RGIII plays football with an elephant, wears a glittery jacket at the circus

It’s still unclear whether Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be “All in for Week 1,” but at least he appears to be practicing. Here he is at Verizon Center on Sunday throwing to Kelly Ann, described by her employers — the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus — as the “largest wide receiver on earth.” She also appears to be a Redskins fan.

And here are some more wonderful photos of the Griffin family enjoying a magical Sunday at the circus, complete with clowns and glitter.

The circus this year is honoring the Year of the Dragon, bringing together “mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats. The Verizon Center run is over, but the show is at Baltimore’s 1st Mariner Arena from March 27 to April 7, and at the Patriot Center from April 10 to 21.
