Robert Griffin III's knee is 'sore,' but 'fine'

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's left knee injury isn't regarded as serious enough to prevent him from practicing this week.

And Redskins coach Mike Shanahan announced Monday that Griffin's knee isn't bad at all with team doctor Chris Annunziata telling him the injury is "fine, little bit sore right now. That's about it."

Griffin just got a scare when defensive tackle Terrance Knighton fell on top of him.

"I think it just scared me," said Griffin, who was replaced by Kirk Cousins and didn't go back in the game, a loss to the Denver Broncos.

"We made a decision that I was fine and that I could go back in the game," Griffin said. "We all made the decision that it was just time to keep me out."
