Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will have surgery to repair a tear of his right lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and at least part of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) , and noted doctor James Andrews will be the surgeon. Griffin’s return timetable has been set at 6-8 months, the normal recovery period for an ACL reconstruction. Griffin will undergo surgery early Wednesday morning. At Baylor, Griffin did bounce back from 2009 ACL surgery, so he knows what it takes to get back to the player he was prior to the injury.
