He just needs to be smarter and realize that the ability to play the next down is more important than an extra couple yards.
As for the picture of RG III with his knee buckling. That is all the Cowboys fault; If they could have beaten a gimpy RG III the week before, then RG III Would have begun recovering from a less severe injury a week earlier...
The real question is will RG3 be defiant as seen earlier this year with reference to absorbing these types of hits in the open field?
I personally do NOT think RG3 will change his approach regardless of his injury and this will in turn lead to the eventual rise of Cousins on the depth chart if not remedied either by coaching intervention or by RG3 in terms of maturation process.
If RG3 does adjust, it will be interesting to see how this will effect his play overall.
