Robert Griffin III Leaves Preseason Game With Shoulder Injury (UPDATE)

For some reason, Robert Griffin III stayed in Washington’s meaningless preseason game against the Detroit Lions for four series. Because Washington was missing Trent Williams and the rest of their offensive line is made of paper, Griffin got walloped half a dozen times before hurting his shoulder in a scrum for a fumble in the second quarter.


We don’t yet know the seriousness of the injury, but he is being evaluated for shoulder and head injuries:

This is what happens when you play your starting QB into the second quarter of a fake game!

Update (11:05 p.m.): Griffin’s shoulder is okay, but he has a concussion.
