    Okay guys I want you to reach down to your knee cap and on the outside of your knee away from the medial, feel the area between you thigh and your lower leg. that's the Lateral collateral ligament that connects your fibula to your femur. Any sprain to that is as detrimental, as an anterior/posterior injury. Its not as vascular as the Medial so blood flow to that area is limited, reducing the regenerative process. Since its an abduct injury (meaning away from the mid-line of the body) The body natural realignment process will be longer, as its using more resources to pull back into place rather than just realignment. The risks are
    further damage to the LCL
    potential damage to the ACL/ PCL/ MCL/ meniscus
    septic inflammation ( usually not an issue as antibiotics are standard procedure.) but noted
    crepitus which can lead to bone spurs, this is an extreme case.

    Truly stupid to let him come back into the game. Was not worth it in the long run. The difference between a well run organization and a desperate one I guess.


    Edit: LCL's are usually a 1-2 month Limited movement thing with therapy. Would be surprised if he is back on the field in a week or so, then I would question practice and how much or what Opioid's are they giving him.

    Edit: Just read its a grade 1, not severe. Minor pull or hairline tear. Still any hit to that area can make the injury worst, but he can play with it if it's wrapped up tight, but its not recommended. He will be extremely limited in what he can do.

    huge blow to the 'skins. playing him early literally jeopardizes his career, if he were to tear his acl this late next year would be a waste and he still hasnt learned to read NFL defenses aside from the 1 read option bs they use.
    when shanny was explaining the injury i felt it was posturing. saying he might practice on Wed. lmfao the ESPN DR was making it seem like that would be the most idiotic move EVER to play RG3 before a few weeks rehab
    Did he see RG3's MRI if he didnt he cant make statements like tnat

    With who they have to play against (Steelers, Saints in both their stadiums), I don't see the Cowboys winning either game.
    For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

    Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!

    Agreed...no point in assuming when you dont have all of the information.

    Besides, I would not count out Kirk Cousins. He was very good in college.

    <BR><BR>I agree. Also, it didn't seem like Cousins was a slouch either.&nbsp; At the end of the day, Washington can still run the ball down people's throats.

    Any doctor who makes a " diagnosis " and or prediction without examining the actual individual is a charlatan or just doing it for the money and / or
    notoriety ! Ain't worth a fart in a whirlwind.

    Wait, is this the same ESPN Doctor that said Eli would be out a month or two with his Lisfranc injury?

    We can't lose Bradshaw if we are going to make a Superbowl run. He's at his best in the playoffs.

    Bingo!!!!!

    With RGIII's style of play you need a good backup. Keeping him healthy will be a challenge in his career. Especially if he doesn't slide.
