“You’d have to be a complete idiot to think I would overrule our doctors. That’s ludicrous. If someone were to do that, they should be fired,” Shanahan said.
Controversy has swirled over the last 72 hours regarding the Redskins’ handling of Griffin’s knee. First, Dr. James Andrews was quoted as saying Shanahan put Griffin back in the Week 15 game against the Ravens without allowing Andrews to inspect Griffin. Then, Griffin stayed in the game on Sunday against the Seahawks despite clearly being hobbled by his injured knee. Then Griffin ultimately exited the game after injuring the knee again. And then this week Dr. Andrews said his previous comments about Shanahan were misconstrued.
What makes this even funnier to me, is remembering how Shanarat handled Brian Griese in Denver, making him go back in with an injured shoulder. It seems to me and others, that Shanny puts his career above the careers and health of his players.
Griese's injury is officially listed as a separated AC joint. The Broncos said they aren't likely to know about their quarterback's availability for Sunday's game against San Diego until later in the week.
Griese was injured in the first quarter of Denver's 27-24 win against Oakland on Monday night, but he returned to the lineup and helped engineer the victory.
"We won't know for a couple of days the exact extent of the injury," head coach Mike Shanahan said. "We'll wait to see how sore he is."
It is little wonder why the Redskins drafted RGIII and Kirk Cousins with Shanarat as their HC.
