RG3: "I'll be playing next week"

It appears that Robert Griffin III is going to be OK after injuring his knee during the Redskins’ win over the Ravens.

Team spokesman Tony Wyllie told reporters that the MRI on the quarterback’s right knee is “all clear” and that he has a “sprained” knee.

There were concerns that Griffin might have a torn ACL or other such serious damage after he was hit while scrambling late in the fourth quarter. But Wyllie said that there was no such damage to the knee.  

Coach Mike Shanahan will give further information on the injury during his news conference at 3:00 p.m. on Monday.

Update: Chick Hernandes of Comcast SportsNet is reporting that Griffin suffered no ligamant damage and had a contusion to the knee.
