According to Chuck Carroll of CBS DC,  Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered an injury to his left knee during Sunday’s loss to the Broncos.

The good news is that it’s not his surgically repaired right knee.

The biggest concern for the Washington Redskins Sunday isn’t a 45-21 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos. It is the health of Robert Griffin III who exited late in the fourth quarter after taking a hard shot from Terrance Knighton.

Griffin lay on the ground, writhing in pain and grabbing his left knee. The quarterback’s right knee has twice undergone reconstructive surgery for ACL tears.

He was attended to by the training staff on a sideline examination table and was able to hop off under his own power.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan believes Griffin is fine.

“I think he’s fine,” Mike Shanahan said after the game. “The doctors felt he could have went back in after that first play and decided to keep him out with the way the score was.”

Griffin also believes hes OK.

“The knee feels fine,” he said. “I’m not sure which d-tackle it was — I think it was Knighton — came in and landed all 300-plus pounds of himself on my leg. I think it really just scared me.”
