CSN Washington dot com. -- you sure talk a little bit about. RG three is they respond that now he has they'll see your -- going to have surgery tomorrow they're winning in exciting or look to see everything else is wrong with the ACL. And now we start the one giving out and how -- that they can get it back and there's somewhat of a sense of relief that. Now you know at least what the problem is it will be addressed as you said with the surgery tomorrow they go after look in there and see what's going on with the ACL. But as a redskin fan at least you're starting to get some answers and think all right now there's a time frame -- time one of which we can. Hopefully expect RG three back in the lineup for the meantime. The Redskins have to keep preparing as it may be cousins will be the starter. Come next football season best true guard --

Lewis are down by everything comes to an -- they have to start. You know when you have just got to start some look at the fact. Right now RG -- we know what's gonna happen eagle to -- he also be goals in sew up the rehab you see ripping the ball which you -- Eck absolutely right. Now we're gonna find out Kirk cousins because this offseason Robben won't be there. That what happened now -- and begin to lean on occurred cause that's a guy that you have to be thinking right now would probably be you started we won't. And does it if these don't go right he can be a much not much you don't know but it needs is go perfectly to be six or seven week six.

Broncos back but we will find out now. Why exactly true because that horrible for a while and do they really really respect messes -- when they when they drafted RG three and cousins I thought. Maybe this organization. Has proved why would you take two quarterbacks now they actually look like geniuses for drafting two quarterbacks. And this is gonna be a really good offseason for cousins because he's gonna get the -- he's gonna get to run the offense. Even if he's not gonna be the man when the season starts he's gonna feel like the man and that can only benefit the Redskins would RG three comes back because they'll have two guys.

That have a lot of playing time at this point netted just help some both at this point and everybody is that a lot of minds there had a lot of different comments about why do what we should happen. As I have but right now they -- going to give him healthy -- back on the football field moving forward and get this team better. CSN Washington dot com.

  2. Dr. Ben Shaffer explains RG3's knee injury

    Wed, 9 Jan 2013

    Csnwashington.com. Now this afternoon I sat down with capitals head team doctor Ben Shaffer of Washington orthopedics and sports medicine at hospital. He has performed that many similar surgeries and I asked him to walk us through the process. This is the ACL here. If you look at a from the side view the ACL. Demonstrates. How it controls normal translation. back. That's the ligament the TO circus also responsible for stability. In picketing in cutting so it took. Critical ligament we see is apologies black structure to normal. If we look at this example and decide he would need exact. Image. But it different patient. Here we conceded is no identifiable with him. Instead of that black Linear structure you see just agree. Washed out if you get to twenty TO on them on the other ligaments in the collateral ligaments there on either side. This is a right model. This is a lateral collateral ligament in Texas to the femur. Here on the fifth mile. And this is responsible for maintaining stability against stresses in which he needs to work in this direction and we conceded in this particular example. EL CO is completely intact. And again when you had a disruption in the AL CL. What you see. Is abnormal. Heterogeneous. Washed out can win doctor say that he did you prepare of the LCL what does that mean. That means that whatever fibers were torn whether they were torn in their mid substance. Or if they were torn off the bone that he views sutures to directly reattached. The ligament either to the bones were primarily suture that and directly and together. Like and that's a primary repair OK and then reconstruction. Of the ACL means what. Reconstruction. Refers to replace substituting that and when you're ACL there is very little left it's kind of like my opinions when you look inside the joint. So you have to surgically excise that tissue in this case the previous graph from the prior ACL reconstruction. Clean it up and make tunnels and take tissue from somewhere and putting is a substitute to reconstruction. Is replacing the ligament with. The substitute when they say that what's his high motivation he could be back for the start of the 2013. Season how does that timeline. Gel with kind of what you have seen in the past primary ACL reconstruction. Probably is about a six month timetable to return to previous level of activities it's fairly quick. We knew as an LCO repair which initially requires a mobilization. Not prompt rehab. Right out of the box. Then your head into the equation several months because of requiring the LC LT heal me. In addition he underwent a revision ACL reconstruction not a primary reconstruction. And in revision generally we go bit slower. So we'll probably talking about a period of approximately nine months when I would expect an individual with his injuries to be able to time. She SN Washington dot com.

We're out here to As a teammate and as a friend of Roberts when you think about what he has gone through throughout the course of when he first injured in the until now the news that. He's gonna have surgery I had surgery today. What does it say about the mindset of this young man is a franchise quarterback to go out there and put himself through this for the betterment of the team. So there's so much you get so much it is what it's. The team and how much you know he loves football and it's that so. Just like game for a full body position a lot of budget can't how much you care about the game. You know there's a full spectrum of timetables that we're hearing but. As a professional athlete and you never dealt with an injury where you had to go through rehab and what's that mindset like to try to get back as fast as possible. Just actually that's that there was in game basically have less time in itself but the idea of what a less distractions can't but it takes. But the most hardest part about the better you are well adapted their game something. And make your blatant pass went you know it. As you would know in the National Football League is all about next man up obviously do whatever it takes.
