Griffin's injuries more serious than reported
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — It doesn't sound good for Robert Griffin III.
An injury that sidelines RG3 well into next season is a very real possibility — or at least it seemed that way after coach Mike Shanahan described the results of tests on the rookie's right knee.
Shanahan said the results prompted the team to send Griffin to Florida on Tuesday to see renowned orthopedist James Andrews for more examinations, essentially a second opinion that will decide the team's fate for the 2013 season.
"There is a concern," Shanahan said. "That's why he's going to see him."
Griffin tore his ACL while playing for Baylor in 2009, and Shanahan said that old injury caused Griffin's latest MRI to prove inconclusive and produce "differences of opinion" in those who have looked at it.
