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.
The WKU men's basketball team will be without one of their top reserves this season. Sophomore Nigel Snipes suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Monday, and will miss the entire 2012-13 season. A statement issued by WKU Athletics says a full recovery is expected in time for the 2013-14 season.
