    Complete tear

    RGIII is out 6-8 months with a complete tear of the ACL and LCL. Will undergo surgery. This is why I prefer my QBs in the pocket. I wish him a speedy AP-like recovery.

    Man, so he may be out for all of camp? Wow. Ouch. Speedy recovery, dude.

    I'm convinced that any second opinion by Andrews means the worst. I'm not saying Andrews has an angle, I'm saying the teams already fear the worst and are praying that someone they are wrong. They never are.

    This is the 2nd ACL tear for RG3, he had one in college. I don't know if it was the same knee.

    It was. The MRI on Monday was sketchy because the Skins doctors had to try to see past the screw and the rubber band in the knee.

    You'll have to copy/paste,but this article was written pre-draft and gives insight to the type of "rehabber" he is.I would'nt be surprised to see him under center in the opener.

    This is why Andrew Luck will have a better pro career than RG III. And also why you need to limit RG III's running. Mobility is great for a QB. But a QB that runs is not sustainable.

    Ouch.

    Let's hope that he ends up like Adrian Peterson and not like Bo Jackson - a player we tell the grandkids about after saying "What might have been."

    You know that it's believed at this time that Griffin suffered the injury just trying to plant his foot on a pass, right? And that it didn't have anything to do with scrambling or running at all, right?

    RGIII seems to be more injury prone than other QBs. Even if he suffers an injury doing basic QBing functions, you don't put your injury prone QBs in additional risky situations by having him run a lot. Eventually those injuries will add up and he will lose his athleticisim to be an effective running QB. How many running QBs can you name that have had successful careers in the NFL? Especially in recent years.
