RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is tweeting about the decision to play Sunday despite his injured knee.

“Many may question, criticize & think they have all the right answers. But few have been in the line of fire in battle,” Griffin tweeted around 11:00 a.m. Monday.

Some Redskins fans watching Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks were calling for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to remove Griffin from the game due to his knee injury. Griffin was eventually forced from the game late in the fourth quarter when he fell to the ground attempting to recover a fumble.

“I thank God for perspective and because of that I appreciate the support from everyone. I also appreciate the criticism,” Griffin later tweeted.
