Joining us now from Houston is doctor mark addicts who not only was an offensive lineman for the Redskins on the night he won Super Bowl champion team. He's also the orthopedic surgeon who performed the first surgery on Robert Griffin the third back in owed 9 o'clock got X thanks for joining us this town is upside down right now we're about. Their quarterback. You've seen the recovery process countless times considering this is the second major surgery. What's the reasonable expectation for him.

Well I mean the slowest thing to recover from his this ACL in the also. You have to keep in mind that he had the graft taken from his good leg which is gonna slow the initial recovery down because he really does have a good leg to stand on until he starts to recover. But honestly I think an eight month timetable is very very realistic and I mean Robert is an absolute animal -- he was back on the field for months after his initial. ACL a week we literally spent all of our time trying to slow him down. And he's a Smart guy is a courageous guy is a tough guy obviously but he also is an amazing athlete and Yzerman has been incredibly strong legs so. You know I I would not be surprised if he was back on the field for the the you know the regular season opener that you are described how he was in the recovery process -- how. Should the Redskins deal with him and his rehab. Well I mean if if I'm the one in charge of putting him back on the field I would be sure that he was a 100% before he went back. And if he's a 100% ready to go and he has a few practices under his belt and he can play in that regular season opener great. If he has some setbacks or is having some pain or whatever it might be. Then I would slowing down I mean it is you know it. The bottom line is the kid is they've shown what he can do making the Pro Bowl as a rookie having the highest passer rating as a rookie and so. If fiesta missed the entire season if -- missed the entire season. I don't see that happening though I really don't I don't think that is going to be you know twelve month thirteen month thing I think he's going to be ready to go and a so he's had now a second major surgery on the -- though so. I'm review percentage or not but the percentage of this happening again for heaven's -- I mean when you have a mean it's been injured. It it's certainly every time I've got a bunch of surgeries both on my shoulders and in my knees. You're never the same. But the point is -- and you do the things that you used to do. And I injured my knee and in college torn ACL -- and MCL and then my second game as a pro I actually dislocated my knee tearing every single ligament in my knee. And I came back and played nine years there after so. You know it is something that can be done -- I'm not the kind -- athlete that that that Robert Griffin is that I can't run like he can run and cut like he can cut but that being said. I would expect him to come back and still be able to be. The the kind of quarterback that he was this season be able to run the ball when he needs to obviously I want him to slide and go out of bounds as much as possible but. But that being said I would expect him to be just as dynamic as he was this season both running the ball and throwing the ball.

And perhaps bring you more than Washington Nationals to teach him to slide up by the way deal -- year's Super Bowl ring during surgery. -- would terribly gloves -- I don't where I -- where bruins' side but mark addicts we really appreciate time thank you very much. You bet a pleasure. CSN Washington dot com.

    CSN Washington dot com. It's a dangerous position and guys can get hurt so I guess the thought is yes it would be great if RG three get down slide protect himself a little bit. But one way or another at some point it seems like somebody's get banged up so maybe want to go up there just play a little while You look at you look at the fact that he puts himself in some danger and I'm out there and his thought process on playing the game but. Once you're injured you have to realize you're injured and leave the game Fred Hawkins and probably. One of the guys is most known and best known for being touchdowns called him afterward he say. I didn't take a lot of hits. Roger Staubach didn't take a lot we have put ourselves in those position Robert is in trouble because he thinks he can do. He always thinks can do anything affect and he didn't think right that you can do it at this level the process arms and his change his mindset is that we you're hurt. Get off the field just that you didn't get doesn't mean you gonna do it against the Cleveland Browns this is that anybody else this late. You do would win that are very very good Democrat. Ended union won't it take a look at each of us said the other night at the line injured line in a jungle. All of a sudden they'll see executing anymore it's CU as the And I don't disagree with you when you get down and play a little safer place would approve his chance they would have taken it would reduce the risk factor a little bit just a mindset doesn't change that mindset. Don't think you have to do it all. Get down and let's might have you play the next play. All right CSN Washington dot com.

  3. Bucher: Wall's return should bring excitement, infuse energy into Wizards

    Thu, 10 Jan 2013

    CSN Washington dot com. NBA insider Rick have you heard Rick would waiting all year and it looks like John Wall will make his season debut on Saturday what we expect and does play. We can expect at least a limited minutes the had. Excitement and the energy and the closer that the Wizards had been hoping for all season. the big question is this going to be conditioning and endurance. How long can he go in stretches. And how much of Cink is he going to be with his teammates won once he gets to game speed. Talk about teammates last week we talked about Bradley feels developmental for how well John return would benefit him. Well it's gonna be tremendous because there's been so much focus on on Bradley and it's gonna do two things one. John is great at pushing the tempo and finding guys in the open court particularly. In transition situations Bradley is going to get some easy looks and then despite John's ability to penetrate. Teams are gonna have to sagging and defensively those are things that by and large just have not been have been happening that the shots that feel has been getting. And then maturation process that he's had to go through is largely because he's got to create his own opportunities. I would expect that Bradley feel is really going to rise with the return of John. All. I'd give me a seat on your private jet let's move around the NBA. Now what are you hearing about Sacramento's move. To see so what's the latest. From what I'm hearing to this point look you have two sides that are extremely motivated. Them loops the current owners of the Sacramento Kings. The basic siphoned off every accept that they've had and the is the last piece and if they get the right price. And from what we're hearing out of Seattle. 500 million dollars would certainly be the right price this appears to be a situation where everybody is motivated from what I've heard perhaps the most important piece. Is that commissioner David Stern on his list of things to do before he leaves office in 2014. Is to get a team back in Seattle this seems that to be the perfect situation to make that happen. Pride and finally we knew the Knicks and Celtics was a robbery but I believe Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Burnett took it to the next level. Guy Anthony suspended for one game for what I guess waiting outside the locker room what you hear about possible ramifications for the future of this. Those two guys are at a crossroads. And they've created a conflict that I'm sure it's not gonna go away. It's he also has a habit whispering things and guys years to get them off their game what ever you think that might be. He certainly does not know any boundaries no offense to what Doc Rivers suggest so. The fact that you might of gotten Carmelo Anthony a little riled up beyond what he already was it's hardly a surprise. Csnwashington.com.

Skins here with the guys and and make plays again it's pretty gets people affected us some insight as a new haircut somebody whatever you know something's got some new clothes and we don't know where they got a very. You'd hate to see the ones they didn't buy you know like how come it's it's really fun it's really and then that that's gonna carry on with the. Looks like we wouldn't discuss the injury here reportedly suffered while playing in Switzerland. But he did sum up the out perfectly. I'm honestly really embarrassed by the block of that personally embarrassed I mean. I feel terrible about it and I feel like. We just punched sport in the face. And I feel bad for everybody that was affected by it directly or. I really hope that we can get them back in the building and give them reenergize filmmaker so successful we'll do whatever to get them back.
