Robert Griffin III Injury: Star QB's Knee Is No Cause for Alarm
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III exited in the fourth quarter of Week 8's 45-21 loss to the Denver Broncos with a left knee injury.
It was not a setback of any sort of severe variety, though, which should allow the nation's capital to breathe a sign of relief with regard to its pro football prospects:

Or maybe not.
Griffin followed up his best game of the 2013 season with his worst in Denver on Sunday, completing just 15 of 30 passes for 132 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while losing a fumble.
Last week's QBR was 91.8, and in this contest it was at the opposite end of the spectrum at 7.5.
The Redskins faithful should be more worried about Griffin's on-field production than any further health problems, but perhaps the two are more interrelated than the stubborn, competitive QB will let on.
Whatever is causing the decline in Griffin's play might be hurting Washington's chances of defending the NFC East title. However, head coach Mike Shanahan isn't likely to remove his franchise signal-caller from the field unless RGIII is flat-out incapable of playing.
