Robert Griffin III
When Redskins fans hear their team has an injury issue, there is one player they do not want it to be. Unfortunately, this injury is all about that one player.
CBS' Dave Richard tweeted out the bleak news.
Griffin was trying to gut out this injury late in the fourth quarter, but his leg would not let him continue.
The Washington Examiner's Rick Snider gave us an update on the star rookie's condition.
Now it's time to start hoping this strain doesn't keep him out of next week's action. Preliminary reports like this one from Albert Breer are keeping things positive in Washington.
Griffin tore his ACL in 2009 while at Baylor, so he certainly knows the pain and extent of that injury. Lucky for the Redskins, the MRI came back negative on Griffin's knee and the team is calling it a knee sprain. NFL Insider Jay Glazer had the report:
That's great news for Washington, but you have to wonder if RG3's reckless abandonment for his body is going to get him in some serious trouble in the near future. Kirk Cousins saved the day on Sunday, but this is a troubling trend for the No. 2 overall pick.
