04:59 PM ET 12.09 | The Battle of the Beltway was one of the better games on Sunday, but for Redskins fans the win and specifically the last minute of the game was bitter sweet. Robert Griffin III is continuing to make a serious case for Rookie of the Year but Redskins fans everywhere held their collective breaths when RGIII went down and out late in the game. While trying to rally the Redskins back into the game, Griffin III went down and had to leave the game with what is now being called a sprained knee. RGIII did not return to the game and instead backup Kirk Cousins came in and led Washington back to not only tie the game but eventually to the win. There was a false report floating around from a fake Adam Schefter Twitter account that said Griffin III had torn his ACL, but that bogus report was quickly followed by the truth.

This kid has to learn to slide.

He's a phenomenal talent but even RGIII is useless on the bench.

That's the problem with RGIII; He's going to run and he's going to get hit hard.

He's just lucky the Redskins outbid the Browns for his draft rights.

Because he'd get broken in half playing in the AFC North.

East Division is starting to get interesting.... Cousins was a good pick up by the Skins with RG3 running the way he does.

He's an unbelievable talent...just not going to be big enough to take the hits. Just the way that position is.

Bad news for Skins.ROY will be between Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck.

Luck has it cinched.

He would be great returning punts or playing WR.

GGGGGGGGGGGGGGMen!! Jets!

No surprise here. QBs that can run shouldn't run so much. I don't even how he got hurt. But he runs too much that he's going to hurt himself probably sooner than later.

Heal up RG3 and get back in there. The nfl is more fun with you playing.

RGIII still thinks he can run the ball like he did in college.

Don't be too sure!!! RGIII has better stats (except total passing yards) to this point of the season!!

He'd have to bulk up a little bit. Probably would cost him some quickness. He's a quarterback and a damn good one...the Redskins are going to have to protect him better and seriously teach him how to get down, slide and get out of bounds. It would be great to watch him for a long while..don't know if we'll get to.

Yeah. He needs to learn to adapt to the pro game if he wants to be successful. When was last time an uber athletic running qb won the super bowl?

Luck could be in the running for ROY and POY.

A division championship would help RGIII's chances. Especially if the Skins win out to clinch it. Crunch time performance at the end of the regular season could be a big factor.

Bitter pill for Skins fans if he is out for any length of time.
