Robert Griffin III: Damaged goods?
By moving up from the No. 6 pick to select Robert Griffin III they swapped first-round picks with the Rams and traded two future first-round picks and a second-round pick.
Now, Redskins fans may need to worry that they received damaged goods.
While we can sit and debate if RG3 should have even been in the game until the start of the 2013 season the real problem according to the AP and ESPN.com is that the Redskins are seeking a second opinion because it is possible the MRI taken could be showing previous knee injuries.
Griffin suffered a torn ACL in the same knee while playing in college at Baylor in 2009.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has suffered partial tears to the anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, according to a report from The Washington Post. RG3 is being sent to renowned orthopedist James Andrews for more examinations.
When selecting any NFL draft pick the team does it’s due diligence before the selection and the process is amplified when selecting in the first few rounds, especially the second pick in the draft.
The question becomes just how much were the Redskins aware of the damage or was it unknown?
