He is also rumored to have torn his anterior cruciate ligament but he will get a second opinion from team physician Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday to find out the severity.
Worst case scenario, RGIII will need surgery to repair the ligaments in his knee and at least nine months to rehab.
Unless he has an Adrian Peterson-like recovery, that time-table puts him on pace to return sometime in October.
Ironically, it was around that same time this season that the 3-6 Redskins were coming off of their third consecutive loss and being written off by everyone, including their very own head coach Mike Shanahan some believed.
Even so, those same people who thought the Redskins wouldn't be much of a threat this season had a sense that the future of Washington D.C. football was bright with RGIII emerging as a superstar.
Washington then ripped off three straight wins against divisional foes Philadelphia, Dallas, and New York to put themselves back in to the playoff race.
The Redskins would eventually win the NFC East divisional title thanks to that stretch, but the following week against the Baltimore Ravens is when the Redskins really started to feel like legit contenders.
They won a thrilling 31-28 game in overtime over Baltimore, but that was also the game Griffin III first injured his right knee.
The inevitable ligament tears that his knee suffered on wildcard weekend were disguised by a false sense of invulnerability.
The same game that helped propel the Redskins into the playoffs this season may be what costs them to miss the playoffs next season.
Their once bright future is now clouded with uncertainty.
