Robert Griffin III's MRI revealed no major ligament damage and his injury has been classified as a right knee sprain, according to the Redskins.

"Your positive vibes and prayers worked people!!!!" Griffin tweeted. "To God be the Glory!"

Griffin suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of Washington's 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens Sunday. Haloti Ngata caught Griffin's right leg as the latter scrambled for a first down. Griffin returned after taking one play off, but left the game after four more plays. Kirk Cousins led the Redskins to victory in relief.

"I'm not a doctor, but I know what an ACL feels like," Griffin said to reporters before undergoing the MRI, referring to the torn ACL he suffered while at Baylor. "And it doesn't feel like an ACL. If I felt that, I'd be pretty nervous. But we won the game, everybody's praying for me, I feel pretty good right now about the whole situation. I'm not too nervous, but I'll definitely be praying during the MRI."

Head coach Mike Shanahan will provide an update on Griffin Monday.
