The Future is Now!
I'm concerned that so many people are concerned about the concerning speculation concerning Griffin's concerning injury.

What you do for yourself dies with you. What you do for others remains.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

I think the best thing to do is to not speculate on the time it takes him to recover. It'll just drive you bats**t crazy. Each person heals differently, so only time will tell.
Confirmation that ACL reconstruction was required. What we don't know is how it was done, and, we don't know the extent of the LCL surgery. So it's impossible to get any further clarity on timetable from this news. Sorry.
NFL.com is reporting that the surgery is complete.
R. Griffin surgery ongoing, person close to situation just said. Griffin's ACL found to be in decent condition but "needs to be stronger."
At this point, all we really need for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s knee surgery is a few television cameras, and the yellow first down line where Dr. James Andrews is making an incision.
Now, his father has added his voice to the chorus, with RG2 saying that RG3’s right ACL wasn’t completely torn, but was repaired anyway.
“Robert’s ACL is intact, but not enough for his profession,” Griffin II said in a text message to Jim Corbett of USA Today. “You and I could be fine. But he is an athlete. So they will replace.”
The LCL (one of the lesser known CLs) was torn, and both were reconstructed by Andrews.
Griffin’s father said there was no evidence of the ACL tear on the initial MRIs, which might explain some of the early ambiguity about his condition.
Given that it’s the second ACL surgery for RG3, and the fact there’s other damage, an Adrian Peterson-type miracle rehab might be hard to pull off.
But what we know for now is that he’s in for a significant time away, and there are enough reports to go on that it’s impossible to know at the moment how long it will take.
Now that dad’s chimed in, perhaps the last man left to check with is Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo, to see if the Redskins should have shut RG3 down Stephen Strasburg-style for the good of the franchise.
just read that ACL was fine just needed to be stronger
let me say I hate the media, did you all read what that NFC East blogger wrote, that the Redskins lied about RG3's injury, that we should not believe them about his injury and they are saying that teh Redskins are saying 6-8 months so they can sell tickets, what kind of BS is that?
