RG3 injured, will have MRI sunday night

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III was forced out of the game with a knee injury in the final minutes of Sunday’s win against the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin limped off the field to make way for fellow rookie Kirk Cousins who led the Redskins to the tying and winning scores.

Griffin didn’t believe the injury was much to worry about. “It didn’t feel like an ACL or anything like that,” said Griffin after the game. X-rays on the knee were negative and he will have an MRI Sunday night. Griffin tore the same ACL back in 2009 while at Baylor. For now, the team is calling it a sprain.

His status for the matchup with fellow rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and the Browns next week is unknown.

    I want to see RG3 be healthy but wouldn’t be upset if he wanted to take next week off to get fully healthy.
