After watching ┬áRobert Griffin III’s knee completely give out after trying to recover a fumbled snap, most would assume he tore the lateral collateral ligament on that play.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan says that’s not the case, and making it worse, he most likely hurt it the play before while being sacked by the Seahawks Bruce Irvin according to NFL Network.

Shanahan told Andrea Kremer, the video of the injury gave him a sickening feeling, but that there was no way to know he had been hurt and no available time to examine Griffin III.

Shanahan also told Kremer that he leans on his medical staff to make a determination about a player’s health.

“You’d have to be a complete idiot to think that I would overrule our doctors. … That’s ludicrous. If someone were to do that, they should be fired.”

Griffin III will have total reconstructive surgery of his knee today and will be out 6-8 months.
