ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden is both understanding and a little perplexed by Robert Griffin III's inability to execute a graceful slide.

Gruden said Wednesday that Griffin ''needs to be a bit more fluid'' when it comes to sliding, even though that can be tough to do in open field when players are flying around. The coach even suggested he might eventually have to order up some sort of sliding training for the franchise quarterback.

Sliding remained the hot topic at Redskins Park two days after Griffin took some big hits and pulled off an inelegant slide in a preseason win over the Cleveland Browns.

Asked if the topic is overblown, Gruden said: ''It is an issue if he gets injured. It's not an issue if he doesn't.''
