Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has surgery to repair his LCL and ACL on Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery.

RG3 should be ready to play in the 2013 season according to Dr. James Andrews, the doctor who performed the surgery.

While timetable to recover varies, Griffin could be ready in time for the start of next season, or he could miss some time.  Recovery time for an ACL injury is usually nine-to-twelve months.  VIkings running back Adrian Peterson returned to the field in just eight months.

Griffin originally tore his ACL while at Baylor in 2009.  He hurt his LCL this season against Baltimore, missed one game and came back to play.  He re-injured his knee ligaments on Sunday in the Redskins playoff loss to Seattle.
