now, however, my knee is susceptible to hyperextending because i didnt get it fixed
Griffins injury was the same injury. Other then the concussion in Atlanta, his knee is the reason why he was out the last few games. If this was a regular guy, he doesnt play vs Philly, Dallas or Seattle. Im not worried, I think Mike switches back to a traditional offense next year, and thus, more throwing less running. Either way, look at Stafford, he was injured his first 3 years, some people just get the injury bug. I dont think Griffin is one of those people, and I dont think anyone should even worry about that right now.
What's the point of wearing a brace if it doesnt protect you from non-contact injuries?
When he stays in the pocket or gets flushed from the pocket blockers have no idea where he's at, he's not worried about tacklers as he's looking downfield for a WR, and he's not ready for impact.
The Ngata play was a fluke ... and I might add, that was not a designed run.
Designed runs will keep Robert healthy.
Anybody know the specific time of the MRI today?
LL tweeted that it may be a torn MCL. Not definite tho.
FWIW.. Keep hearing torn MCL. Not sure if that is the final diagnosis or not.
@jcstavish Agree.. Can't stress enough i'm not sure yet if that is the final diagnosis or not. Just passing along what I heard.
Whatever the result, I just want him back at 100% next year, even it means he'll have to miss a few games. No more of this 60%-80% stuff, RG3 needs to be 100% or we're risking something like this happening again. Also, I'd love for him to bulk up a little in the off season and build some muscle on those legs.

considering we haven't heard anything yet, I would imagine the news isn't good. But an MCL tear would be like Christmas morning compared to the ACL
