Redskins Face 'Hefty Fine' For Failure To Disclose Robert Griffin III's Concussion

The Washington Redskins tried to be a little tricky last week when reporting Robert Griffin III’s injury during the game. Instead of reporting that Griffin was being observed for a possible concussion, the Redskins simply stated that their first-round pick was “shaken up.”

The NFL doesn’t take kindly to team’s being less than completely honest when it comes to injury reports and the Redskins could be facing a fine for their failure to report the rookie signal-callers concussion.

FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer reports that the Redskins are facing a “hefty fine” for their failure to disclose the concussion.

The league is very serious about head injuries and the Redskins punishment is deserved for trying to avoid reporting the injury. There is no word on how much the fine could be but it seems that it will be a large sum.
