NFL News: Redskins’ Robert Griffin III Has Partially Torn LCL, ACL

NFL: NFC Wild Card Playoff-Seattle Seahawks at Washington RedskinsFollowing the loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card game on Sunday, the main concern for the Washington Redskins was the status of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. Despite noticeably struggling against the Seahawks due to lack of mobility with his knee still clearly bothering him, Griffin stayed in the game at his own request with no argument from head coach Mike Shanahan.

The decision to stay under center for the rest of the contest against the Seahawks turned out to be costly for the Redskins with Griffin injuring his right knee in a similar fashion once again.

As a result of Griffin’s knee injury, the rookie and head coach have put next season in jeopardy with most anticipating a torn ACL following an MRI.

Fortunately for Griffin and the Redskins, the injury might not be as severe as it appeared to be on the field according to Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com:

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a partially torn lateral collateral ligament in his right knee during Sunday’s playoff game against the Seahawks, a source said.

Griffin also likely tore at least part of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), but it’s unknown how severe it is because a previous knee injury he suffered at Baylor in 2009 required two screws and a rubber band to hold it together.

With the severity of the injury still unknown, the Redskins franchise and rookie quarterback will continue to hold their breath while awaiting final word on the knee injury.

It’s safe to assume at this point in time that Griffin will require surgery during the off-season to repair the knee injury, but the real question is how much time he’ll miss next season as a result of the surgery.
