Robert Griffin III Gets Drilled, Suffers Concussion (Video)

Robert Griffin III sacked concussion

Robert Griffin III may want to tell us that he’s the best quarterback in the NFL, but he’s going to have a hard time proving it if he keeps getting hit like he did during Thursday’s preseason contest against the Detroit Lions.

The 2012 second-overall pick was sacked three times, hit on at least another three occasions, and eventually had to leave the game with a concussion.

If this is an indication of what we should expect from the Redskins’ offensive line, it looks like RG3 could be in for another long season.

Here’s a look at all of the punishment Robert Griffin III endured during his second preseason appearance this year:

On the bright side, Washington did win the game, 21-17.  But if they continue to protect their quarterbacks like they did during the first quarter of Thursday’s game, those victories will be tough to come by once the regular season rolls around.
