This is horrible news Skins fans. RG3, accompanied by Redskins owner Daniel Synder, after a consultation in Florida will require surgery on his LCL. At that time, they will also see if his ACL requires surgery. Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery later this week. HC Mike Shanahan, after watching the films, says that the injury happened after a sack just before the next play where he planted his knee and went down.
This is disheartening and upsetting to all Redskins and NFL fans around the league. He’s been such a tremendous beacon to this team and all us fans. I can’t even imagine a season without him, but if that’s what it takes, bring on KC1 for 2013 and RG3 in 2014.

Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
