Playoff highlights... an injury

Sunday's game in Washington, D.C. as the Redskins hosted the Seattle Seahawks, was the best game of the weekend.

It also had the most intrigue, as a pre-game report indicated that the home team's star quarterback — rookie Robert Griffin III, the second pick of the 2012 draft, who excited fans with highlights and provided promise by leading his team to the playoffs — had not been checked out before he returned to a game earlier this year when he injured his knee, according to a report in USA TODAY.

Griffin is the future of the team and he ended up missing at least a game or two. So just as they are kicking off on Sunday, this story is up and people are talking. Did he get rushed back? Did he ignore a problem in his leg? Is the team and the player risking their futures?

And sure enough, late on Sunday, Griffin was hurt. He wasn't even hit when he went down. It looked painful. And he missed the bad snap and couldn't reach it, leading to a fumble and turn over deep in their own territory when already down by one touchdown and time running out.

And sure enough, just like that, the game and season ended for the Redskins.
