    "Last year's Heisman Trophy winner was helped off the field after being landed on by Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata at the end of a 13-yard scramble. Griffin returned to the game for four plays, then dropped to the turf on his knees and left again."

    Looks like a torn ligament but MRI will need to confirm.

    Thought they said he sprained his knee? WHO is reporting this?

    No dropoff with Cousins.

    Yeah, where are you seeing this?

    Shanahan confirmed after the game that RG3 asked to come back in the game a second time but they didn't want to risk it so they put him in a brace.

    I read it was just a sprain, but I guess all injuries are called sprains until MRI?

    Wishful thinking from the OP perhaps?

    There's a huge dropoff with Cousins. Can Cousins do the things RG3 can especially with that read option.

    If he is out for more than a game then the league should just cancel the rest of the season.

    Potentially. Cousins is a very calm pocket passer. However, teams now wont have to worry about defending such an unconventional offense w/out Griffin.

    This means absolutely nothing. Most players ask to come back into the game but notice he DIDN'T. Wait to the MRI to see what really happened.

    Looks like the media will have to find somebody else to drool over....

    How about giving andrew luck some love. He has been the comeback king so far this year.

    He had to tear something the way his knee bent and he couldnt even walk on it. Im betting he is done.

    Most knee injuries are usually called a sprain initially until an MRI is performed the Redskins can only hope a sprain is all it is.

    That's all fine and good but again, who with knowledge of the situation is saying he's likely done?

    I realize that him wanting to come back doesn't mean he's fine, but it's not a *bad* sign.
