A torn ACL was Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III’s worst nightmare, and it came alive in the playoffs.
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is the face of a city, let alone the face of an NFL franchise. When he when down with a torn ACL, fans across the nation cringed.
He needs to stay healthy for the Redskins to have success. Yes, their backup, QB Kirk Cousins, had a few solid performances, but RG3 ultimately decides the Redskins’ fate.
The coaches play a factor in his health. They need to slash the quantity of read options and designed quarterback runs. While running is one of RG3’s strength, it has to be limited.
