Injury To Redskins RGIII Could Impact National TV Slate For NFL

The NFL has already reached out to the Redskins to ask if they feel QB Robert Griffin III will be back for the start of the season.

Why, you may ask. Well, the league wants to know so they can try and cram as many Redskins games on National TV as possible with one of the leagues bright young stars and Rookie of the Year.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Redskins have told the league they are uncertain when to expect Griffin back and they will not know until sometime this summer.

TV networks also have asked the NFL if it’s possible to wait on any nationally televised games that involve the Redskins until they can have a better idea when Griffin might return from his knee injury.

But those answers won’t be known before the NFL’s regular-season schedule is released in April.
