From Adam Schefter:

Uh-oh: @mortreport reports Robert Griffin III will undergo total reconstruction surgery of his right knee early Wednesday morning


So the quarterback that they gave all those picks up for quite possibily will never be the same for the remainder of his career, and it just started!

Ngata gave him the initial hit, Shannahan killed him by letting him play injured.

Sad for him. I think he'll bounce back though, just won't ever be as fast. Still fast though.

They'll lean on the run with Morris who looked GREAT. Plus they'll have Helu back next year. RG3 is a great passer, maybe this will be good for him? He'll pass more and run reckless less.

People are going to expect a lot more from him after The Curious Case of Adrian Peterson...

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

If I was RG3 I would reach out to him and ask him all about rehab and the mindset he had to be in.

Here are some more details:

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Griffin will undergo “total reconstruction” surgery early Wednesday morning to repair complete tears to his ACL and LCL. Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery and he is expected to miss six to eight months. Mortensen reported at 1:03 a.m. ET that the surgery would take place in “about six hours” placing the actual time of the surgery somewhere around 7 a.m. ET.

Mortenson's also reporting that the ACL tear was a re-injury to the graft done to repair the knee in 2009. The LCL tear is new, and both occurred sometime in Sunday's game.
What happened on the Ngata hit was diagnosed as a sprain after the MRI, and would have healed easily had they not allowed him to continue playing.

RGKnee is an arrogant punk. After the Ravens game , he said he was down before Ngata hit him and it was a late hit. That was absolutely false.

Can you provide a source for that quote?

Living in DC I have had to endure the entire RGIII saga. I like this kid and think with any other team he would have a hellacious career. However the Clanahans are going to gut him and toss him curbside in two years!

"“All of a sudden, and I had not officially met Ray yet, I feel this presence over my shoulder and this voice: ‘Ray Rice, this is Ray Lewis. I love the way you play. But, you should pull your pants up.’”

Asked what it’s like to see a deep ball from Flacco, Jones likened it to Starburst candy.
“It’s juicy, it’s good,” Jones said. “It’s like candy. Everybody loves candy. Who don’t like candy?”

6 to 8 Months? Guess Kirk Cousins is going to be the starter for the Redskins next season while RG3 ends up on the PUP list to start 2013.

Mike Shanahan is a deplorable moron.

He gambled his franchise QBs career on one playoff game and lost both. I've always disliked Shanahan as a coach and I'd never, ever want him coaching my team.

Shanahan just played someone who CLEARLY was in no shape to play. He should be punished by the NFL one way or the other for his handling of RG3 and his knee injury.

He said this during his post game interview. I remember him saying it as well.

6-8 months means he should be ready for the start of the season.
