07:44 PM ET 01.09 | Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III successfully underwent surgery on Wednesday morning to repair his torn lateral collateral ligament and reconstruct his previous repaired anterior cruciate ligament. Now that the surgery is complete, it leaves people wondering how long Griffin will be out as he recovers from the surgery. Early reports indicate the recovery could take anywhere from six to 12 months. That's a wide range for his recovery time, but the Redskins appear hopeful that Griffin will be ready for the start of the 2013 NFL season. Dr. James Andrews, who performed Griffin's knee surgery, echoed the Redskins' statement. "It is everybody's belief due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for 2013 season," he said.

I expect to win the lottery every week. I've got used to disappointment, hope Shanny can say likewise

If he doesn't slide, he make DL list again!

"It is everybody's belief due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for 2013 season."

Not everyone's. For his sake I hope he has an Adrian Peterson/Wes Welker like recovery. But no one should put that kind of pressure on him, including himself. Had a number of people made smarter choices he should not have ended up in this fix to begin with.

Heck with next season-We need to get him ready for the Pro Bowl. The team needs him and he is the best option to win at QB. Fortunately Shannahan is not coaching the NFC in the Pro Bowl so we don't have to worry about it. But the way defenses target RG3 and try to put him out of games- I'm not wasting any time ordering my Cousins jersey. I doubt Griffin will play in 3 games next season.

It's okay... Shanny has him listed as "probable" for the Pro-Bowl.

I feel sorry for him, simply from the amount of pressure on him.... For a 22 year old he handles it very well, but DAMN!

January 10, 2013  07:45 AM ET

Agreed.

January 10, 2013  08:09 AM ET

this article is a LIE....no one with a brain expects him back next year

January 10, 2013  08:13 AM ET

Wow rush him back......guess his future might not be that bright.

From these posts, it is obvious the fans know what is best for RGIII and the team, over the long-term. I sure wonder why the coaches don't.

January 10, 2013  08:29 AM ET

What the Redskins 'expect' and what they will *get* might turn out to be two different possibilities - I *hope* they plan for *that*

My thought was to pull RG when it was 14-0 and give Cousins 3 qtr and a 14 point lead to work with. Shanahans dentures thought it was better to leave a visibly crippled RG in the game and give Cousins 6 min and a 6 point deficit to work with. Either plan would have most likely led to defeat- but my plan extends someone's career

If they keep letting his football ego push him back to the field too soon they're gonna lose him again.

This guy is Special, treat him with care!!!

I agree...

If the guy busts his tail and he is healthy, great...but it seems like these guys are pushing so hard to get back and then blow it out again.

2nd injury, same knee...not a good way to start a career in the NFL with your Franchise player.
