Everybody knows that professional sports are not the place to be if you’re concerned about getting injured.  It’s a hazard of the trade.  One relatively new to this world is NFL rookie, Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins.  In a wildcard playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, Griffin tore his ACL and LCL.  In the following days he then underwent extensive surgery to fix his torn ligaments and was successful, but these kinds of injures make it impossible to get back to 100 percent.

Because of this dramatic turn of events, it has caused many to look more seriously into who is at risk for a torn ACL and what that means for an individual’s estimated cost and recovery time.  Take a look at this infographic from Insurance Quotes to see just who is at risk and the costs involved for recovery. You might be surprised at what you find.
