Robert Griffin III does not have major injury, just sprained

There is a big sigh of relief in the Nations capital. Robert Griffin III does not have a major knee injury. The team reported Sunday night that their quarterback had simply suffered a knee sprain.

An MRI was taken after the game that confirmed that “everything is clear” according to one team spokesman.

Griffin injured his knee late in Sunday’s win against the Baltimore Ravens. Kirk Cousins, who is also a rookie, replaced him and led the Redskins to a win in overtime.

After the game Griffin told reporters that he was confident it was not an ACL injury. RG3 had suffered an ACL injury while at Baylor.

No word from the team yet as to how long, if at all, Griffin will be out. Head coach Mike Shanahan is expected to give more clarity on the situation when he meets with reporters Monday.

The Redskins are now 7-6 and have placed themselves in the drivers seat for a Wild Card spot.
