Dr. James R. Andrews, of the Andrew’s Institute Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, issued the following update on injured Washington Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III, commonly called RGIII.
"Robert Griffin III had successful knee surgery early this morning. He had a direct repair of his LCL and a redo of his previous ACL reconstruction,” Andrews said in a press release. “We expect a full recovery and it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season. The goal of his treatment is to give him the best opportunity for a long professional career."
Griffin had entered the Redskins playoff game Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks with a previously injured knee and left the game after twisting it in the fourth quarter.
