Redskins quarterback Griffin III says his “knee feels fine”

(Sporting Alert) — Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says his knee feels fine after picking up the injury in the defeat to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Griffin III left the game with left knee pain after he was hit by the Broncos’ defensive tackle Terrance Knighton during the 45-21 loss.

However, the star quarterback revealed that his “knee feels fine” after receiving treatment from the medical staff.

“The knee feels fine. I’m not sure which defensive tackle it was came in and landed all 300-plus pounds of himself on my leg,” Griffin III said on the Redskins at www.redskins.com. “I think it just really scared me.

“After I got up and the doctors checked me I was fine, ready to back in the game, talked with [head coach] Mike [Shanahan].

“Just the way the game had gone and Kirk [Cousins] was already out there, it was just smart to keep me off the field and just be ready to go next week.”
