The worst fear for the Washington Redskins was realized Wednesday morning on a surgeon's table in Florida.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III, who just finished one of the best rookie seasons by a quarterback in recent history, went under the knife of Dr. James Andrews to repair both his lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee.
Andrews, via ESPN, confirmed the procedure Wednesday.
The ACL reconstruction is Griffin's second in four years, and it raises real doubt over his ability to be ready for the start of the 2013 season.
In the following slides, we'll present the best- and worst-case scenarios for both Griffin and the Redskins following the transcendent quarterback's surgery Wednesday.
