins lost their third straight since he returned to the starting lineup.
