lol no that was the mort report with elis shoulder. this dudes apparently one of the top physicians/surgeons in the country and he deals specifically with knees and joints. id say he was accurate but he didnt get to see rg3's mri. all he was going off of was what the redskins and rg3 reported, who knows they may even be underplaying it.

rg3 almost def has a deep bruise as well. he just aint gonna be anywhere near the player he is healthy if he is to play, and if he does play this sunday i believe the dr when he said it would almost certainly lead to more serious injuries with that knee...rg3 isnt ur typical qb, for all the "hes the best, wow hes amazing" he doesnt know how to be a pure pocket passer in the nfl yet. if he does, he aint showed it. all theyve done is the 1 read option for both the pass and run. hows he gonna handle defenses when they arent paralyzed by the option?
I don't wish any harm to the kid, I hate to see anyone get hurt. But everyone has been saying he cannot play like this all season. Teams are already starting to figure out, who cares if RG3 doesn't have the ball we are going to pound him everytime he gets the ball. Baltimore basically shut him down the second half they wore him down, but they lost cause of that fumble at the end. The Giants can learn something form that game just HIT the quarterback EVERYTIME on that option offense.
If RG3 cannot play against the Browns then that is a very winnable game for them. I can actually see them winning, Trent Richardson is a good runner and if he gets going and with that horrible secondary having to bring extra people in the box, it could be a long day for the Redskins.
why not? u look at the mri to diagnose the issue. the redskins have done that already and explained what is wrong with rg3. granted he doesnt know to what extent its injured, he was basically just explaining what is understood with a grade 1 lcl sprain.
