Following the Washington Redskins 21-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers, starting rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III was further evaluated with a rib injury and underwent x-rays. The x-rays were to make sure Griffin did not fracture any ribs after taking a big hit early in the game, per Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
The x-rays came back negative but Griffin has soreness in the area.
“I’m fine. I’ll be ready to go,” Griffin said. “No one is ever going to question the fight I have inside myself to be the greatest and to help this team to victory. It doesn’t matter what it is, I will make sure that I continue to help my team win games and that it starts right after the bye.”
If the Redskins didn’t have their bye next week, then there would be some concern over whether or not Griffin will miss game time. However, thanks to the extra time off, Griffin doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing action.
