Robert Griffin III suffered a terrible twist to his already-injured right knee in the Redskins’ season-ending loss to the Seahawks this weekend, and early reports suggest that RGIII could be out for a very, very long time. Griffin, who has already torn his ACL once while at Baylor, will undergo tests Tuesday after initial MRI proved inconclusive, according to ESPN. Richmond television station WRIC reported that Griffin was expected to be out for a minimum of 14-18 months, though that report has since been retracted. If RGIII has suffered another torn ACL, it is expected he’ll miss at least nine months, and at any rate, the Redskins will have to plan to be without their star quarterback for the near future.

Given Griffin’s impact on the Redskins and the city of Washington (remember Griffining?), it’s important to be prepared for how severely ravaged Redskins fans will be without RGIII.
