WASHINGTON -- The doctor who performed the knee surgery on Robert Griffin III says it is "everybody's hope and belief" that the Washington Redskins quarterback will be ready for the 2013 season.
Orthopedist James Andrews said Wednesday that Griffin "had a direct repair" of the lateral collateral ligament and "a re-do of his previous ACL reconstruction."
Andrews says he expects a full recovery because of Griffin's "high motivation."
Griffin reinjured his knee in Sunday's playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He previously tore the ACL in the same knee while playing for Baylor in 2009.
