RGIII Injury: Redskins QB leaves game with knee injury, out for rest of game

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III injured his knee trying to recover a bad snap with 6:25 to play in the fourth quarter against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card game at FedEx Field. Griffin, who was already not 100 percent healthy for the game, had his knee bend the wrong way as he tried to recover the snap. Griffin fell to the turf and the Seahawks recovered the loose ball at the Washington 5-yard line and eventually got a field goal to increase their lead to 24-14.

Griffin was helped up off the turf and labored off the field flanked by team trainers as he walked to the sideline. Griffin had already been given treatment by team trainers in the first half of the game after taking several shots in the half. Griffin has reportedly been ruled out for the rest of the game and his backup Kirk Cousins will take over at quarterback.
