It was reported Tuesday that Dr. Andrews will surgically repair Griffin’s lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, which he tore in Sunday’s wild-card loss against the Seattle Seahawks. The surgery is scheduled for Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

If you haven’t seen Washington Redskins punt returner Brandon Banks 95-yard TD return versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the other night- it was electric. You can see the video here at Shutdown Corner.

And you can hear television analyst and former Skins QB Joe Theismann deride Banks for his evil and selfish behavior. The Redskins play-maker was a little too insouciant in the way he flipped the ball out as he hit the plain of the end zone. The replay challenge gave Theismann plenty of opportunity to really articulate his anti-showboating platform.

I see where the ex Notre Dame signal caller is coming from, but seriously this is the NFL and what Banks did was extremely mild and mundane when it comes to end zone celebration standards.
