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

I love RG3, but I have high confidence in Kirk Cousins...I do hope that RG3 can recovery from his knee surgery and get back out on the field. If he is able to return in time for training camp, that would be excellent. But I'm already thinking of Cousins as our starting quarterback for 2013.....

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

A rarity these days.. A balance of optimism, pessimism and reality from the Dr. (and former Redskin) who performed RG3's first ACL surgery.

"Perhaps the Redskins should not overuse RG3's running skills when he returns to the field."

That defeats the purpose of having RG3...

Not to mention the fact that it's nonsensical "logic". Nowhere did Andrews say that only 55% of backs are still in the league 2 years after surgery because of overuse. Those backs aren't in the league 2 years later because the average length of an NFL player's career is only 3 years. So naturally after two years, half will be out of the NFL just by the law of averages. The quality of the player even before the injury has just as much to do with that stat as anything else. Guys who sucked in the first place will be out of the league quick. Guys like Griffin and AP, well, WON'T!

It should be noted that Griffin is not a juke you out of your shoes type runner. He's more of a straight line speed guy. The only thing you worry about is burst of acceleration with him.

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.

Just as long as you have the threat of eating Buffalo wings. That should be enough to keep the......waitresses honest.
