RGIII concussion mars win vs. Lions


With zero help from his offensive line, Robert Griffin III repeatedly wound up on the turf until leaving with a concussion after being sacked three times and fumbling twice Thursday night in the host Washington Redskins' 21-17 exhibition victory over the Detroit Lions.

Griffin went 2-for-5 for 8 yards on four possessions for Washington. On his final play, early in the second quarter, he started to scramble but dropped the ball despite no contact. As the quarterback went to the ground to try to corral the loose ball, Lions defensive end Corey Wootton landed on Griffin.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Griffin had a concussion but that the QB's right shoulder, which also was hurt, would be OK. Gruden said he had no idea how long Griffin will be sidelined.
