Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was getting blown up by the Denver Broncos defense all day, but one hit at the end of the game by Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was all the Redskins needed to pull him from the game.

Griffin took a huge shot to his ribs and was obviously shaken up on the play, so it is unlikely that he would have been able to take much more punishment.

Here is a GIF of the hit:

Griffin grabbed his knee as soon as he hit the ground, which makes you wonder if he came back from his knee injury too early. I would say yes, considering his terrible start to the season.

You never like to see your quarterback take these kind of hits, so the Redskins offensive line needs to take a long look in the mirror and make sure that it never happens again.

    He was holding his left knee, not his right, so that little rant about coming back too early is moot. The guy just came off surgery and rehab, so i don’t know why so many people are suprised he’s a little off. The redskins staff did the right thing this time by taking him out. Let’s just hope it’s nothing major.
