Robert Griffin III's injury definitely has sports fans and RG3 supporters talking about what should have been done.
Some say Coach Shanahan should have pulled him out of the game, while others even accuse Griffin of lying about how hurt he was. But those who know him well in Central Texas say his competitiveness kept him in the game.
The hosts over at ESPN Radio Central Texas say Robert Griffin has always been a tough competitor a no one on that sideline was going to get him off that field.
"The story is not Washington losing the game, it's Washington losing its franchise quarterback," says David Smoak, with ESPN Radio. Robert Griffin III had a painful to watch injury Sunday against the Seahawks. And sports fans couldn't help but share their opinions.
"The coach has got to take responsibility and go ahead and make that decision regardless of what the doctor said," said one caller. "A players going to play and he's going to stay in there as long as he can," said another.
Smoak says there's a double standard. Many supported the decision to keep him in the game when the Redskins were up. "Everyone is talking about how courageous is this. And then all of the sudden he starts playing poorly, they lose, and people are saying, 'It's stupid that he played.' Its damned if you do, damned if you don't," says Smoak.
And now there's reports saying he may have torn his ACL and LCL. Something that could take at the very least 6 months to heal.
The sports medicine doctor who treated RG3 when he was at Baylor believes Griffin stayed in after weighing all the pros and cons. "I don't consider him to be at all someone who would do something reckless, you know I have faith in the decisions that he made," says Dr. Jon Ellis, an Orthopedic Sports Medicine Specialist.
While Smoak says he's an athlete you just can't stop. "It's his career, it's his body, and quite frankly if he wanted to play, who's going to take him out?"
