It wasn’t even a thought last month, when Griffin was sacked by defensive tackle Terrance Knighton in the third quarter of a road loss to the Denver Broncos. He did not return to the game following that hit, which caused his left leg to bend awkwardly beneath him but left him only with soreness.

“Bottom line is, I can’t be taking those amounts of hits — in any of those games or in any games in my career,” Griffin said. “You don’t want to be hit that much, and a lot of the great quarterbacks don’t get hit that much.
