Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was held out of the final minutes of Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos after getting hammered to the turf while throwing his second interception of the game.
UPDATE: Oct. 28 at 11:55 a.m. ET by Rob Goldberg
While the original injury looked scary, it appears as though Griffin will be just fine going forward. Mike Jones of the Washington Post quotes the quarterback after the game:
The knee feels fine. I’m not sure which D-tackle it was. I think it was Knighton, who came in and landed all 300-plus pounds of himself on my leg and I think it really just scared me. After the docs checked me, I was fine and ready to go back in the game. I talked with Mike and Kirk was out there already, and we just thought it was smart to keep me off the field and just be ready to go next week.
---End of Update---
As noted by Albert Breer of NFL.com, he was seen being looked at by trainers, who were checking out his left knee, which isn't the same as the one he injured last season:
Griffin III made an attempt to get back into the game after the Redskins picked off Payton Manning with just over four minutes remaining in regulation. However, the game was already out of hand in favor of Denver, and the Redskins weren't going to take any chances with Griffin III's health.
Despite suffering the injury, CSN Washington reports that RG3 feels, "Fine."
We'll see just how fine Griffin III is once Week 9 rolls around.
