The first MRI’s on RG3′s right knee they are calling “inconclusive” because they do see partial tears of both the ACL and LCL but are calling it so because they don’t know if it’s new or his previous ACL injury in 2009 when he had surgery. He will be travelling down to Florida today to consult with Dr. James Andrews, who has been involved with Griffin’s knee injuries. I’m assuming exploratory surgery will be done to see just how bad it is, but I need to prepare myself and all you Redskins fans out there that this will be a long and hard journey back to the RG3 we saw in November. Surgery makes the most sense since he’s so young so 2013 season may have to be sacrificed.
However, nothing is for sure yet, so let’s see what happens. It’s clear the first knee injury was not a “sprain” as was reported. If Cousins continued the season yes the Skins might be a 2nd place team, but we would have RG3 starting training camp with a healthier non-torn knee. It’s also assumed RG3 will not play in the Pro Bowl but should attend as he was voted and deserves to be there.
HTTR and HTRG3!

Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
