    You do realize, the only ones jumping to conclusions are the ones saying he's out for a long time/season?

    The rest of us are just saying, this report is OPINION, not fact. We are waiting for the report tomorrow before declaring him out for the season.

    He could be out for the season, but no report has said that yet.

    RG3 having an MRI tonight, so we'll know soon enough.

    I have no clue, just hoping it's ok.

    For whatever it may be worth, RG3 has had an ACL before and said he knows what that feels like and doesn't believe it is that.

    Cam will probably last awhile, as long as he stops doing flips into the endzone.

    He's at the podium now, in good spirits. But added, he'll be "praying" for the MRI.

    This week there was a thread that asked, Luck or RGIII...which would you choose.

    I said Luck because of the risk of injury with RGIII. He's a smaller guy who gets exposed to big hits. Now a pocket qb can get hurt too. Romo almost got torn into two pieces in a play today.

    But when you are out in the open field and get rolled by a 320 pounder....and your legs are as thin as a deer. I just would be concerned about his career future.

    Now I'd say the same thing for the equally exciting Johnny Manziel. At some point somebody almost as fast...and way more massive is going to collide or fall upon little Johnny.

    I think the video looks worse than it is. Luckily, he was in the air and his foot wasn't planted. Hopefully, it is just a sprain, I don't want to see anyone get a season-ending injury, even if it is a deadskin :)

    I am hoping the ligament is OK and he just hyperextended in a straight motion. Will be painful, but not damaging. HArd to know.

    I agree. Ligaments usually have a tell tale "pop" when they tear, and Griffin didn't say anything about that. I'm guessing its a bad strain. Still might mean he's done for the regular season. Hard to say.

    I don't think we're thinking of the same injury then, because that doesn't look a fraction as bad as Thiesman's Tib/Fib.

    I'm catching up on WAS feed- it looks like team docs say it's not ACL for RGIII. I'll use this to remind how much I wanted Cousins in draft

    According to the presser, had an x-ray which came back negative and the doctors that examined him said the ligaments felt good.

    Just need an MRI to confirm.

    He will miss a game at least.

    Let him take a clean shot there next week, it will be a wrap.

    What about an MCL?

    Note to RG3: There are many other ligaments in your knee than just the ACL. The way his knee was contacted and displaced afterwards looked like it could possibly affect his lateral cruciate ligament

    Love it. He has to stop fooling around as a QB.

    Yes, you need the MRI to make any sort of conformation. The X-ray is not the radiograph of choice to determine any type of cartilage injury.
