Report: Robert Griffin III partially tears ACL and LCL..

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has suffered partial tears to the anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, according to a report from The Washington Post.

Griffin, who entered Sunday's wild-card playoff game already nursing a previously sprained LCL in the same knee, appeared to tweak the knee on a pass attempt in the first quarter and then left the game in the fourth quarter after twisting his leg while attempting to recover a muffed shotgun snap.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said in a news conference Monday that the results of the MRI are prompting the team to send Griffin to Florida on Tuesday to see renowned orthopedist James Andrews for more examinations, essentially a second opinion that will decide the team's fate for the 2013 season.

"There is a concern," Shanahan said. "That's why he's going to see him."

1. He might as well plan on staying in Pensacola for a week or so,

when you go to Andrews you are probably getting surgery. He is the best though.

2. this is much better than the other rumor

of two ligaments torn. I understand that Griffin thinks it MAY be possible to avoid serious surgery. We'll see. depends on whether these are old or new injuries I hear.
