Robert Griffin III Injury Update: Redskins QB leaves preseason game

New, comments
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

RG3 just cannot stay healthy.  The Washington Redskins quarterback had to leave tonight's preseason game with a possible "head injury and right side stinger" according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.  It might be a good idea for the Redskins to put him on the shelf until the season starts.

Griffin still has a lot of upside from a fantasy perspective.  He has a great arm and receivers like Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson that can get behind the defense for big plays.  They also have a very productive running back in Alfred Morris, but even with all of that, RG3 is pretty much undraftable just because of his inability to stay on the field.

He was already 25th among quarterbacks in average draft position.  That means he is going undrafted in pretty much every league except for those that play 2 quarterbacks (and he is probably a 3rd quarterback even in those leagues).  Ryan Fitzpatrick is being drafted ahead of Griffin III.
