Cowboys LB Sean Lee suffered what looked like a pretty serious injury at OTAs Tuesday when rookie lineman Zack Martin, in an apparent fit of overzealousness, pancaked him while blocking a screen pass.
A visibly angry Lee had to be helped off the field by teammates. Cowboy Nation is, understandably, very concerned about the health of their veteran linebacker.
The serious situation with Lee did not go unnoticed by other players, many of whom took to Twitter to offer their well wishes. Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was especially concerned about Lee and let it be known that he’ll be prevailing upon the almighty on Lee’s behalf.
Put away the rivalry for a minute Prayers sent up for Sean Lee

A lovely gesture by RG3, putting aside the heated Redskins-Cowboys rivalry in the name of the greater brotherhood of football and believers.
Everybody, get down on your knees right now and pray as hard as you can for Sean Lee and his hurt body part. Don’t worry, God hears all the prayers. He won’t forget about the starving children just because you took a few seconds to add Sean Lee to your list.
God cares equally about everyone. Starving kids. Victims of war. Little cancer babies. Football players who got pancaked during illegal offseason contact drills.
RG3 gets it.
