The knee injury suffered by Robert Griffin III could have wide-ranging ramifications for the Washington Redskins as they begin to plot their offseason moves and look ahead to the team they will put on the field in Week 1 next season.
Before Griffin was hurt in Sunday’s playoff game, it seemed that the 2012 season would have a feel-good quality to it whether or not they beat the Seattle Seahawks.
The Redskins won their final seven regular season games to secure their first NFC East title since the 1999 season. Griffin was one of the NFL’s most celebrated players. Tailback Alfred Morris, a fellow rookie, set a single-season rushing record for the team and capped off the regular season with a 200-yard rushing performance in the win over the Dallas Cowboys that wrapped up the division crown.
