Is there more concern about the ability of Robert Griffin III’s right knee than we are being led to believe? According to a report on Pro Football Talk, there is.
Citing a league source, the reports says that there is concern on the part of both the Redskins and Griffin’s camp that that the fact that this is his second ACL reconstruction in four years means that there may be some cartilage loss.
The report stated that “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.”
The report did not directly cite anyone in the camp of Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery, or anyone in Griffin’s camp directly.
