The NFLPA made an informal inquiry into the Washington Redskins' handling of Robert Griffin III's knee injury on Jan. 8. The Redskins faced much scrutiny after conflicting media reports about the communication between coach Mike Shanahan and Dr. James Andrews.
After Dr. Andrews and the Redskins handed over a detailed report on the process of sideline reviews, NFLPA director DeMaurice Smith seemed satisfied with the results:
"Playing through pain is a harsh reality of our business and our union will always hold the League and the clubs accountable to the best medical care. Our thoughts are with Robert as he recovers from his surgery and we hope he returns to full strength."
Griffin suffered a sprained LCL back in Week 15 of the regular season. He attempted to play through the injury in the Wild Card round, but suffered partially torn LCL and ACL ligaments after his knee buckled on a shoddy FedEx turf. Griffin had surgery Wednesday and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2013 season.
The NFLPA does not plan any further action at this moment.
