Last week was a quiet one for injuries. That wasn't the case this week. Plenty of names big and small were among the walking wounded:
- Robert Griffin III left the Washington Redskins' 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons with a concussion. We refuse to call any concussion mild. The rookie quarterback expressed some optimism about playing next week after the game. The Redskins, meanwhile, could get in trouble for their injury reporting during the game.
- The Green Bay Packers lost three key starters in a wild 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder), defensive tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) and running back Cedric Benson (foot) all were hurt. Finley's injury looks the least serious. He's optimistic he'll play next week. Benson left the building in a walking boot. Raji will undergo an MRI exam Monday morning on the left ankle he injured in Sunday's loss, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network's Steve Wyche. No significant damage is expected, according to the source.
