Robert Griffin III Injury: No Ligament Tear Thankfully, Knee Sprain With No Timetable For Return Yet

The worst case scenario when Robert Griffin III took the hit below has been avoided. The team has announced that a MRI revealed no ligament tears to his right knee, calling it a knee sprain. Robert Griffin III just tweeted out “Your positive vibes and prayers worked people!!!! To God be the Glory!”

He still may miss at least a game. We’ll find that out as the week progresses and he deals with the swelling from his leg doing that (points below). Very fortunate that he did not sustain either a broken fibula or serious knee ligament damage beyond a sprain with the way that leg whipped around after Ngata’s hit. Great news as well.
