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

Per Grant Paulsen: Talked to a renowned surgeon who's operated on countless world-class athletes. Said 6-8 month recovery timetable: realistic, not assured....I found particularly interesting from my convo w/ the renowned doctor: RG3's previous ACL tear won't add time to rehab/recovery.

Hope I'm wrong
I don't mind if you are right, if October is when he is 100% that is when he should play, not a moment before that.

That report did seem a bit optimistic to me also.

If we learned anything its that we do not need to RUSH this thing. Just get it done right, no matter the time frame.

Kirk Cousins was drafted for a reason.

It sounds like to me, that at least by Dr. Andrews' high standards, the previous surgery may not have been up to par. Although it was not completely torn, he decided to completely re-do the prior procedure and replace it entirely. Perhaps that contributed to the injury? If not, at least we can be reassured that it should be even stronger than before now.



Side note, is anyone else seeing the MendMyKnee.com ad on top of the page? Funny, a little.

My mom had her knee replaced at age 73 and over a yr latter she is not a 100% so I'm guessing RGIII will not play in 2013.

Hopefully, hate comparing to AP's injury but hopefully it has a similar result, or Welker's knee, or Brady's. Well it comes back just as good if not better. Except with brady it took two seasons to recover completely.

Another role played in all of this is young Robert's fearlessness. I think that's a chink in his armor, a flaw - I think he's fearless to a fault. Now the coach knows that.

I don't think it happens again, either.

And if I'm reading between the lines correctly of the things Robert himself has been saying since Sunday on Facebook, I think he is kicking himself, too, and maybe he's wizened up about that.
Just admit it - you cant quit the warpath. No reason to take a hiatus.

Can she hit an end zone fade?

People heal a lot more quickly when they are 22 than when they are 73.

Hey First, could your mom jump into the stands at FedEx before her surgery?

Negatively or positively? And in what regard recovery time or overall knee ligament health?

The problem we have going on right now is we have to few doctors that have examined Griffin and more leahman opinions or professional options dealing with other patients not named Robert Griffin III.

I want to hear from Dr Andrews specifically before anyone else. He is one of the only people on the planet right now who has a very good understanding of Robert and more in particular Robert's knee.

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

I just want to report that the surgery with Robert this morning went wonderful. My mate Dr. Andrews had some trouble with the Davinci machine at first, but he was golden after I gave him a rundown on how to operate it. As with any patient confidentiality statement, I cannot comment on the actual damage to the Robert's knee, but I'm sure the Redskins PR staff will be along shortly to blow smoke up the fanbase's ass to keep them from bailing next season.
