Did RGlll ever block, for his running backs ?
I never saw Eli block for his running backs, maybe it's a injury issue.
RGlll seems not to care.

Cant find a video of it but here:

Eli threw an ugly lead block on a Packer, thought it was woodson but I am not sure. It was the Divisional Round last year, someone on this board has a gif of it with the caption "I got a pancake block coach!"

Typically QB's are advised not to block due to injury concerns sometime their competitiveness gets the better of them and they do it anyways. They are also taught not to dive to try and recover a fumble because it leads to shoulder injuries.

There was a NFL films piece on QB blocks about a month ago:

RGIII isn't called on to block for running backs much, but he did throw a pretty impressive block on a linebacker upfield to spring a TD for Alfred Morris. I can't remember if it was regular season or preseason.

Depends on the play. Some plays have the qb to block. Yet most qbs aren't made to block. Ben is the type who can put a block defenders. A lot of plays have the qb hand the ball to the rb then look the other way while the rb runs. This is so that the defenders can't look at the qb looking at the back running with the ball.
