Wow. He's already shaved two to four months off the normal recovery time. Impressive.

Please understand I'm not hating but this isn't right,6-8 months,maybe for you and me to be able to be normal again but for a football player ,a QB,and for someone who has already had this done one time before,12 to 14 months.No I'm not a dotor but I did have the surgery and I admit I'm no superman but no matter what the knee will never be the same again.

But seriously...the overt damage control that's been coming out of Redskinsland is incredible.

It went from, "it could be the old damage" to "partial tears" to "torn lcl" to "total reconstruction". Now they're skimping on the time this injury normally takes to heal to make it seem less severe. And what? Set the stage to potentially rush him back?

They were scared shitless to come out and say it right after the game, but they sure as hell knew all along. We all saw his knee bend to the ground like a slinky on gameday.

This was a colossal mistake by the coach and by the organization. It looks like the famous doctor Andrews is just another Smithers.

They should "man up" like Griffin was trying to do by going back in and admit they gambled a ten year window for a playoff game and lost, big time.

It brings up all the old feelings that this franchise suffers from a real lack of character under Snyder.

The Jenkins WaPo article sums it up for me perfectly.

Oh well, right?

Get well Robert.

What I don't get is what they thought would happen next week anyway? He was clearly affected from the end of the 1st quarter, no way he was going to be able to play another 3 games.

All the best with the surgery RG3; for what its worth an injury like that in AFL would be a 10 month lay-off at best; at worst who knows

Hopefully our young OL works very hard in the off season . It would seem to be a focus in F/A and draft to bring in one more guy into the competition . Hope we do not rush RG's return ,maybe start KC the first 4-6 games and see how that goes ? Good luck Mr. Griffen .

I have read on WaPo that 6-8 months is the LCL rehabilitation period, but that by no means it is ready to perform at elite athletic standards.

I still wouldn't be surprised if they just shut him down for 2013. Even if he's "ready". The PR the Redskins front office takes on this is colossal. At this point, I wouldn't read anything into a 6-8 month time frame.

He'll be ready when he's ready.

He will likely start the season on the PUP list.

Re: As long as RGIII is 100% for 2013 training camp...

Here's a question: did RG's first ACL surgery (while he was in college) not really get the job done? Is it possible that the surgery was inadequate, and that subsequently led to a weakening of the knee which may have exacerbated the LCL injury? If that's the case, then perhaps a well done surgery this offseason will strengthen his knee to the point that it was stronger than it was his rookie year?

To me we need to lock up Kyle ASAP. Esp if Kirk starts for awhile. Kirks best chance is with Kyle calling the shots. Can't have a new OC right now. That should be our number one priority IMO
