Redskins | Robert Griffin needed ACL repaired

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (knee) needed his right anterior cruciate ligament repaired Wednesday, Jan. 9, in addition to his right lateral collateral ligament, according to the quarterback's father. "Robert's ACL is intact, but not enough for his profession," Robert Griffin II said, via text. "You and I could be fine. But he is an athlete. So they will replace." The timetable for Griffin's recovery is unknown at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Full knee reconstruction usually takes around a year to recover from, which puts Griffin in serious doubt for next season. A speedy recovery is very possible, much like Adrian Peterson was able to accomplish, but that situation is uncommon. Griffin's body type and healing process isn't that of AD's, so don't expect another miraculous recovery and performance so quickly in this case. Monitor RG3's progress during the offseason, but consider him a pretty risky QB option next season.
