Every armchair quarterback in America is discussing Mike Shanahan’s decision not to pull an obviously injured RGIII in Washington’s 24-14 loss to Seattle.

Griffin appeared to re-aggravate his right knee sometime in the first half, and it got worse from there.  The final straw was a bad snap in the fourth quarter that led to Griffin twisting his knee and possibly tearing something.

The Washington Post is reporting that Griffin suffered partial tears in his ACL and LCL.  Tomorrow, Griffin is expected to meet with famed orthopedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, for further evaluation.

Griffin suffered a torn ACL on the same knee while at Baylor in 2009.  Griffin and the Redskins hope he won’t need reconstructive surgery that could force him to possibly miss time next season.
