The moment when Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III actually got injured will probably always be a mystery. Some say it was the play when you saw his knee give out.
Mike Shanahan seems to think it was the play before during a pileup. If you ask Griffin III, or actually if you listen to NFL Networks “Sound FX,” RG3 can be heard conversing with offensive tackle Trent Williams.
After completing a 4 yard touchdown pass, Griffin III starts to have concerns about the knee, and addresses them with Williams.
Trent:Are you sure you’re all right, bro?
RG3: Yeah, I’m going to be safe.
Trent: You tweaked it when you were trying to back up?
RG3:Yeah, my foot kind of went wah-wah.
Trent: Did that shock you a little bit?
RG3: Yeah, scared the (expletive) out of me (laughs).
Trent: All right, be smart.
RG3:All right, be smart.
Griffin III eventually went on to tear his LCL and part of his ACL. It played out like a tragic scene from a movie, and you can see the movie in all light on “Sound FX” which aired last night.
