RG3's knee 'a little sore' after Bronco's game, Shanahan says

(WJLA) - According to Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, Robert Griffin III’s knee is "just a little sore today" following the pounding RGIII took Sunday.

As for the rest of the players, they're still trying to digest Sunday's downer in Denver.

“I really can’t put it into words, It all happened so fast”, said Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

Somehow, the Redskins went from up 21-7 - to down 24 points, and seemingly in a blur. Even veteran linebacker London Fletcher is puzzled.

“I can’t remember another scenario where I’ve been involved in a game where a team scored 38 unanswered points”, said Fletcher.

Why the Redskins abandoned the run - which had worked so well into the third quarter? That's still up for debate.

“We didn’t convert on third downs, we weren’t able to move the ball like we were in the first half, and it came back and bit us in the butt”, said running back Alfred Morris, who rushed for a game-high 93 yards.

And the defense - which held the Broncos at bay for much of the game - finally broke down when it mattered most.

“This is the seventh game in the season and we still haven’t (played) a 60-minute game.”, said Fletcher.

While some Redskins returned home with jerseys exchanged from their Broncos counterparts, none - to a man – left with a so-called ‘moral’ victory. They’ll wait for the real kind - whenever that happens next. Said veteran wide receiver Santana Moss: “I don't know… me telling you what we can do or what we should do.. isn’t going to win games.”
