If RG3 indeed has a PCL tear, he will never be the same again. ACL injuries are very common, the surgery and the therapy needed to get to 100% have nearly been perfected. PCL injuries are rare and surgeons don't have alot of experience handling them, the location of the PCL also plays a role in the surgery's difficulty. Its hidden, difficult to reach and correct. Also the surgery for acl and PCL will have to be done separately, with proper post surgery therapy after each surgery which will prolong his downtime. If he has both ACL and PCL tear, look for him to struggle to get ready for 2014.
Bottom line is he never should have been in the game after the first quarter. His knee was buckling when he was PASSING the ball, not just running.
I listened to Mike on WFAN saying that the doctor was on the sidelines, and said he was ok, but I dont know how anyone watching the televised game with replay could possibly have thought he was ok to play.
Maybe he was ok in a medical sense, but no way was he ok in a football sense.
Small quarterback who makes his living by running or being a threat to run...takes huge hits...already had a concussion and knee injury in his first season. Does it take Kreskin to predict the probable outcome?
The unfortunate part is that he was injured before he went down as well. We don't know all the facts, but it's not looking good.
Runnin' Down a Dream
If he does not go in the shop for repairs and expects it to heal on its own, he will never be the same.....I've seen a lot of athletes who are scared of operations and they evntually pay the price.
