Griffin hurt in Washington, stays in game


Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III may not be injury prone.  But his style of play makes him contact prone.

And he has just sustained contact that has knocked him out of the game.

Hit while running the ball, Griffin’s leg whipped violently on a hit from Haloti Ngata.  He limped off the field, and he was replaced by Kirk Cousin for one play.

After that one play, Griffin returned to the game.  And completed a pass to Santana Moss for a key first down.

UPDATE 4:03 p.m. ET:  Griffin has now left the game, after limping badly throughout his return.

    I’m thinking the critics who blasted the Redskins for drafting RG# and Cousins may be a bit silent at the moment.

    Cousins has the chance now to audition for a bunch of other NFL teams.

    Not a Skins fan but this is an interesting story to follow. Go Kirk. Get better RG3.

    Wow, he showed some impressive resilience and toughness. Helped lead a drive while limping down-field. Not a Redskins fan, but they’ve got a find in this kid.

    It was just a matter of time, he’s always in a position to get hurt.

    don’t worry, Skip Bayless has already cried about it on twitter and blasted those who say he runs too much. he beat you to the punch

    Griffin doens’t have to run, he can throw.

    Hope the colts enjoy winning with Rex Cannon jr. at the helm.

    It was a bad hit anyone on the field could have taken. One thing y.ou can say is he is one tough SOB. Led a drive on one leg. And Cousins did a hell of a job coming in and finishing it off. RG3 will be back next week. Shut up haters, you cabt hate on Griffin.
