Robert Griffin III Sustained A Brutal Knee Injury In The Redskins' Playoff Loss

Let's hope RGIII is ok.

Posted on

Robert Griffin III, the Redskins' Pro Bowl rookie quarterback, has been the NFL's breakout star this year. But in his first playoff game, against the Seattle Seahawks, he had a very bad day.

Trying to recover a botched snap, RGIII plants his foot in FedEx Field's awful surface and gets caught, twisting his already injured knee in a gruesome manner. Griffin had been struggling all day with the knee, and the maneuver appeared to be more than he could handle.


Here's video of the injury.

To make matters worse, the Redskins lost to the Seahawks after scoring the first 14 points of the game. Seattle heads to Atlanta next week, while Washington — both the team and the city — will be obsessively focused on the condition of its quarterback's knee.
