Robert Griffin III says knee feels fine, just a scare

Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III apparently emerged unscathed with just a scare as his left knee was examined and determined to not be damaged seriously.

At first, it looked bad as he was hit by Denver Broncos defensive lineman Terrance Knighton.

According to the Washington Post, Knighton wasn't even limping after the game, although he didn't go back in the game. Griffin has had his right knee reconstructed twice.

“The knee feels fine,” Griffin said. “I’m not sure which D-tackle it was. I think it was Knighton, who came in and landed all 300-plus pounds of himself on my leg and I think it really just scared me. After the docs checked me, I was fine and ready to go back in the game. I talked with Mike [Shanahan] and Kirk [Cousins]was out there already, and we just thought it was smart to keep me off the field and just be ready to go next week.”
