According to Chris Mortensen at ESPN:

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to be ready for the opener of the 2013 NFL regular season, according to team sources familiar with the determination made by orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews.

The torn ACL was diagnosed late Tuesday as a complete tear of the patella graft that was used to repair Griffin’s torn ACL suffered at Baylor in 2009. A team source said Andrews likely will use a patella graft from Griffin’s left knee to repair the most recent tear.

Griffin’s recovery is projected at six to eight months, barring any setbacks, sources said.
