Robert Griffin III suffered a right knee injury late in the fourth quarter of the Washington Redskins‘ 31-28 overtime victory against the Baltimore Ravens, and an MRI taken Sunday night showed he did not suffer a torn ACL or medial collateral ligament.
Griffin said after the 31-28 victory that he was not concerned about it being a season-ending ACL tear.
“I’m not a doctor but I know what an ACL [tear] feels like,” Griffin said. “It doesn’t feel like an ACL.”
Griffin said trainers indicated his right ACL looked good. He also said it didn’t feel like that injury.
Left tackle Trent Williams said he was very concerned about the injury because Griffin is the “heartbeat” of the offense.
Griffin was hurt with just under two minutes left in the fourth quarter on a hit from Ravens lineman Haloti Ngata. He left the game for one play, giving way to Kirk Cousins, but returned because he didn’t feel like “enough was enough.”
Griffin limped down the field during the drive; five plays later he said he knew he couldn’t help the team anymore, so he left. Cousins completed a touchdown pass to Garcon and then ran in the two-point conversion himself to tie the score at 28-28.
