RG3′s Left Knee is a Little Sore, but Okay After big hit
- Updated: October 29, 2013
After being planted on the turf and having his left knee pinned underneath him by 335-pound Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton with 5:43 left to play Sunday, Robert Griffin III was slow to get up. Many Redskins fans were immediately reminded of last January when Griffin injured his other knee. After receiving medical treatment on the sideline, FOX NFL cameras showed Griffin III hopping off the examination table and rejoining his teammates on the sideline.
Griffin was re-examined on Monday by Redskins orthopedic physician Chris Annunziata, MD.
“The knee is fine,” Washington coach Mike Shanahan said during his Monday press conference. “Little bit sore right now. That’s about it.” Griffin is expected at practice on Wednesday.
“He’s going to have a little bit more rehab this week, which is typical of the quarterback or any other player having something hurt,” Shanahan said. “But they feel he’s fine and will be ready to go on Wednesday.”
Griffin didn’t seem worried about the close call. “The knee feels fine. I’m not sure which defensive tackle it was who came in and landed all 300-plus pounds of himself on my leg,” Griffin III said. “I think it just really scared me.
“After I got up and the doctors checked me I was fine, ready to back in the game, talked with coach. Just the way the game had gone and Kirk was already out there, it was just smart to keep me off the field and just be ready to go next week.”
“Team doctors had already finished examining me and D-Hall caught the pick, so I jumped off the table to go back into the game and I couldn’t find my helmet,” he said. “So then Kirk went in and it was a scramble from that point.
“We all made a decision that I was fine, I could go back in the game and then we all made the decision that it was time to keep me out at that point.”
