Play or Sit: the coaches' quandary Print

 NEW YORK (AP) - At some point, an injured player, even a star like Robert Griffin III, is too hampered to help a team. Deciding when is enough is the biggest issue.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has come under fire in the wake of Griffin reinjuring his right knee in Sunday's 24-14 wild-card loss to Seattle. The criticism has ranged from whether Shanahan cared enough for his sensational rookie to whether the natural protocol for dealing with injuries was followed.
Coaches who have been in such testy situations say solutions aren't so complicated. Super Bowl winner Tony Dungy suggests ``if you ask the player, it means nothing. You have to rely on the doctors.''
Adds Herm Edwards: ``You never put a player in harm's way.''
