Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Wednesday morning had surgery to reconstruct the ACL and repair the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, a procedure that could jeopardize his availability for the start of the 2013 season.
The eight-month countdown to the start of the 2013 Washington Redskins' regular season began in earnest Wednesday when quarterback Robert Griffin III emerged from surgery. Renowned orthopedist James Andrews reconstructed the anterior cruciate ligament and repaired the lateral collateral ligament in Griffin's right knee. Now Griffin is rehabilitating against the clock.
"Whenever you have this done, you never have a normal knee," said Siegel, Virginia Tech's orthopedic surgeon. "You never have a knee that's 100 percent. You may have an athlete that gets back Adrian Peterson-style and is able to compete and looks good, but I think it would be unusual for him to feel great, like he has a normal knee."
