Sighhhhh...Stop believing Rumors guys...Just stop. There will be a bunch more of these coming out over the course of the offseason. Don't believe everything you hear. I mean Robert had a torn PCL for a few hours too
LOL..The negativity will only get worse because people get paid for this kind of garbage. I remember when Brady tore his ACL, he got an infection and the story was they were going to have to do a 2nd ACL surgery. I'm ready for something like that, but it's too early just yet
Some random article on PFT > the opinion of the doctor who actually performed Griffin's surgery???
Come on guys

I'm to the point where I'm sick of hearing about RG3 and his knee. I don't think we will hear anything meaningful for a while and that means that we will have to see these types of speculative articles and opinions.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."
--- America's Game
So we wanna trade RG3 because he got hurt? Athletes with more than one injury are injury prone now? Smh... This is going to be a long off season.
"Talk is cheap. You've got to do it on the football field,”
One thing is he has his youth going for him. If this were a 29 year old RG3, then maybe I have more worries about it (sad that I'm close to being 29 myself, but in football terms that's starting to get up there). Peterson is definitely the gold standard for recovery, and we can't expect similar, but let's not forget that he is 5 years older and has taken a lot more punishment than RG3 as well. Welker came back early from an ACL injury and excelled, and Charles was another player who excelled this year despite an ACL tear last year. Heck, Peyton Manning is 37 and had 4 neck surgeries. I think people are overly paranoid about the severity.
I mean, I can't recall the last athlete whose career ended from just an ACL tear. There's Shawne Merriman, but his was a combination of playing on a torn LCL and PCL for an entire SEASON and no longer using steroids. He's been plagued by injuries ever since (though it's been calf, foot, and ankle injuries, not repeated knee injuries).
