Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is slated
to undergo surgery to repair partial tears to his ACL and LCL tomorrow,
according to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com.
Latest on RGIII: A source close to Griffin tells me surgery is now scheduled for Wednesday morning. So tomorrow, we'll also know about ACL.

Darlington added that the team won’t know the extent of the
injuries until after the procedure is conducted. At that point the Redskins
will have a better idea of a timeframe for recovery.
Griffin sustained his injuries in the fourth quarter of
Sunday’s Wild Card playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Coach Mike Shanahan
told reporters yesterday that it’s now believed that the injury took place during
a play just before Griffin went down for good while trying to recover an errant snap. He ultimately had to be replaced by backup
