RG3 Knee Injury Raises Questions, Concerns for Redskins

by at . Comments

The Washington Redskins' season went from dream to nightmare in the course of one half last night, as the team blew a 14-0 lead in the first quarter... and then quarterback Robert Griffin III blew out his knee in the fourth quarter.

As a result, talk in the nation's capital today isn't of the team's 24-14 loss to the Seahawks, but of how serious an injury Griffin suffered.

And whether Coach Mike Shanahan should have taken him out as soon as his limp became noticeable.

QB hurt

"I think I did put myself at more risk by being out there," said Griffin, who missed a game earlier this season with a sprained MCL. "But every time you get on the field, you're putting yourself on the line."

Griffin, though, said he believes himself to be Washington's "best option" under center and Shanahan said he talked to his star throughout the game.

"He said, 'Hey, trust me. I want to be in there, and I deserve to be in there,' " Shanahan told reporters. "I couldn't disagree with him."

But for the long-term health of his franchise, considering Griffin may have torn a ligament, should he have? Should Shanahan have removed Griffin early in the game?
