Saints quarterback Ryan Griffin hit with bottle, needed 50 stitches in his face

New Orleans Saints backup quarterback Ryan Griffin was struck in the face with a champagne bottle and needed more than 50 stitches to address facial lacerations after an argument at a New Orleans nightclub. "We are aware of the situation, and the matter is under investigation," Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. "Ryan has been exemplary as a Saint and he has our full support." Griffin got attacked last week. He practiced Tuesday. "Mr. Griffin said that his friends told him that they believed it was a champagne bottle because the contents were sprayed all over them when he was struck with the bottle," a police report stated.
