chance of a little tiny thunderstorm, not a huge deal, low 90s on monday, better chance for storms and tuesday, wednesday, thursday nice, in the 80s. we began today with some questions about the redskins offensive line and they were answered tonight but not in the way anyone wanted. >> no. and we saw men down. >> man down. we didn't see really anything good from the first team offense. of course, trent williams was out on the left side with a foot injury so, willie smith really taking a beating there, but brandon scherff and william moses just could not protect rg3. it was a rough game for him. coach gruden was hoping to see more progress from his offense. instead they lost their starting quarterback for the time being, th
now wusa9 game on sports with kristen berset brought to you by xfinity. >> oh, the hits just kept on coming again and again. preseason game no. 2, we're already talking about an injury to robert griffin, iii. all in all tonight the first team offense was bad. they had no rhythm whatsoever and griffin paid the price for that. griffin got hit early and often
tonight in their first home game of the season. first drive 2nd and 11, griffin gets sacked by tyron walker. he fumbles the ball, but they get it back. rookie brandon scherff kind of got bowled over there. second redskins possession griffin gets the ball out in time, but just gets drilled, a little rattled, a little slow to get up not surprisingly. they would punt again. 2nd quarter griffin still out there, 3rd and 16 griffin fumbles the ball, tries to fall on it but gets hit on the ground and now he wasn't getting up. afterwards coach jay gruden told us griffin does not have a shoulder injury, so that's good news, but he does have a concussion and is going through the protocol. gruden was also asked why he sent griffin back out for that fourth series. here's his answer. >> we weren't doing that well on offense. i want to try to get something going on offense. there's a lot of quarterbacks play into the 2nd quarter in the preseason game. football is a tough sport. we wanted to get something
going offensively and unfortunately it didn't work out. >> did not work out, but, of course, he wanted to see some progress that he did not get. on to baseball, the national came into tonight 3 1/2 games back of the mets trying to close that gap and with new york off tonight the nats have another chance to make up some ground. they are in their final game of the road trip going for a sweep of colorado. they're down 2-0 in the 7th, but here comes michael taylor to the rescue, a two-run shot to tie the game 2-2. bottom of the inning nats bullpen falters. there's a bloop base hit. jose rays scores. orioles opening with the twins and mother nature said not so fast. about an hour later when they began playing, minnesota's bats came alive. right now the twins lead 7-0 in the 7th inning. golf today in greensboro
tiger woods needs a top two finish at the wyndham championship to make the fedex cup playoff. he did himself some favors starting with this holding out from the rough on his very first hole. maybe that was an an omen for a good day because he shot a 6- under 64, best since 2013, but he's two shots off the lead, which mean people shot a 62 today, which is crazy. >> i want to go back to a phrase you used earlier. the nats bullpen falters, maybe the theme of the season. >> that and i tweeted out something about gruden saying something about not getting it going and somebody said is that a macro on your computer? >> nats faltered, redskins offens some of my competitors plan to reduce the use of antibiotics over the next few years.
