RG3 under pressure, pre-injury (USA Today Sports Images)

The Redskins pulled off a remarkable comeback win on Sunday against the Ravens, but the game's outcome was overshadowed by a brutal injury to Washington's franchise quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

On second-and-19, inside the final two minutes of regulation, Griffin scrambled for a 13-yard gain, but he took a wicked hit from 340-pound Haloti Ngata at the end of the run, directly on his right knee. Here's a clip of the play. (Warning: It's nasty).

Griffin was unable to put weight on his right leg following the hit, yet he somehow remained in the game for four more plays, passing for another 37 yards. He was forced to the sideline eventually and replaced by Kirk Cousins, who completed the improbable comeback.

Here's Mike Shanahan postgame, discussing RG3's knee:

"It's sore right now. He wanted to go back in the game, so that's a positive."

Griffin is headed for a Sunday evening MRI. For now, the team is calling it a sprain. Griffin himself doesn't think he's dealing with an ACL injury, for whatever that's worth. Let's hope his self-diagnosis is accurate.
