Jury Still Out On RG3 InjurySports Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) _ The Washington Redskins are still waiting to learn the medical status of quarterback Robert Griffin III, who re-injured his right knee in Sunday’s playoff loss to Seattle.
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said initial test results are prompting the team to send Griffin to Florida on Tuesday to see renowned orthopedist James Andrews for more examinations, essentially a second opinion that will decide the team’s fate for next season.
Griffin tore the ACL in his right knee while playing for Baylor in 2009, and Shanahan said that old injury caused Griffin’s latest MRI to prove inconclusive and produce “differences of opinion” in those who have looked at it.
If Griffin has torn the ACL again, he would likely require a rehabilitation period of nine to 12 months, putting his status for next season in jeopardy.
Griffin had to miss a regular-season game after spraining the knee in an overtime win against Baltimore. He re-injured the knee twice in Sunday’s playoff loss to Seattle.
