RG3 has partial tear of ACL and LCL

Even though he is a foe of the Giants, I hope he is able to make a full recovery.

Less competition for division title. Hope he recovers by year end though, but with the handling of the previous incident, wouldn't surprise me if Washington holds him out for the entire year.

He should recover just fine but I am thinking injuries may be a constant problem for him...

he has a slim build, he really doesn't have the body frame for taking hits



he won't last too long in a pistol offense...

Slim? I don't know too man slim guys that can put up 375 on the bench press. I agree his gamestyle will have to change or he is going to keep getting hit after hit. He is built for taking some hits but you can be as muscular as you want but if your knee bends the wrong way after you catch a blow on a QB keeper, there's not too much you can do.

He's not slim.

6'2 1/2, 220.... He's bigger than Adrian Peterson.

hmm...he looks slim to me for some reason

guess he is pretty ripped though



for some reason he doesn't look that big to me...

Looks pretty anorexic to me, Carbine.

maybe he just has thin legs or something...not sure why I thought that

I thought he was built more like a track runner...(I think he was a track runner at Baylor)

but I guess at that weight he has plenty of size...

You're an idiot

yeah Peterson is a little shorter so not quite as thin...but still close I guess according to what they are listed at

I would have thought AD had like 20-30 lbs on Griffin though...

Adrian Peterson is 217 like LeBron is 250.

Problem with RG3 is he becomes reckless once he starts to scramble. He doesn't play it smart and slide and he's always taking hits when he scrambles.

He can last in the pistol offense but maybe they should lower the amount of plays they run out of it. I also don't think they are going to use it as much once RG3 matures as a player as the pistol offense was a good bridge to the NFL to help him adjust.

RG3 is most definitely thin.. He's no McNabb or Culpepper those dudes were built like rocks. Rg reminds me of the Allen Iverson of football.. Strong and ripped but not nearly as compact or big as the defenders going at him.

He got more careful as the season went on, but still got injured. Oddly enough, he seemed to get less careful after he got hurt (aside from that really early slide against Dallas). It was almost like he was testing it out against Seattle.
