it might be one of those situations where they'll see a tiny tear in the ACL or maybe even the PCL (since that weird movement the knee showed a lot give in all
). since he was walking around on his own strength.
if there is a small tear in the either ACL/PCL then protocol would be just to reconstruct it (basically harvesting a new ligament then replacing the injured one)...
there's a lot of questions going in medically wise because RGIII has had an ACL Repair done before so they might have to harvest the new ligament from his already injured leg either from the hamstrings tendon (athroscopically the middle of three/four conjoined tendons) or the patellar tendon (which means they'll have to open up the knee - technically more complications post op possibly).
what amazes me is how athletic he already was even after the ACL reconstruct when he was still young. even after his surgery he was olympic levels for his track times.
i don't really doubt that RGIII can come back just fine, but its his kind of game where he's getting knocked down even in the pocket that you have to take into consideration.
my bet is they do the ACL reconstruct. but hell it could just be a MCL and meniscus injury (which means a scope and clearing out of loose meniscus and rest) and he'll be as good to go.
RGIII does have the game/arm to be an excellent pocket passer, but damn he needs to know when to not sacrifice himself when he's in the pocket. he's always getting popped with blind side hits.
