One week after leaving the field with a possible injury, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III would not confirm or deny if he sustained a concussion in the second preseason game against the Detroit Lions.
"My job isn't to give you updates on that stuff so I'm not going to," Griffin told the media on Thursday when asked if he sustained a concussion.
Griffin was injured during a rough first quarter against the Lions. On eight drop backs, RG3 was hit six times, with a number of big hits delivered from defensive lineman. Asked if he will be ready to play Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens in the third preseason game - largely considered the most important of the exhibition season - Griffin again offered little clarity.
"Hopefully I get a chance to go out and play the game that I love," Griffin said.
Jay Gruden spoke before Griffin, and the Redskins head coach said that RG3 will meet with the neurosurgeon Thursday. Assuming Griffin gets cleared, it's fair to expect him to start against the Ravens. What's interesting is the Redskins offensive line struggled against the Lions, and while the return of left tackle Trent Williams should be a big help against Baltimore, the inexperienced right side of the line in Brandon Scherff and Morgan Moses will still face a tough challenge.
"We want to go score points," Griffin said. "I don't know how long we're going to play, that's up to coach."
Asked if he could assign blame for the hits in the Lions game, RG3 said the team watched the film of that game and will look to improve against Baltimore.
"We all look at the film. We don't point the finger," he said. "You watch the film and you assess yourself."
