Just about everything went right for the Redskins on Sunday besides one devastating loss to their starting lineup.
ESPN confirms that Robert Griffin III has a dislocated left ankle, an injury that will sideline the Washington Redskins star quarterback indefinitely.
Griffin suffered the injury while running to his right toward the sideline in the first quarter. Even though he was not touched on the play, Griffin fell and landed awkwardly out of bounds and was carted to the locker room. To know the full extent of the injury, Griffin will need an MRI exam which will be taken Monday morning. Another question facing many Redskins fans is Griffin’s recovery time. He is believed to be facing a minimum six to eight week recovery.
It wasn’t all bad for the Redskins as they comfortably beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 41-10. The win snapped a nine-game losing streak dating from last season. It was the team’s first victory since a 30-24 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers in Week 9 of 2013.
