Why do that if he could play next season? (and be 100% healthy)

Totally premature to talk IR with Robert at this point. I think PUP is more likely. He misses 6 games, which would suck, but with a 100% healthy roster heading into the regular season and potentially that $18M back in cap money, we could be okay with Cousins at the helm for 3/8ths of the year.

I just hope priority 1 is to err on the side of caution with Robert moving forward. Fortunately he's a 22 year old world-class athlete with the best docs in the world at his disposal.

According to ESPN Chris Mortensen RGIII to have complete surgery on Wednesday and expected to be ready for season opener. Recovery time 6-8 months.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

I thought i read somewhere in this thread that a complete tear of the acl was better than a partial tear as far as getting back to 100 %?
Edit: yes Skinzwin posted about the doctor on sirius radio this morning that said surgery isnt possible on the acl unless it is a complete tear? Is this good news? I cant sleep and have to know whether to up my bid on the Cousins jersey! Help! Lol
I had hand surgery yesterday and the general anasthetic has turned my sleep habit upside down. Im wide awake rite now but this latest update might make me rest easier actually.

We wouldn't IR him until we had to. I just don't trust Robert to be truthful with the team and doctors about how he really feels, and I don't trust the team to not take Robert at his word.

Also here is a little background on the man who will be fixing RG3.



According to the doctor on sirius if it is a partial tear than surgery is not an option? So, since it is a complete tear now they can do it all in six hours.

The MCL and LCL which are on the outside of the knee can repair themselves with therapy and treatment. That prognosis scared me. I hope it is just his LCL and not his ACL being partially torn as previously speculated.
Requoting Skinzwin here so you can read what he posted. Sounds to me like it is a good thing?

We need to look forward to Kirk leading the Skins, and there is a very good possibility that we may not want RG3 back on the field if Kirk has us in 1st place when and if RG3 is ready to return. That probably does not sit to well with some of you, but it may very well be a reality.
That would be the mother of all QB controversies. I think its a very viable option. How "rusty" will RG3 be? I'm confident he'll get back in the groove fast but probably not for a game or so.

Honestly, this is the best thing that could happen. Two powerful QBs (don't trade...we need a winning back up).
