Barely 12 hours after many players left FedEx Field, they were back at Redskins Park to clean out their locker stalls. 

But the player more than a dozen reporters were waiting for – quarterback Robert Griffin III – did not come through the locker room, at least not during the portion open to the media. 

RG3, however, was at the facility and meeting with the team's medical staff, according to special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander.

“I’ve seen him,” Alexander said. “He’s in training room getting treatment. Looks fine, spirits are up. Just trying to get healthy now.”

It’s unclear if Griffin sustained any additional damage to his ailing right knee when it bent awkwardly in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ season-ending 24-14 loss to the Seahawks. Griffin did not return to the game, and afterward, Coach Mike Shanahan said the star rookie would have an MRI to assess the structural integrity of the joint.

“He’s just trying to get healthy now,” Alexander said. “Getting healthy is his main priority right now.”

It's unclear at this point whether RG3 has had the MRI, but it's possible Shanahan will have an update when he speaks to reporters at 3 p.m. So stay tuned.
