Robert Griffin III Will Travel to Alabama to Have His Knee Further Examined by Dr. James Andrews

Robert Griffin III Will Travel to Alabama to Have His Knee Further Examined by Dr. James Andrews


Redskins head coachMike Shanahan held his Monday press conference, and stated that his rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III will travel to Alabama for further testing with Dr. James Andrews. This is never a good sign for a athlete.


From the Press Conference:


Robert will fly down tomorrow to see Dr. Andrews. He’s going to have some more tests and a physical exam. I’m not sure right now the extent of his knee. Anytime you do have a former ACL injury, or an LCL, and you take a look at this MRI, sometimes its old injuries. That’s why he’s going to fly down there and see Dr. Andrews, get some new MRIs, get a physical examination. And so right now, everything is total speculation. When I do know the extent of the injury, I’ll let you know.


The questioning also turned testy when the topic of Dr. James Andrews came up, in regard to Andrews’ revelation that he did not clear Griffin to return in the Baltimore game. ”There was no miscommunication with Dr. Andrews” after the Ravens game, Shanahan insisted. “I asked Dr. Andrews if he was okay to be in the game. He said ‘yes’”. When pressed, Shanahan fired, ”[w]hy don’t you get a hold of Dr. Andrews, and you ask him.”


Dr. Andrews was at the game, and it was not revealed whether he had already reviewed any from the last 24 hours. When asked about whether there was a concern, Shanahan said “there is a concern, that’s why he is going to go see him.”


In my opinion RG3 probably should have never started that game, but after getting out to a 14-0 lead, Shanahan should have pulled his superstar quarterback, especially after watch him limp all over the field. This could not only affect the next year, but future years of consistently re-injury the same knee, because it wash’t taken care of properly. I give it up though for the rookie, as I would have done everything in my power to play in a home playoff game. Class Act.

Trouble in Big “D”: Dez Bryant Leaves Practice After Suffering Knee Injury; MRI Awaiting…

The Cowboys are holding their breath and waiting word on the knee injury that WR Dez Bryant suffered in Monday’s practice against the Chargers.


Bryant left practice and underwent an MRI on his right knee. The third-year receiver slipped on the grass coming out of a break and immediately limped off the field with the trainers.


The Cowboys, also without starting receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), suffered two more injuries at WR with Andre Holmes (back) and Donovan Kemp (knee) sustaining injuries Monday that forced them out of practice.

Miami Wins Game 1 But Looses “Big 3″ Member Chris Bosh to Strained Lower Abdominal…

The Heat may be without Chris Bosh for a while depending on what an MRI on Monday shows about the severity of the lower abdominal strain he suffered in a 95-86 Game 1 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.

Bosh pulled the muscle on a dunk late in the first half, struggling to rise from his knees after being fouled by Pacers center Roy Hibbert on the play. His is currently day to day but Monday’s test results could change that. The Heat were without Bosh for nine games this season and went 4-5.


“You could see by the look on his face that something was wrong,” said Dwyane Wade, who had 29 points. “Hopefully tomorrow we’ll get good news … our brother is going to see tomorrow if he can get back out there and play with us.”


Bosh was expected to be a key player in the series as the primary defender against the All-Star Hibbert. He was off to a good start, scoring 13 points with five rebounds in 16 minutes. Hibbert, who battled foul trouble, had 17 points and 11 rebounds and scored just seven points after the Bosh injury.

Knicks G Baron Davis Out a Year After Horrific Injury in Game 4....

Knicks G Baron Davis Out a Year After Horrific Injury in Game 4….

An MRI on Monday revealed that New York Knicks point guard Baron Davis has suffered a partial tear of the patella tendon in his right knee and complete tears of the right anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, according to the team.



Davis is expected to undergo surgery later this week. Recovery time is approximately 12 months.


Davis suffered the injury in the third quarter of Game 4 of the Knicks series against the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon. The 33-year-old was dribbling down court and appeared to go down without contact after his knee buckled.


Davis was on the ground for several minutes being tended to by team trainers. Eventually, he was taken off the court on a stretcher. He pointed at the crowd as he was wheeled off the floor, to a loud ovation from the Madison Square Garden crowd. But he was shown by television cameras grimacing going through the players’ tunnel.


–Players on the floor from both teams were visibly shaken by the injury.–
