There's a reason why Andrews says what he does about Griffin and running, he's the best sports doctor there is and he understands that RG3 can't take the punishment of big hits in the NFL, he's basically saying if u want him for many years u better not run him as much, let's b honest one more knee and he's probably done .

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

The other part about running backs, is those guys are judged on runnin ability, blocking assignments, chips, and running pass routes.

If he loses a step ok, that sucks, but he is a QB whose primary job is to throw the football and run when necessary. Even throwing a read option or three into the game isn't going to kill him or injure him.

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

WTF point is there to having a QB if you decide to only use some of his skills? GD some of you don't make sense. He's a QB who can run...it's part of his game...learn to deal. He's going to run. Always.

Thats encouraging I hope he realizes that coming back quick isnt as important as coming back 100%. Listen to the doctors and do it rite. Please.

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

He has to recover from surgery on both knees, a piece of bone and tendon from his left knee were needed for the reconstruction.

RGIII’s former surgeon says QB could return for start of 2013 season

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

Beautiful article. Any person needs time to recover from any kind of surgery. I hope that he and team officials have learned their lessons.

"Next season, I would not be surprised if he is named Comeback Player of the Year and leads his team to the Super Bowl.

This is a man who will once again comfortably carry the weight of the franchise."

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

How weird is it that a Skins player from our 1991 SB run became a surgeon, and then was the surgeon who operated on RG3's first ACL injury?

I think this is what this boils down to. Skins PR staff calming the masses so they'll keep the fans from bailing next season. If they knew he'd be out the 2013 season, I can guarantee you they wouldn't tell us. Why would they? Gotta milk that cash cow and continue to give people hope so they'll buy tickets, only to string them along. Mind you, I do think he'll be back next year, but I was merely using this as an example. The fact they've been so secretive this past weeks generally means there is more to it than what there is. Hell, you can tell from the spin they put on the surgery itself. "Oh, he had his LCL repaired....and by the way we decided to redo his previous ACL surgery". In other words, he also tore his ACL and but we don't want to come out and say how severe the damage was because we don't want to take the heat. (for keeping him in the game)

As far as his return, I just hope its sooner than we hope, and he comes back when he's 100%. (not 80%) Whether that's going to be 6 months or 12 months remains to be determined.

All the planets aligned. My biggest worry is what they talk about in the article. RGIII is SO highly motivated that he will try and push too hard and actually do more harm than good. I couldn't believe reading about his first ACL tear in college and he would sit in a chair and throw passes to his father for hours.
