Robert Griffin III has torn ACL and LCL

Robert Griffin III – QB – Redskins
The Washington Post reports that Robert Griffin III’s MRI revealed a partially torn ACL and LCL in his right knee.

Griffin is traveling down to Florida to be examined by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday to determine if the injuries are old or new. It’s not clear whether surgery will be required or how long the quarterback will be sidelined if the injuries are determined to be new ones. Griffin is hoping to avoid reconstructive right knee surgery for the second time in his football career, but that remains to be seen. RGIII underwent the MRI after his knee bent awkwardly and buckled underneath him in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s playoff loss to the Seahawks.
