What Can You Learn From the Knee Injury of Robert Griffin III? [Infographic]

Every young athlete dreams of one day making it big time, but none dream that an injury might cut their career short.

NFL quarterback for the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin III (affectionately abbreviated as RG3) was well on his way to achieving his dream when the unexpected occurred. In a recent wildcard playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, RG3 tumbled to the ground after twisting his right knee, and in doing so, tore his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), LCL (lateral collateral ligament), and was determined to also have medial meniscus.

If you’re wondering, “How serious can a torn ACL really be?” let me put it to you this way. The doctor who performed RG3’s surgeries said that it was a “major surgery” that was followed by an “extremely painful and arduous recovery.”  This was going to be far from a walk in the park.

The infographic below (provided by Insurance Quotes) takes us through the cost, recovery time, and risk levels for a torn ACL.
