             === RG3 to see Dr. Andrews for more tests on knee ===
 
 Ashburn,  VA (Sports Network) - Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin
 III  will fly to  Birmingham, Ala., to see Dr. James Andrews for more tests on
 his injured right knee.
 
 Coach  Mike Shanahan  made the  announcement Monday,  just one  day after  the
 Redskins'  quarterback  was forced out  of his team's first-round playoff loss
 due to the injury.
 
 In  the fourth quarter of Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Griffin
 could  not handle  a bad snap and  his right knee, which he previously injured
 during the Redskins' second possession of the game, buckled under him while he
 scrambled for the loose ball.
 
 Griffin  remained  on the ground for  several minutes before getting up on his
 own power and walking off the field. He did not return.
 
 According  to  Shanahan, Griffin is going  for more exams because there was an
 issue  distinguishing between  old  and  new injuries  in  a  knee that's  had
 previous ACL and LCL injuries.
 
 Shanahan said that "everything right now is total speculation."
 
 Griffin  originally injured his right knee in a Week 15 win over the Baltimore
 Ravens  and  sat out  in Week  16. Griffin  returned to  action and guided the
 Redskins  to a 28-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys and the NFC East crown in the
 regular-season finale.
