There's plenty of concern that Robert Griffin III's aggressive style of running could get him injured, and we got a terrifying example of exactly why on Sunday, when RG3 took a monster shot from Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon in the red zone.
Griffin rolled right out of the pocket, took off running down the sideline and began to slide, but not before Weatherspoon absolutely rocked him. Griffin lay on the ground in pain but got up fairly quickly and was moving around.
The Redskins quarterback was taken to the locker room to be checked out for a concussion, per the Fox crew calling the game. Griffin returned to the sideline, but it was Kirk Cousins who took over for the Redskins on the next drive. The Redskins announced that Griffin was "shaken up" and questionable to return. More on that ridiculous classification later.
Griffin wasn't the only star rookie quarterback to take a big shot on Sunday either. Andrew Luck got absolutely rocked by Packers rookie Nick Perry in the Colts-Packers game.
Perry was flagged for the hit, as he led with his helmet.
