If you've been on Twitter the last few minutes, you've seen that Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III injured his left leg in a non-contact play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Initial speculation suggested that it was his knee, the one that he didn't hurt two years ago, but the Redskins are now saying that it is his ankle. That's what it looked like to me from the outset.
I'll update this thread as more information becomes available. I'm generally relieved that it isn't the knee, but it's entirely possible that it might actually be his Achilles or the ankle, and those don't heel quickly if there is significant damage. That's just speculation, though.
Thumbs up from Robert Griffin. Here's to hoping RG3 is alright. pic.twitter.com/Ll1U5Sdt1z— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) September 14, 2014
