Csnwashington.com. Here's what we know Griffin's lateral collateral ligament is born that's ligament on the outside of the right need now the structure instability. Of the other ligaments will be determined during the procedure. Again that will be tomorrow so back on September 26 2009 Griffin the third tore his ACL on this play against Northwestern State. It was the third game of his sophomore season which would ultimately be his last event year where you play the following year at Baylor wearing a knee brace. Joining us now with the very latest is at CSN Washington Redskins insider Tarek Al this year -- understand you have some player reaction tonight.

You know that's right side of the Redskins are not only dealing with Sunday's loss the Seahawks they are dealing with the potential loss of their captain their leader of their quarterback Robert Griffin the third. For a number of months I spoke to -- young earlier he said he was stunned he was -- he couldn't believe the news he had just spoken to Griffin yesterday -- the trainers room at Redskins park. And they were both fingers crossed hoping that the news was not going to be devastating. He didn't -- however an NFL is very distinct he said Griffin has already been through a serious knee injury one time in his career and he bounced back and came back from the other side. Just as good as new and he's hoping that there's -- another chance that you'll be you'll do that a second time.

I would assume right now that Kirk cousins value can be no more higher with the Redskins and any other 31 teams in the National Football League at this juncture. You know if there was any doubt that Kirk cousins who's going anywhere of the Redskins we're gonna try and flip the back up four picks that's not gonna happen. Especially given the fact that there is a very strong chance this.

Point it looks like he might have to play at some point next season. The real young also told me the team that's full confidence in the rookies that if you have to come in and do what he did against Cleveland. And start a game winning game maybe two maybe three whenever it is until RG three's are back in the lineup he said they have full confidence they trust and Kirk cousins.

Notes are we saw in just limited time the abilities of Kirk cousins this is a guy that. Obviously had a really good career at Michigan State now if this is the case coming in during training camp. Do you believe the support of the entire team would be a round behind Kurt. To actually be the starter absolutely. You know another thing to -- young told -- that found very interesting is that. The basics of the offense won't be all that different. He said that most likely just there won't be as much pistol the won't be as much play action and -- there won't be as much on zone read and triple option and all that stuff. But it was more of a pro style offense with Kirk cousins in there but like I said. He he did so well against Cleveland they have full trust that he can do it again if called upon -- should join us -- the very latest on RG three's injury and team. Potentially moving forward with Kirk cousins thank you. CSN Washington dot com.

    CSN Washington dot com. The Redskins they won their division they nearly swept their division. Made the playoffs for the first time since 2007. But you think that all the controversy surrounding RG me. Kind of Mars taints this season that was you know it all in all three seasons for the Redskins. Why he puts a cloud over go into next year in my opinion. I doesn't take away from the division does take away from the hole playoff game it doesn't take away from Wallace success and good moves that Bruce Allen Mike Shanahan made. And and the way the players played this year so to me in the record books it's it's a success. Next year now becomes a lot of cloud because of it but it shouldn't take anything away from this year. Well and you know we did take a question from Twitter today I take it got tons of questions about was it the right call.
