Much has been made of the Washington Redskins' attempts to keep Robert Griffin III unharmed during the exhibition season, and Team Shanahan had managed to do a good job during the first two games of the 2012 preseason. Then, early in Saturday's game against the Colts, this happened:
Just a note for Mo Hurt: allowing linebackers to light up your prized rookie quarterback in game three of the preseason is not exactly a way to impress coaches. This offensive line just might get RGIII killed before the season is over. Or the rookie may rush for 1,000 yards in a valiant attempt to stay upright as he escapes collapsed pockets. Only time will tell.
