Despite a scare during the Washington Redskins overtime win over the Baltimore Redskins, all reports are indicating that the knee of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has shown no serious ligament damage. Per the reports, Griffin underwent a MRI following the game and it came back “clear.”

The injury is officially being called a mild sprain by the team, which means there is some damage, but nothing to severe.

With no current timetable for his return, Robert Griffin III could miss next week’s game. Here is a GIF of the play that injured Robert Griffin III’s knee, via Big Lead Sports:
