LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has left Washington's game against the Atlanta Falcons in the third quarter after being hit in the helmet on a sack.
The Heisman Trophy winner and No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft was slammed into by Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon on a third-and-goal play with about six minutes left in the third quarter.
Griffin stayed on the turf, face-down, for a few moments. He was checked on by team trainers before walking over to the Redskins' sideline with his helmet off.
Sitting on a sideline bench, Griffin was attended to by trainers. After a few minutes, he was escorted to the tunnel leading to the Redskins' locker room.
Another rookie quarterback, fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins, took over on Washington's next possession.
