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.
