After injuring his knee nearly a month ago (and re-injurying said knee during Wild Card Weekend), Robert Griffin III had reconstructive knee surgery this morning to repair tears in both his ACL and LCL. Recovery time for the Washington Redskins quarterback could be anywhere between 6-8 months. That would put his comeback right around the beginning of the 2013 NFL season. That is of course if all goes according to plan.
Many have contended that the Redskins organization improperly handled the qb’s injury, and learning of the complete tears of those ligaments didn’t quell the voices. I’m very sure owner Dan Snyder and head coach Mike Shanahan are praying fervently for the early comeback date. Only time will tell. Let’s not forget Adrian Peterson came back with a vengeance after reconstructive surgery of his knee at the end of last season.
