Today, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had surgery on his injured right knee. He is expected to miss 6 to 9 months and should be back before the start of the 2013 NFL season (Credit: AP Photo) Most people have been exposed to the injury Robert Griffin III suffered against the Seahawks, when a bad snap resulted in him making a previous injury even worse. Griffin initially hurt his knee against the Baltimore Ravens in a week 14 win. The following week, Griffin’s rookie backup, Kirk Cousins, filled in and led the Redskins in a rout of the Cleveland Browns. RGIII swiftly returned, donning a knee brace, which restricted his scrambling ability. Even without being completely healthy, he won the rest of his games while winning the NFC East in the process. Three days later, after a loss to the Seahawks, Griffin has completed surgery on the right knee but he is not done yet. According to Griffin’s father, RG3 will need his ACL repaired. RG3′s ACL would be fine, if he were anything other than an athlete. His LCL will also need to be repaired, so his road to recovery will not be an easy one. Experts estimate it will take at least 6 months for RG3 to get back out on the field. Griffin boasts the best passer rating of any rookie QB in the NFL. As of now, nobody knows if he will come back and light the league up like he has in his rookie year, as it takes most athletes a year to get back to full speed after injuries, such as the one RG3 has. RG3 also needed reconstructive surgery on his ACL back in 2009. After his injury in week 14, RG3 scrambled once in 3 games for 1 yard. Before the injury he led the NFL in scrambles(43), as well as scramble yards(411). The post RGIII Completes Surgery On Right Knee appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
