Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had X-rays done on his ribs following Sundayâs game to ensure that he hadnât broken them, and results were negative.
Griffin took a shot while dropping back a pass play early in the game. He was slow getting up, but didnât leave the game. Griffin took another hard shot later in the game on a fourth-quarter run that ended with him going airborne while being sandwiched by two Panthers defenders. He jumped right up after the play.
Â But almost immediately after the game ended, he went in to be X-rayed after he reported soreness in his left side.
Â Griffin and Coach Mike Shanahan said that the quarterback and the team learned that he is suffering from sore ribs, but that there are not fractures.
Â âIâm fine. Iâll be ready to go,â Griffin said after the game. âNo one is ever going to question the fight I have inside myself to be the greatest and to help this team to victory. It doesnât matter what it is, I will make sure that I continue to help my team win games and that it starts right after the bye.â
