Dr. James Andrews expects RG3 to be ready for 2013 season

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

By now, you probably know Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III underwent surgery Wednesday morning to repair his damaged LCL and ACL.

Dr. James Andrews -- Griffin's surgeon and a Redskins team doctor -- released a statement in the afternoon with his findings.

"Robert Griffin III had successful knee surgery early this morning. He had a direct repair of his LCL and a re-do of his previous ACL reconstruction. We expect a full recovery and it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season.

“The goal of his treatment is to give him the best opportunity for a long professional career."

Hopefully, that's the goal of Mike Shanahan as well.
