VIDEO: RG3 Exits Early With Possible Concussion


Ever since we first saw the way the Washington Redskins were going to use #2 overall draft pick QB Robert Griffin III, there have been those who swore he would get hurt. Looks like the naysayers were right.

In todays game at Fed Ex Field against the Atlanta Falcons, RG3 took a wicked shot on a rushing play near the goal-line. Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon came in hard and hit Griffin in the neck area with his helmet and the rookie QB immediately slumped to the ground.

The Redskins have sent RG3 to the locker room for tests and have officially labelled him as questionable to return, describing him as “shaken up” which is essentially code for concussion.
