ACL Tear May Lead To Robert Griffin III Missing Half Of 2013 NFL Season
It was painful to watch on Sunday afternoon as Robert Griffin III lay on the turf with a knee injury. We have since learned that it was a torn ACL and LCL and Griffin will be out for a long time. I’m not sure if Griffin should try to get back for the beginning of the 2013 season or not. It seems like a very long shot though that it happens.
Griffin was already in bad shape from a knee injury a few weeks prior and was limping around anyway so it might have been best in hindsight if Griffin was taken out of the game. The Washington Redskins have a big test ahead of them now though in deciding what they want to do with Griffin. Do they want him to rush back for the beginning of the 2013 season or just have Kirk Cousins begin the season and hope to get Griffin back around Week 4 or 5?
We all saw Adrian Peterson and his recovery to be back by the beginning of this season. I don’t think Griffin can pull off that recovery though and will be gone for quite a while. In fact, I would not be surprised if Griffin misses most of the 2013 season with this injury. There is really no reason for Griffin to rush back to the Washington lineup. He is the future of the organization and having him rush back may cause yet another injury. That is something that the Redskins need to avoid have happen at all costs.
