Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III pointed to his own gruesome injury to defend Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson after four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick suggested Sunday that he should play through his injury during the playoffs.
Jackson, 26, revealed on Twitter Thursday that he suffered a PCL grade 2 sprain "on the borderline of a strain 3" and was still dealing with inflammation in his knee, meaning he would be absent from Sunday night’s wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
During FOX’s pregame show Saturday, Vick encouraged Jackson to "put a brace on it" and "get it going."
"It’s the playoffs. You’re three games away. Put a brace on it. Get it going. Put a brace on it. Let’s go," Vick said. "I played a whole season with a sprained MCL."
But on Sunday, Griffin cautioned against Vick’s advice.
