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

I'm just going to say right now that I think there's a lot of PR spin behind this announcement and I'd be very surprised to see him on the field before early October.

Hope I'm wrong

What I saw was they know they need to repair the LCL and will exaiming the ACL to see if that needs repairing. LCL is several months recovery and the ACL is much lnoger.

Smoot, I agree, aren't there risks to coming back too early? How do you know when this thing is fully healed, not "feeling good enough to play".

Well the unbelievably quick return of AP will give folks hope for a rapid recovery...

Did he have just the ACL reconstructured or was the LCL involved as well? The LCL may require time, the way I read reports.

I have always said 3 to 6 weeks and he does some Arena Football in the off-season to stay in shape.

Hope I am right.

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

Surgery should be wrapping up by now, I believe

And when I say "I think"...there's more to it

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

PUP him at the beginning of the year- reevaluate after 6 weeks. I'm leaning towards just having him take the year off at this point- Just because I don't trust Shanahan in handling his gradual return. He's not going to be conservative in a rehab strategy.

I'm all for drafting another QB, start Cousins, and we're still better off knowing we have our guy for 2014. Hell of a lot better than this Franchise has been the past 15 or so years.

Obviously... we can only speculate at this point....which is annoying. Just hope this is handled properly and we can get our guy back on his feet, healthy, and fresh.

I still think we can go 9-7 with Cousins at the helm. We have a great foundation of youth moving forward, and we're only going to get younger.

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

Not surprising that he needed to go under the knife. I don't expect him to be ready for 2013. This off season should have been one of RG3 doing things to become a complete QB. Now he'll be doing rehab. Kinda sucks but life goes on.

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

Damn, I was hoping for ONE drama free offseason with this team. Above all I hope for a full recovery and for long term health.. Gonna try not to focus so much on him being back for the opener, rather having him back for most of the season and most importantly the postseason.

On the bright side, this makes the Cousins draft pick look all the more brilliant.

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

I mean when the camera's not rolling people who know will tell you 8 months is optimistic. 10 months is more realistic

Read between the lines.. It's more of an 8-10 month rehab but 6-8 months sounds much better and if he returns by opening day then it looks like they didn't truly risk his future.

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

My guess is he misses the first 4 games.

Maybe the optimistic outlook of 6-8 months comes from the fact he's so young and will undoubtedly work his tail off in rehab. He's been through this before so he knows the drill. Or maybe it's just some spin to make the fans feel a little better... or to not hurt ticket sales in the offseason... or maybe it's cause they know he's effing Superman!

Either way I have faith in Kirk being able to hold down the fort. Who's got a problem with that draft pick now??
