According to the Browns, more tests will be conducted on Monday to determine the extent of the injury.
It’s the latest example of Griffin not properly protecting himself. The situation prompted NBC’s Tony Dungy to chime in with this, after Football Night in America televised a clip of Griffin telling reporters this mother was calling him: “She’s calling you to tell you to slide.”
Griffin has apparently mastered the art of sliding in practice, but everything changes when the games that count commence. He had the skills to run away from defenders in high school, so he never had to learn how to slide. In four seasons and one game of his NFL career, he hasn’t been able to figure it out.
And with a pair of games coming up against the Steelers, Bengals, and Ravens, it’s not going to get any easier for him.
