Robert Griffin, Jay Cutler headline Week 14?s injury roundup (Shutdown Corner)
We begin our injury roundup with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin, who suffered a right knee injury during the game-tying drive in the fourth quarter of a 31-28 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens. The first-round pick out of Baylor underwent an MRI on Sunday night, which the team announced show no ligament damage. Griffin's status for next Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns will be determined later in the week. If Griffin is unable to play, fourth round pick Kirk Cousins would make his first NFL start. Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a neck injury during his team's 21-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Cutler was hit in the head by Vikings defensive end Everson Griffin with his head snapping back rather violently. Despite the hit, Cutler would remain in the game for several plays, which is surprising considering the veteran missed a game in the middle of last month due to a concussion. Other injuries we'll be monitoring this week: Bears kicker Robbie Gould strained his left calf during pregame warmups, which thrust punter Adam Podlesh into kickoff duties. Bears first round defensive end Shea McClellin injured his knee in the first half and would not return. Not only did the Ravens lose to the Redskins, right guard Marshal Yanda was lost to a sprained right ankle. Veteran Bobbie Williams replaced Yanda and would presumably do so if Yanda is forced to miss games moving forward. The Ravens got good news when x-rays on linebacker Jameel McClain's neck were negative. With Ray Lewis on "Injured Reserve-Designated to Return" and Dannell Ellerbe out with a foot injury, the Ravens were down to first-year player Josh Bynes on Sunday.
