Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) — The Washington Redskins (1-1) dominated Jacksonville, 41-10 on Sunday, but did it without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III. The third-year signal caller was carted off the field after suffering a dislocated ankle in the first quarter.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played admirably in relief, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars (0-2).

Griffin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, but could miss the remainder of the season.

“I’m just trying to stay in a good place,” said Griffin. “Our spirits are high. We’re always thinking positive. We’ll see what happens tomorrow and whatever information comes out, we’ll know what the timetable is from there.”

This marks the second time in his career that Griffin faces a potential season-ending injury. In 2012, Griffin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, forcing him to miss the final four games of the regular season.

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is good to go on Sunday and is looking forward to playing in his first NFL regular season game against the Washington Redskins.

Clowney will have a tough task at hand in running down quarterback Robert Griffin III.

“One of the best running quarterbacks in the league I think,” Clowney said of RG3. “You gotta be ready to contain him in the pocket because he can get out there and cause havoc, he can run pretty fast.”

“I’m just treating it like another game,” the first-overall pick said Thursday. “Just go out there and take one play at a time and just do my assignment.”

Clowney said his entire family will be in attendance, but he isn’t worried about any added pressure during his regular season debut.

“I’m not really nervous, I’m just ready to get to it,” Clowney said.  “Something I’ve been waiting for my whole life.”

Clowney missed the final two preseason games, but had three tackles for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hit in the first two games against the Cardinals and Falcons.

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

NFL Shield(ASHBURN, Va.) — Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was suspended for the first two games of the season by the NFL on Monday.

The punishment comes after another helmet-to-helmet hit from Meriweather on Baltimore’s Torrey Smith over the weekend.

“Meriweather delivered a forceful blow to the head and neck area of a defenseless receiver with no attempt to wrap up or make a conventional tackle of this player,” said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent in a statement.

Meriweather said after the game on Saturday that he did not believe there was anything wrong with the hit on Smith.

“I’m trying to do what the NFL asked me after going through the offseason, and working on the things I need to work on, and the first chance I get, it seems like I failed,” he said.

Meriweather has been fined five different times by the league over the course of his career, including a $42,000 fine for a hit on Packers running back Eddie Lacy in 2013. The safety was also suspended two games last year, but had it reduced to one game following an appeal.
