The Redskins captured their fourth consecutive victory, but it came at the expense of their sensational signal-caller. During Washington's 31-28 overtime win over the Ravens on Sunday, Robert Griffin III suffered a knee injury and was forced to leave the game. After taking a massive hit late in the contest, Griffin hung in there for a few plays, failing to put any weight on his hobbled leg. He was eventually replaced by fellow rookie Kirk Cousins, who delivered a clutch touchdown pass and subsequent two-point conversion to send the game into OT. Early reports have called RG3's injury a right knee strain, and he was spotted on the sideline donning a bulky brace. What's encouraging is that he stuck around to offer support to Cousins and his teammates, smiling and high-fiving the bunch. Griffin, who finished with 280 total yards and a touchdown, will almost certainly undergo further testing within the next 24 hours. The Redskins travel to Cleveland in Week 15.
