Robert Griffin III gave Washington another injury scare Sunday evening, but it does not look to be serious.
The second-year pro was knocked out of the game with a left knee injury late in the fourth quarter of the Redskins' 45-21 loss to the Denver Broncos. Dr. James Andrews tells NFL Media's Omar Ruiz that RGIII is "OK." The Redskins quarterback was removed from the game as a precaution, Ruiz reported. In his postgame news conference, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told reporters Griffin was kept out "due to (the) score."
Broncos nose tackle Terrance Knighton laid a huge hit on Griffin, who is lucky he didn't break any ribs. Griffin was examined by the team's medical staff, but he was walking around and talking with the coaching staff right after that.
Griffin's knee does not sound like a concern. His accuracy throwing the ball and Washington's 2-5 record remains a problem.
