Dr. James Andrews Very Worried About RG3’s Knee
If you recall when RG3 was hurt his knee against Baltimore, he came back into the game for a few plays before he couldn’t take the pain anymore.
Mike Shanahan was asked why he was allowed to go back in and he said Dr. Andrews gave him permission. Dr. Andrews disputes that claim.
“(Griffin) didn’t even let us look at him,” Andrews said. “He came off the field, walked through the sidelines, circled back through the players and took off back to the field. It wasn’t our opinion.
“We didn’t even get to touch him or talk to him. Scared the hell out of me.”
While Shanahan and RG3 says that he is close to 100%, according to Dr. Andrews that isn’t necessarily true even thought RG3 has been cleared to play.
“I’m the one that shut him down that day, finally,” Andrews said. “I’ve been a nervous wreck letting him come back as quick as he has. He’s doing a lot better this week, but he’s still recovering and I’m holding my breath because of it.
“He passed all the tests and all the functional things we do, but it’s been a trying moment for me, to be honest with you.”
RG3 is still gimpy but playing well, hopefully no new damage will be done.
