Does seem odd that the giants are usually over protective, if anything and then pull that crap with Nicks.

I never said it was exactly the same. But the angelic rep of the giants with respect to injuries has to take a bit of

Two weeks later, though, the Giants’ top receiver was back on the field after missing only three games, and dealing with an injury that never really went away."
he ran himself into the ground
It's only a partial tear on the MCL he'll be fine.
Where did you hear that? Multiple reports are saying its partial lcl being repaired this week and only when theyre inside they'll know the extent of the acl. No mention of mcl. NFL network is the major reporting network

Even if there's no damage to the PCL, it can take weeks for the inflammation to go down. It looked to me like he should NOT have been playing the past two weeks.
When he went down in the Seahawks game, that looked like his MCL completely gave way. I think he's got multiple injuries to the knee, and if that's the case, there was almost certainly additional injury incurred after the initial injury in the Ravens game.
I did hear a report that "if he has surgery, he could miss some or all of the 2013 season". Of course, I really don't know and I'm sure not broke up about it.
To me it seems like his acl gave out, seen by his knee initially moving forward as he stumbled. Then, when his knee awkwardly bent in which everyone highlighted as the most gruesome part, I can't imagine this did not affect the mcl in even a small capacity. Regardless, if there is acl damage at all, even at a small tear, will need reconstructive surgery. That'll leave him out for most of camp, minimum. Not good. We will know what his acl looks like tomorrow, but the way his lower leg gave out in relation to his upper leg sure looks like a textbook acl tear

No way in hell that it was just a sprain against Baltimore either. I just don't understand how Shanahan is that stupid. There was no way the Redskins were going all the way this year... they should have shut RG3 down after Baltimore.

As an athlete , I can understand the blind competitive nature to want to play through anything. That's when a coach needs to step in. I agree it was disgusting that he was not taken out
