Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has asked that people not jump to conclusions regarding Jamison Crowder, the rookie wide receiver who was accused on social media of domestic violence.
“We don’t know what’s going on or what’s happening,” Griffin told WRC4 on Thursday night at a charity event hosted by wide receiver Pierre Garçon. “But I just ask everybody to hold judgment. He’s a young kid and we don’t know what the true details of the situation are.”
Griffin added: “We support him as our teammate, and we pray that it’s not true and move on from there. But right now, we don’t know. ...We don't really much about that situation so it's hard to comment on it.”
Earlier Thursday, a screen grab from Crowder’s own Instagram account circulated on the internet containing photos of a woman with bruises and a cut lip. The pictures were accompanied by detailed comment in which someone accused Crowder of domestic violence. The post has since been removed.
Crowder’s agent Tory Dandy told ESPN.com that his client "hasn't hit anybody" and that his social media accounts had been hacked. Crowder's Twitter page has been shut down.
The team and the NFL issued statements saying they were aware of the situation but would have no further comment at this time.
The Redskins had an OTA practice Thursday and Crowder was present. The team, however, was off Friday.
Griffin said that because the report came out after Thursday's practice, he had not spoken to Crowder.
“We just had practice,” Griffin said. “Obviously, that report came out [Thursday afternoon]. We don’t know much about it. We’re just all out here trying to do what we can to help Pierre for his charity event.”
