The NFL has fined the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills $20,000 each for violating league procedures on reporting injuries.
The injuries involved Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and Bills defensive end Mario Williams.
Washington was fined for not properly updating media on Griffin's status during the Oct. 7 game against Atlanta after he left with a head injury that turned out to be a mild concussion. Coach Mike Shanahan had described Griffin as being ''shaken up.''
The Bills failed to list Williams on the injury report while he was being treated for a sprained left wrist. Williams said Oct. 3 that the wrist had been bothering him and limiting his effectiveness. The league said he should have been on the injury report; he has been the last two weeks.

Robert Griffin III has apparently earned the respect of Osi Umenyiora.

However, as the two NFC East teams get ready to battle on Sunday, Umenyiora is giving Griffin some...
That, via the Redskins’ Instagram account, is a Robert Griffin III tattoo, among many, many other Redskins- and animal-themed tattoos. More specifically, it’s a Griffining tattoo, which is a bold statement, though perhaps not so bold as a Joe Theismann tattoo.
And this is your open thread for the Redskins’ first NFC East game of the 2012 season. It’s kind of a big one.
