Apart from the fact that there’s no way to know how the ACL will rehab, the biggest concern, as the source explained it, is the damage to Griffin’s cartilage. With the ACL in the right knee now torn twice in less than four years, Griffin has lost enough cartilage in his knee to raise concerns about how much remains and how long it will last. Eventually, Griffin could be dealing with bone-on-bone contact, and the chronic pain that goes along with it.
Wow, as frustrating as it was to watch him dismantle our defense twice I can't help but be a fan of the kid. I hope this isn't the downfall of his career before it ever really became. On the plus side he is still on 22 which will help in recovery and even if he isn't the explosive player he was he does have decent throwing skills so he could potential re hash his playing style if need be.
