RGIII injury update: Redskins QB has knee strain, wearing a brace

USA TODAY Sports

The electric rookie strained his right knee in Sunday's overtime win over the Ravens

Robert Griffin III has been lighting the world on fire with his play lately - but all of that suddenly screeched to a halt at FedEx field on Sunday.

The second overall pick sprained his right knee in a 31-28 overtime win over the Ravens, hurting his knee on a scramble during what would turn out to be the game-tying drive in the fourth quarter.

Griffin tried to hobble his way through a few more plays, but was forced to wait on the sideline in a knee brace during the final seconds of the fourth quarter and overtime before Kai Forbath's game-winning kick flew through the uprights.

Griffin's injury came on a play when he scrambled up the field and fell to his left, flipping his leg into the air and exposing his knee to a hit from a falling Haloti Ngata.

Here's a GIF of the hit:

With the win, Washington is now 7-6 and in the thick of the NFC East and Wild Card races - but how far they can go without RG3 and his electric arm and feet is definitely in doubt.
