Update: Robert Griffin III (knee) is expected to play next week at home versus the Chargers. As we previously reported he was cleared to return to the game Sunday, but was held out as a precaution.
Although Griffin was cleared to return to action on Sunday, the Redskins didn't want to take any chances with their franchise quarterback. However, had the game not turned into a blowout, Griffin would have likely finished out the contest. As reported, Griffin is expected to play in Week 9, and has a great matchup against a Chargers defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks through seven games.
