Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had X-rays done to ensure he hadn't broken his ribs following Sunday's loss to Carolina, results were negative.
“I’m fine. I’ll be ready to go,” Griffin said after the game via The Washington Post. “No one is ever going to question the fight I have inside myself to be the greatest and to help this team to victory. It doesn’t matter what it is, I will make sure that I continue to help my team win games and that it starts right after the bye.”
Griffin took several hard shots Sunday and was sacked four times. On a fourth quarter run Griffin went airborne and was sandwiched by two Panthers players.
Griffin will have an extra week to rest his sore ribs as the Redskins have a bye.
