03:26 PM ET 10.07 | The Redskins are about to see what life without Robert Griffin III is like as the rookie sensation left Sunday's game against the Falcons early with an apparent head injury. The injury doesn't appear to be serious but it has certainly given the Redskins a scare and will no doubt give them pause when it come to how they're allowing RGIII to play. Last week Griffin had to throw up his arms on play actions as to not be slammed by Buccaneers defenders. He has also taken his fair share of shots during the first four weeks of the season and it was in the fifth that he has finally broken down.

It's getting where there are tooooo many players getting head injury's, something has got to be done about this.

Perhaps training running QBs to get out of bounds would help.

Getting his face stitched up on the sidelines? Okay, he's a tough guy but still, next time slide,

It would appear the Skins have assumed their rightful place at the bottom of the division. All is right with the world.

How is a not very well knitted fingerless glove going to help?

Agreed. The sideline was less than 2 feet to his right.

He got greedy and tried to pick up a few extra yards while a linebacker was charging at him with a full head of steam.

Note to RGIII: when you try to play like Michael Vick, you'll get injured like Michael Vick.

Umh.....I thougt the Giants was suppose to be looking up to the Skins, Boys, & Eagles.....How's that workin out fa ya so far?

OBTW, what ever happen to all that genius talk surrounding Shanny and that brat kid OC of his. Snyder is going to allow this moron to have his future injured? If thats the case then why give up all the draft picks that could've help a great deal to further improve the Skins? Moronic!
