Mike Shanahan was lying to the collective face of the news media, as football coaches often do—but this time about health precautions taken to ensure the long-term safety of his star player. (Not the first time he's done that this season.) Andrews told USA Today:
"[Griffin] didn't even let us look at him," Andrews said. "He came off the field, walked through the sidelines, circled back through the players, and took off back to the field. It wasn't our opinion.
"We didn't even get to touch him or talk to him. Scared the hell out of me."
Andrews is still scared. Though Griffin has led the Redskins to consecutive wins, he is "still recovering," and the saga has been "a trying moment" for Andrews. As with the past two weeks, Griffin will be wearing a knee brace when he takes the field this afternoon.
