Follow us on:

Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III was knocked out of the game on a hard hit to the head in the third quarter and the Washington Redskins lost 24-17 to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons in the National Football League.

Griffin, a rookie and the second pick in this year’s NFL draft, was hit by Falcons linebacker Sam Weatherspoon as he tried to run into the end zone on a third-and-goal play from the Atlanta 3.

He did not return to the game and his status was not immediately announced by the Redskins. Atlanta improved to 5-0.

In other early games today, Baltimore won 9-6 at Kansas City in a battle of field goals; the Steelers sacked Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick three times and hit him eight more times in a 16-14 win in Pittsburgh; Eli Manning had three touchdown passes in the New York Giants’ 41-27 victory against the winless Cleveland Browns, and Miami won 17-13 at Cincinnati.
