I have no clue Darth but, he tried to come back in. He was hobbled some. I think he plays next week and so forth. He might not be the same though; when trying to get it on foot down field.

I'm trying to be positive, but man that looks scarey.

Dude, post a warning. I just started dry heaving when I saw that again. (vomited out everything after the initial hit)

Woahhh, Dexter is saying Morris is the cog. So if Robert is hamperped some, you can feel good about about our chances against the Browns

I'm far from any kind of specialist... But being that his foot wasn't planted I think.internal damage is less likely. I suspect the verdict will be sprain, hyperextention, brusing or something along those lines. Im hopeful it isn't anything worse.. and I expect to see him in a brace next week. If it were up to me I might sit him tho

I think they should go with Cousins at least next week and give Griff time to heal. We need him as close to 100% as possible if we want to do anything more than make the playoffs

the guy is tough....he will play next week.....we might lose to the browns next week without rg3...cuz the browns are no walkover....they are good despite their record.

I think we need to win out if you are thinking playoffs. Personally, 7/8,8/8/,9/7 is all I could hope for in the start of the season.

I agree with cowboykillerz and Bob: sit Robert Griffin a week. Ugly injury, and we want the young man to play for many years. ..not just the next game.

Then again the Ravens are no walkover either. We will spend more time trying to beat a division rival. Griff will be there.

If its a sprain as being reported, that usually means there is some ligament damage. Like somebody said above, since the knee wasn't planted maybe we got lucky and the ligaments were only stretched. They could also be slightly torn or completely torn which is the worst case. This kid is our future and he should not play at all if there is indeed ligament damage of any kind.

This up coming MRI will seal this seasons fate no doubt about it.

For sure but.... Look at Big Ben. That guy would play with one arm and one leg. This season could be over shortly or RG can play and extend it for a while. Every single game is a play off game for now on. He needs to play.

Love the poise of Cousins too. He stood in pocket with FULL rush in his face and threw a NICE TD to Garcon.

In my mind......I called a QB run up the gut, and Cousins DID JUST THAT.

Love our QBs. Hope and Pray that RGIII will be ok.

That was one wicked hit. I hope it is just a sprain or strain.

You could tell how badly RG3 wanted to win that game.
