Local bookies saw that Robert Griffin III, very famous QB for the Washington Redskins who is otherwise known as RG3, suffered an injury to the ankle and was out of the Redskins’ game on Sunday against the Jaguars. Now the player’s fans wonder how bad his injury is, and they seriously hope that it won’t let him miss other games this season, as it’s no secret that he’s one of the most important pieces that the Redskins currently have.
RG3 was being chased by linebacker Paul Poslusz in the game’s first quarter when he was injured while making what was a very acrobatic throw close to the sidelines, and now many fans are very concerned about the player’s status for upcoming games, especially after they saw how he landed after throwing the pass. The player landed on his ankle after finishing the pass, and then he ended up falling out of bounds. DeSean Jackson was the one who caught the pass for a gain of 11 yards.
RG3’s leg was put in a splint after the injury. The player saluted, waved, and gave the crowd a thumbs-up sign while he was taken off the field along the sidelines and then down the tunnel. Soon after the player’s injury, Washington said that the player wouldn’t return to action during the game, and many fans hope that this won’t affect his status for other games as well.
Griffin was replaced by Kirk Cousins and two plays later he threw a TD pass.
But then things got even more complicated for the Redskins, as Jackson’s left shoulder was hurt, and the player had no choice but to go straight to the locker room to be evaluated. The Redskins said that the player’s status was questionable, and now many local bookies hope that these injuries don’t get in the way of the team’s displays this season, but it’s difficult to assume that their games will be unaffected, considering how important these players are to the team.
The NFL world hopes that the injuries suffered by Griffin and Jackson don’t prove to be too serious, and wish them a very quick recovery.
