Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will have an MRI tonight to determine the significance of the leg injury he suffered late in today’s win over the Ravens.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that there are mixed views within the Redskins organization about just how worried they should be based on their preliminary assessments of Griffin’s leg. But they won’t know anything for sure until they conduct an MRI, and so they’re going to do that as soon as possible.
The good news is that Griffin said after the game that it didn’t feel like he suffered a torn ACL. Griffin, who tore his ACL in college at Baylor, said he remembers that feeling, and what he felt today wasn’t as bad.
Still, the way Griffin’s leg buckled on the hit that caused today’s injury was ugly, and folks in Washington will be nervous until the MRI results are available.
