RG3 Injury Update

Posted By Mercedes Green On Jan 8 2013 @ 9:07 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

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.
