Robert Griffin III leaves game in third quarter

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III left Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons in the third quarter after being hit in the helmet on a sack.

Griffin was slammed into by Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon’s side with six minutes left in the third quarter. Washington said that Griffin was “shaken up” and a return was “questionable.”

As Griffin stayed on the turf, face-down, fans took up the chant “RG3! RG3!”

Griffin was attended to by trainers on the bench and taken to the locker room.

Fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins, took over on Washington’s next possession. On Cousin’s second drive, he completed a 77-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss.
