Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan spoke to the media on Monday and said QB Robert Griffin III will get a second opinion and a new MRI on his knee with Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday.

Griffin, who sprained his LCL in Week 14, reinjured his knee in Sunday’s wild-card loss to the Seahawks.

The Washington Post reported Monday afternoon that an MRI exam indicated that Griffin partially tore his ACL and LCL. An MRI with Dr. Andrews will help confirm if the test results showed new or old injuries.

Shanahan said the full extent of Griffin’s injury is unknown. Backup QB Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin for the Redskins’ final drives.
