The hit heard round the world?! That is what anchors were saying after Robert Griffin III took a hit from an Atlanta Falcons linebacker. His upper body rammed into the helmet of the rookie who doesn’t shy from contact.
Griffin was down and done. A mild concussion, according to Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. The Atlanta Falcons went out on to win a contest 24-17. This win gave the Falcons their first 5-0 start in franchise history.
Fans can assume the next time Robert Griffin III has an opportunity to get out of bounds, he will!
