RG3 Having Surgery Today

WASHINGTON (AP) - Robert Griffin III is having surgery on a torn ligament and to determine whether there's any other damage in his ailing right knee.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the procedure is expected to last about two hours this morning. The person said orthopedist James Andrews planned to repair a torn lateral collateral ligament and examine the state of Griffin's ACL.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Redskins have not made an announcement about the latest details surrounding the rookie quarterback's injury.

Early this morning, Griffin tweeted: "Thank you for your prayers and support. I love God, my family, my team, the fans, & I love this game. See you guys next season."
