Griffinís knee creates more concern than advertised
Posted by Mike Florio on January 12, 2013, 2:17 PM EST

And now we know why Dr. James Andrews is pumping the brakes regarding the presumption that Robert Griffin III will become Adrian Peterson II.

Per a league source, there is much greater concern regarding Griffinís knee than anyone connected to the Redskins or Griffin has publicly conceded.

Yes, he tore his LCL and his ACL. Yes, it wonít be easy to rehab both ligaments at the same time. Yes, they had to invade his healthy knee for a patellar tendon graft. And, yes, Griffin suffered a partial tear of his meniscus when tearing the ACL, a common consequence when the ACL is damaged.

All of those pieces of information have made their way to the media. But the entire result is a stew of concerns that has created a far more negative vibe in and around the Griffin camp than the pronouncements of optimism and quasi-guarantees that heíll be good as new by September 2013.

Apart from the fact that thereís no way to know how the ACL will rehab, the biggest concern, as the source explained it, is the damage to Griffinís cartilage. With the ACL in the right knee now torn twice in less than four years, Griffin has lost enough cartilage in his knee to raise concerns about how much remains and how long it will last. Eventually, Griffin could be dealing with bone-on-bone contact, and the chronic pain that goes along with it.

And heís still only 22.

The first ACL tear was long forgotten during Griffinís stellar rookie season. In fact, most fans didnít even know about it, because Griffin was hardly a nationally-known name at the time the injury happened. But there was a real physical risk when the Redskins gave up three first-round picks and a second-round pick to get Griffin, and less than a year after making the trade the team now has to wonder whether Griffin ever will be the same ó and if he is how long that will possibly last.
Eh.. If this was the 1980's I'd definitely see signs for concern, but Griffin is a world class athlete and will see the field again. Just probably not next year. Also being 22 he has the youth to recover, now if he was 32 then no way.

The Redskins did give up WAAAYYY too much to get him though considering he is a huge injury risk.

As someone said, he needs to take a year off and learn to become an effective pocket passer.

Brandon Roy went from being one of the best up and coming guards in the NBA (3x All Star) and a franchise player around the Portland Trailblazers to a guy with BONE ON BONE cartilage that retired two times, can't dunk, lost about 10 steps, and is a 6th man jump shooter while dealing with the fact he is a now a nobody.

That's what bone on bone does. Ruins careers

The Cartilage is a bigger problem, like mcaj22 is saying, than the other things. He probably won't be as explosive.

Brandon Roy is suffering from a degenerative knee issue. All the cartilage in both knees basically eroded on him. I wouldn't say that what RGIII is going through is comparable.

what do you think that report says to RGIII

two tears leaving very little to no cartilage left in the knee for bone to bone, and will/could suffer chronic pain the rest of his career

though not degenerative, still is exactly what Brandon Roy suffered, though RGIII took a different path to get there, (two ACL tears)

If there is no cartilage left to operate on, his knee is going to take a POUNDING just being bone to bone

He will have an AP-like recovery. He's superman.
