The Redskins had several players leave Monday night’s game with various injuries, but none of them were highly serious in nature.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered what Coach Jay Gruden described as a thigh contusion. But Griffin continued playing and is expected to be fine.

Cornerback Tracy Porter left the game with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Left tackle Trent Williams hurt his shoulder during the fourth-and-goal play on which Alfred Morris narrowly missed scoring.

Tight end Niles Paul left the game in the second half after suffering a hand contusion. Paul could have an X-ray on his hand, Gruden said, but the team’s medical staff believes he will be fine.

And linebacker Rob Jackson aggravated a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, two weeks after first suffering the injury.

Gruden said he expected all of the players to be fine.
