Dr. Christian Balldin on RG3’s Ankle Dislocation Injury

Robert Griffin, III (aka RG3) injured his left ankle in the Washington Redskins win over Jacksonville on Sunday.  What does this mean for RG3 and Washington?  Per multiple media outlets, the dislocated ankle revealed no fractures in the ankle but he certainly has ligamentous injuries.  Depending on the severity of injury to the multiple ligaments around the ankle, he may have a chance to return to playing this season.  It will depend on the actual area of the ankle that is injured and the severity of the torn ligaments.
