Griffin’s knee exam goes late into the day

When it comes to the condition of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s knee, no news is likely bad news.
Still, the news remains no news.
According to Mark Maske and Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the latest examination of Griffin’s knee by Dr. James Andrews was ongoing, as of 4:42 p.m. ET.
On Monday, the Post reported that a Sunday night MRI conducted on Griffin’s knee suggested at least partial tears of the ACL and LCL in Griffin’s right knee. And that’s not good, given that the MRI conducted exactly four weeks earlier unequivocally showed no structural damage to the joint.
The only questions at this point is the extent of the damage, and the amount of time that will be needed to get Griffin back to 100 percent. Or as close to that as he ever will again be.
