Robert Griffin III, the star rookie quarterback with the Washington Redskins, had his torn lateral collateral ligament repaired and a "re-do" of his previous anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. ESPN is reporting a full recovery is expected.
Griffin III is just one of the latest athletes to suffer a knee injury involving the ACL.
WKU Public Radio recently reported on the surgical and recovery process involved in ACL injuries. We profiled WKU senior wide receiver Marcus Vasquez, a wide receiver on the football team who came back this past season from a torn ACL.
Two other WKU athletes recovering from torn ACL's are sophomore basketball player Nigel Snipes, and women's freshman basketball player Kendall Noble.
